Fonnesbechs unique and more than century-old heritage is the starting point of the brand. In 1847, Anders Fonnesbech opened his eponymous shop in Copenhagen. As a true visionary, he sold high-quality fabrics, textiles and garters and when his son entered the business, it evolved into a true fashion house - producing its own collections and accessories and importing the best fashion at the time. The re-launched Fonnesbech is built upon this legacy. Swipe on the picture to see more on heritage.

During the 1930’s, 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s Fonnesbech grew into the most exclusive department store in Copenhagen. Today, Fonnesbech is still placed in the building at Østergade 47. The first re-launched collection was presented at the official Copenhagen Fashion Week in August 2014, with the SS15 collection “A” as a tribute to Anders Fonnesbech.
