Jane & Judy Aldridge will be hosting an Anine Bing trunk show at Elements Thursday, December 13th and you’re invited!
Jane will DJ and we will be serving sips and bites from 5-7. If you’re not familiar with Anine Bing and her collection of effortlessly cool jeans, t-shirts, leather jackets and studded ankle boots, read the bio below:
Bing was born in Denmark on 30 November 1982. At age 7, Bing started to take violin lessons, but eventually turned to singing. She honed her singing skills with the prestigious Royal Danish Academy of Music choir. At age 10, her family emigrated from Copenhagen (they had lived in the suburb Brønshøj) to Sweden because of her father’s career. Despite spending most of her life in Sweden, she declares her nationality as Danish.
Bing has been in the fashion industry since the age of 15. Besides music and modeling, Bing has done several design collaborations with different brands. Eventually Anine began dreaming about making her own clothing line, a dream which finally became true. In the summer of 2012 her self-titled clothing line was launched and it became an instant success.Bing says: “I want to create clothes that are easy to wear. The pieces should work just as good for everyday use as for a night out. To me the quality together with the fit are the two most important factors in a good piece of clothing, so naturally that’s what I focus on in the design”“I am a mom, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to dress well. My aim is that regardless if you are a mom, a model, a lawyer or a teacher you should be able to find cool and suitable pieces from my label”.The clothes are made of the finest materials, all according to Anine’s rock-bohemian style. Anine gets her inspiration from music, L.A. flea markets, bloggers and from life at large.

Specialising in exquisite tweed coats, Cyprus-born Katherine Hooker is one of London’s most sought-after designers.
But her inspiration came completely out of the blue.
She stumbled across a coat in a Jerusalem junk store when she was 18, which immediately sparked her interest.
“It was black silk and made for a 14-year-old Hasidic boy. It was high cut under the armpits and looked amazing on. I wore it to death,” she said.
The coat eventually wore out, but her interest carried on and she tried her hand at designing, creating several patterns.
Katherine took these patterns to a clothes manufacturer who agreed to produce them and the rest is history.
She now counts celebrities such as Jerry Hall and Sarah Brown as her most famous enthusiasts.
However, it is the future queen Kate Middleton who has significantly raised the designer’s profile.
Katherine’s structured outerwear has been a staple of Kate’s wardrobe since they met in 2005.
