Borne by Elise Berger has many origins, but one place that will always be at its heart is the Barrio Born in Barcelona.
This maze of old streets bursting with the new and inspirational is where you can best feel the pulse of the city, and over the years it has had a great influence on us and is where our "Little Seres" took shape.
Originally a site for jousting in medieval times, the name comes from the old verb "bornear" (now "tornear") which means to twist or to turn, just as Elise does with elements of classic menswear tailoring that get spun into new silhouettes.
So when we were asked to take part in the "Born a.m." fashion show last Thursday we were delighted to introduce our Borne to Barcelona. The show took place along the length of the Passeig del Born, with nine other emerging designers from the area showcasing their collections.
We had a fantastic night, with even the "Junior Creative Director" getting on stage at the end and would like to say muchas gracias to all the helped to organise the show, but particularly to PoloPelo for working their magic on the hair and make-up.
Lookbooks are almost printed and website almost built, lots more to come from us over the next couple of weeks - keep your eyes peeled!
