House of Dagmar is a Swedish fashion brand founded in 2005 by three sisters, Karin Söderlind, Kristina Tjäder and Sofia Wallenstam who decided to pick up the legacy after their late grandmother: Dagmar. She was a tailor and model of confidence with an extraordinary sense of craftsmanship and style. Not only does her name carry the brand today, her sense of quality and ambition to create timeless fashion is still very much alive. House of Dagmar creates sustainable and expressive collections with knitwear at the core. Much of the inspiration behind the garments comes from architecture and contemporary art.
