About Jannike Sommar
Born and raised at the Stockholm’s archipelago, Jannike Sommar is a queer fashion designer that screams quietly through bold colors and naive-yet-purposeful designs. Jannike’s pronouns are she/they.
Her unique, almost humorist aesthetic was developed from her background as an introvert lesbian growing up between the city and the nature.
With the ambition to create her own queer universe in fashion, outside of the heteronormative approach, Jannike moved to Belgium at a young age and was one of the 6 master students who graduated from the royal academy of fine arts Antwerp, in 2016.
After presenting her master collection, Jannike kept pushing her instantly-recognizable style defined by the use of bright colors, embroideries and signature patchwork figures.
Always standing for equality, Jannike has collaborated with several art performances, drag queens, musicians and in 2020 she moved to Paris to create her brand.
Challenged as a non-conform and introspective person in a world dominated by norms and extroverts, Jannike Sommar created a visual language that loudly expresses pride.
