With an MA in Womenswear Design from the prestigious Royal College of Art in London, and with many years experience within companies such as ERDEM, Cecilie has developed a strong understanding of creating high quality garments with unique techniques. Bahnsen just won the Dansk Design Talent Award this past fall, and is recieving attention globally due to the outstanding detail and quality of her creations. With a focus on craftsmanship, Cecilie takes inspiration from traditional techniques such as quilting, patchwork, and appliqué embroidery and uses them in new and adventurous ways. Her simple and feminine silhouettes work as beautiful canvases for her delicate embroidery and fabric combinations that all show a deep understanding of structure & craftsmanship, whilst playing with modern & alluring ways of layering transparent and opaque pieces.
