Elisa Heinesen is a Faroese designer based in London.
The ethos of her work is to be free of the traditional fashion season, pieces that are created are therefore instantly available.
There is an emphasis on creative sustainability, unsold pieces are up-cycled where ever possible and materials are reused. A recent addition to this practice has been the "Second Chance Handbags" which are created using leather from discarded furniture. This gives the material a second life and thereby reduces waste at the same time.
Elisa Heinesens work is two fold, she produces showpieces and regular line all within the framework of seasonless fashion. Aesthetically that presents two platforms, one showpiece and another that is functional wearable clothes.
Elisa has participated in shows globally spanning diverse art forms such as fashion, music, theatre and opera.
Elisa Heinesen is a third generation creative and spent her formative years in the Faroe Islands where her father is an international fine artist and her grandfather was an award winning author and composer. Her early environment did not give her an introduction to a creative life but rather that life inside the parameters of art are natural and all encompassing.
