Elen Sviland, founder of OdinkO, got more than 25 years of experience in the fashion world both as a Design Director as well as in Product Development. After working within 3 continents, both as a fashion designer and product developer, she realized that there is a gap in the market for a full service offering, from design through to sourcing and production.
She has worked as Design Director for multimillion dollar companies such as Jordache Inch and BBC Apparel NY and is known for innovative approach while understanding the commercial side as well. Her collections have been sold at places such as Macy’s, Walmart, Nordstrom, Bloomingdales and numerous independent stores and boutiques.
With her advanced knowledge of apparel development process from inception through production, including but not limited to: pattern making, grading, construction, costing, manufacturing, embroidery, materials and machinery used in apparel with an eye on all design details, deadlines, and potential costing challenges, she has learned to reach the highest quality for the best price.
Elen has a multicultural background being brought up in Norway in a highly creative environment with her mother being a fashion designer and her father an architect, studied fashion design at Artez in Arnhem, The Netherlands and worked in Italy, Hong Kong, USA and the Netherlands. This has given her a broader, more tolerant view on fashion and its target groups.
