“I always design with the customer in mind. I want the SANSU woman to feel that she can safely dress beautifully, knowing that sustainability runs through the design process and choice of materials”
Susanne Schanche Sandgren is the designer and founder of SANSU. She has always been driven by passion and creativity, and started designing her first dresses at age 7. After international marketing studies in Norway and New York, a Masters Degree in fashion and textile design from Milan, and several years of working in the fashion industry with design and sales, she established SANSU in 2019. Her main inspirations when designing are the theories and concepts of simplicity and minimalism, the colors and textures in nature, as well as her love of art. During her studies in Milan, she became aware of the environmental impact of the fashion and textile industry, and therefore made a vow to herself to always work with fashion in the most sustainable way possible – by designing timeless pieces made to last, in the most eco-friendly fabrics available, yet never at the expense of style, quality and comfort.
