We are Female Founders for Fashion.
We believe in enabling women entrepreneurs in the fashion industry – to become even better women entrepreneurs.
Founded in 2020 by the three female founded brands Akenberg and Studio Heijne, Female Founders for Fashion is rooted in the desire to empower women entrepreneurs in the fashion industry, and to create a space where women business-owners can seek guidance and collaborate alongside like-minded women.
By joining forces, we aim to support, inspire, share and learn from one another, and to be part of this growing #womensupportingwomen initiative to foster successful and thriving businesses in the fashion industry.

The clothes are designed and produced according to the customer’s measurements and specific choice of details. In the collection you will find ecological jeans, wool suit trousers and blazers, silk dresses, tops, silk scarves and face masks, amongst others.

Tripulse is a new Sweden based sustainable activewear brand founded by Franziska Mesche. Instead of using conventional synthetic fabric, Tripulse uses innovative natural material with excellent performance features which benefits people’s health and our planet.
Tripulse has a holistic approach to sustainability and their products combine quality, comfort and performance with a user-centric and timeless design. All clothes are ethically made in Europe.
Despite the growing number of women founding their own companies and creating their own brands, they are still held back. Many times, facing challenges and obstacles such as limited funding (finance is one of the major problems faced by women entrepreneurs, regardless of industry), not having the right network, lack of knowledge and experience of how to navigate in the competitive fashion industry.
We want to change that.
We want to see more women reach their goals, expand their businesses on a larger market, and succeed.
We stand for equality, equal opportunity, and the right to be a total badass. We stand for empowerment. To determine our destiny, our path forward and who we bring along for the ride.
Because we are women. We are Female Founders for Fashion.
