The signature look of Lea Adelsten is colourful. She seeks to explore foreign cultures and myths and mix them with Western clothing traditions. Following the success of her 'Ghosts of Himalaya' collection, Lea was asked to take part in the prestigious Designers Nest design competition in Copenhagen in 2012. Later, she had the opportunity to showcase the same collection at the world's longest catwalk in Hong Kong in December of that year. Lea Adelsten graduated from the Copenhagen School of Design & Technology in January 2013, with her Mictlán A/W13 collection.
