Victoria Ladefoged (1976) Danish designer. Victoria Ladefoged has a BA in fashion from the Kolding School of Design from 1999 and An MA in Women’s Fashion from the Royal College of Art in London from 2001. In addition, she is trained as a men’s tailor. In recent years, Victoria has begun to work with recycled wood and textile in her company re:something. “When I design and develop new wooden objects it’s usually a playful process, like building with toy bricks. I usually saw bricks into various shapes and play with them to arrive at new designs. I like a simple and somewhat rustic expression with careful detailing.” Victoria draws on her experience from both design and tailoring when she works with wood. From her work as a designer she brings the love of details, from her work as a tailor, the knowledge of materials and the exquisite craftsmanship. All Victoria’s products are made of recycled materials and handmade in Denmark. Her design has roots in the Danish tradition of crafts, supplemented with an element of playfulness. Her goal is to create high-quality products on a sustainable basis. Victoria’s characteristic is distinctive Danish design skilfully made in Denmark by hand. The design is simple and clean with an undercurrent of humour and playfulness. Sustainability is a serious matter, but it does not always have to be conveyed as such. She believes that if we turn sustainable design into an issue of guilt and obligation, the concept is doomed. We have to companies and our own shop: SORT SLIPS HVIDT SLIPS ( BLACK TIE WHITE TIE), in Copenhagen.
