We were very excited to learn that Syvênde Swimwear had been chosen as one of twenty Design Talents at Formex 2020, one of the leading Nordic design arenas. Launched in 1960, the fair attracts about 20,000 visitors, buyers and media representatives from all over the world.
“To get the recognition of the esteemed and brilliant minds behind Formex feels simply amazing. I am so very thankful and humbled. I cannot wait to present my designs and vision for a more sustainably luxurious fashion industry.” Merima Zeljkovic Abrigo, founder and designer of Syvênde Swimwear, said when we got the news.
Formex was held at Stockholmsmässan in Stockholm, January 14 - 17, 2020. We made a lot of new friends, especially other sustainable and upcoming brands such as Syvênde. To mention some of our new friends and fellow Design Talents: The Shoelace Brand, Lisa Daisy, Hanataba, Ljung by Ljung, Planticum and Amnon Lipkin (best in show).
Houzz.com is a community of more than 40 million design enthusiasts and professionals— around the whole world. Sara Norrman of Houzz.se found Syvênde founder and designer Merima in the Design Talents area of Formex, and here’s the result (in Swedish):
