”The Suit Collection,” that is what fashion designer, Sia Rosenberg, calls her graduation project where her starting point is the iconic garment, the suit. The suit has existed virtually unchanged for two hundred years and is a refined and adapted ideal of the masculine body and psyche.

But Sia Rosenberg is not making clothing for men – on the contrary, she wants to eliminate the design expression so that the traditional, monochrome three-piece suit will materialize in a new form for women. “Instead of creating traditional, classic suits targeted for women and directly translated from the masculine expression I want to examine the female voice in a male-dominated universe and thus create a versatile expression,” she says.
