Palmhager is the pre-stage brand by Swedish designer Billie- Emelie Therese Palmhager, who, in 2012, arrived from Stockholm to study fashion at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. She is expected to graduate in spring 2016.
Therese Palmhager likes to question stereotypical gender roles in our society. Collections question for instance what is male and what is female, and why we feel the need to differentiate between the two. “Social conventions and human behavior is something I have always found interesting. We live in these social conventions that from an early age teach us how to behave in order to fit in with the invisible structures of society called ‘norms’.” says Palmhager, who herself grew up in a rather unconventional, family. “In my work I want to challenge the idea of what is considered socially acceptable and by doing so I hope to somehow expand ideas of what a person is and can be.”
