​DKC COLLECTIONS

​​The collection is inspired by Desirée's childhood in Sweden and Scandinavian art forms such as bark weaving and folklore.

In fact the whole collection is named Maj after her mother.

The collection is versatile with some classic pieces (of course with a twist) and a couple of unique creations as well.  

It is fashion as an art form in its true sense. In this collection it is especially evident that she has had many years within the fashion industry and now can experiment with more unique techniques using rouching, draping and even water colour painting on some of the pieces to create truly beautiful and one of a kind garments.


Every piece has been exquisitely made and will be available to order as made to measure garments or in UK sizes for overseas customers. 

Please visit our Collections page for more pictures and information.
