Britten Landstrom
Wearable Art

ARTIST STATEMENT:

Born in Northern Sweden, where her grandmother wove rugs from out grown clothes, Britten learned the beauty of reusing fabrics.

Later, living in Stockholm, life took different turns; travelling, dancing and teaching. By "chance" she came across some vintage fabrics that brought her back to childhood memories. The fabrics "talked to her" and her one of a kind clothing line was born. Clean lines - let the fabric talk - became her motto and women looking for artistic clothing frequented her studio.

Circumstances led her to California in the mid 90's. She developed a clothing line using vintage japanese kimonos and obis and her one of a kind pieces sold to high end boutiques like Harari Inc. Her whole sale line at Miriana Ojeda show room in LA sold to Nordstrom Gallery as well as boutiques around the country. As an in-house designer at Harari Inc. (2003-2007), she sold to Nieman Marcus and other high end boutiques in the US.
