Q&A with Inspirational and talented Sanne Sehested, the Creative Director & Founder of the Danish fashion brand Gestuz


This week’s inspirational focus is the cool designer, of one of my favourite Danish brands Gestuz, Sanne Sehested. I met Sanne a couple of years ago at a Gestuz press event where Sanne was presenting the newest Gestuz collection. Sanne was stylish, confident, talented, and with an amazing energy. I was sitting in a wooden chair drinking my coffee and observing her, and after the succesful event I thought,  “Sanne is that kind of woman I want to be” – she just had “it”. Very hard to explain but since meeting her I have fallen more in love with the brand. And I wear if often and I wear it with proudness.

Therefore I want to focus on this cool ambitious stylish Sanne to get more knowledge about her and to spread it out to all of you guys.
Below are Sanne’s favourite pictures from the newest Gestuz campaign. Following is the Q&A with Sanne about her motivation and ambitions with Gestuz. 2016-06-02-gestuz_ss17_set_05_199-vf 2016-06-02-gestuz_ss17_set_03_082-vf
