Youth Talent, Industry Approved


Christian Adamsen, fashion designer and entrepreneur from Vejen, Denmark creates feminine clothing with a luxury aesthetic.
Not exactly a new kid on the block, Adamsen has been sewing since he was 12. It would be a delayed notion to say that he’s just a star in the making, as this self-taught designer has clearly exceeded a typical teen-aged pupil with an artistic devotion. Then again, what exactly is a “typical teen” these days? Certainly, there are young blogging stars, painters, and even musical wonders.  However, it’s great to see designing youth making impressions in an often cut-throat economy.
At 16, Adamsen has a direct focus on an evolving market, specialising in an industry that literally affects everyone in some way. Whether it’s through a trickling effect from the runway or mere inspiration worn, it begins with forms of art. 

“There are a lot of Danish designers in Denmark; if you have a technique learned in school you do it one way … but also my artistic fashion career has taken off quite rapidly. You learn things as you progress,” says Adamsen. The unconventional designer actually credits his fashion learning from YouTube tutorials, and reading books, though presently he also has a helpful patternmaking mentor.
After speaking with Adamsen about his eponymous label, there was stirring moments when listening to the acute designer express his passion, especially when talking about constructing gowns that make women feel glamourous.  
“One of my most proud designs is a beautiful dress that I made for the Danish celebrity, Sarah (Louise), a long ball gown with layers, silk chiffon, and corset.  I am very proud of that, says Adamsen.”

In his creations you’ll find dresses with graphic prints that are carefully printed by one of Denmark’s fine detailed printers, a working relationship that’s manifested over time. “I work on the prints in Photoshop and Illustrator … the result was beautifully graphic prints that read as a sophisticated look, says Adamsen.
“The next collection is all about luxury,” says the designer (Think Dubai, Egypt’s gold colouring, and silks.) However, for the fall 2012 collection, “I’m inspired by the moon, snow, [and] crystals. It will be more dramatic with deep reds and black crystals. I have a jewellery maker making a corset in jewellery,” says Adamsen.
Until recently, Adamsen’s full collection has all been produced by himself, but for the impending line it will be the first time being produced by other people. So what’s next? The designer will graduate this year and will continue working on his flourishing label, which will hopefully include expanding within the UK and US boutiques in the future.

  12. thank you for introducing me to his fabulous designs, pardon my ignorance, I have never heard of him. But I like his sense of color and print design. His style is flowy and feminine and he understands the woman's shape and what looks good on her.
