Louise Lyngh Bjerregaard is a fashion designer based in Paris known for blurring the boundaries between couture and ready-to-wear. Founded on craftsmanship, an obsession with textiles and a meticulous attention to details, the brand holds a strong focus on technical sensibility while uniting art, fashion and subversion.
Bjerregaard was born in Copenhagen, the youngest child in her family. She studied tailoring at the Scandinavian Academy of Fashion Design in Copenhagen and interned with designers Dennis Lyngsø, Anne Sofie Madsen, Asger Juel Larsen and Mike Eckhaus at Eckhaus Latta in New York. She started out in fashion by working on a project with Lady Gaga and in 2015 she studied knitwear at Central Saint Martins in London under professor Sarah Gresty.
Bjerregaard launched her namesake womanswear brand in 2019 and relocated to Paris in early 2021.
Her work has been featured at a number of institutions including Maison du Danemark, the National Gallery of Denmark, and Moderna Museet Malmö amongst others.
Louise Lyngh Bjerregaard is best known for her textile expertise and artistic knitwear, although in an interview with Dazed and Confused, Bjerregaard stated that she ”felt the need to break out of the knitwear label that’s been put on her name”, asserting that her brand was not a knitwear label and demonstrating this through her runway collections. Her brand is also known for its zero-waste policy and sustainability.
Bjerregaard had her runway debut in 2021 during Couture Week in Paris with supermodel May Andersen walking the show. A few months later she debuted digital at Copenhagen Fashion Week in August 2021. Earlier that year, she was shortlisted as finalist at the 2021 Zalando Sustainability Awards and the 2021 Magasin du Nord Fashion Prize.
In March 2022 Bjerregaard debuted her first ready-to-wear collection with trans activist and Diesel muse Ella Snyder walking the runway. Same year she was nominated as ”Name of the Year” at the ELLE Awards. In February 2023 she debuted her first artisanal ready-to-wear collection during Paris Fashion Week at 35/37. Included in her cast was BoF500 model Aweng Ade-Chuol.
