    The Bogelund-Jensen Atelier

     

    The Bogelund-Jensen style is artistry, in her atelier Signe creates and develops all her ideas.

    “When I have created something, it will be clean, serene and simple to look at.

    When I’m done – It’s satisfaction beyond time”  Signe Bøgelund Jensen

    The collection is pieces of artwork where various gateways are inverted so history and modernity combines into creating a sense of subversion. Under the surface it embers with artistic and intellectual creativity in a quiet rebellious way.

    “Wear it as your self and/or rip it, reverse it, make it your own, choose your own accessories to create further on it. But in the beginning, all the dresses were the same.”

    On June 26, 2009, 150 guests gathered in Pakhus 11 in Copenhagen, Denmark, for an unusual party and red carpet photography of all guests. All female guests wearing the same designer dress by Atelier Bøgelund-Jensen.

    Signe Bøgelund-Jensen

     

    When I have created something, it will be clean, serene and simple to look at. To clothe women in beautiful dresses which give them the edge and feminine strength. 

    Danish fashion designer, Signe Bøgelund-Jensen has worked for several famous designers:

    Susanne Rützou, Galliano ~ Dior  and Noa Noa.

    An old luxury apartment located  in Copenhagen, Denmark, it’s 200 m2 in size and dated from the beginning of 1900. The style is inspired by Parisian apartments and a mix of feminine and tough elements. Although Signe Bøgelund-Jensen jumps in a pair of trousers when she between collections, vip customers and fashion shows is renovating the apartment in the East part of Copenhagen.

    With her own hands she has added the old rooms plenty of nostalgia and Parisian charm so it matches her own image of an open and personal home.

    “When I entered the apartment the first time I felt at home right away. The mood is slightly like Paris where I have lived and I love the high-ceilinged rooms and the original old look as I have tried to preserve because it is impossible to recreate. I started to renovate the kitchen because it was practical with 2 kids in everyday life and has just finished my own bedroom. It is an ongoing process”.

    Signe Bøgelund-Jensen founded her own brand Atelier Bøgelund-Jensen in 2006.

    Signe’s style is feminine, sexy,elegant and very played down. The shape of the woman is in focus which means that the styles always flatter the body and the personality of the woman. Signe used to work in the John Galliano studio in Paris where she developed ideas and techniques for the Dior Haute Couture.

    With her own hands she has added the old rooms plenty of nostalgia and Parisian charm so it matches her own image of an open and personal home.

    “When I entered the apartment the first time I felt at home right away. The mood is slightly like Paris where I have lived and I love the high-ceilinged rooms and the original old look as I have tried to preserve because it is impossible to recreate. I started to renovate the kitchen because it was practical with 2 kids in everyday life and has just finished my own bedroom. It is an ongoing process”.
