Linnéa has been working with materials ever since she can remember during her childhood growing up on a farm in Eastern Oregon. Always building, designing, creating. After studying at Oregon State in fashion design, she felt transferring to FIDM (the fashion institute of design and merchandising) in Los Angeles would help broaden her knowledge. Before starting at FIDM, a semester abroad was up Linnéa’s sleeve and off to London it was.
Linnéa earned high marks in her studies at FIDM and one degree in apparel manufacturing management wasn’t enough. She took another degree though FIDM, international manufacturing and product development, once accepted to this prestigious opportunity she and her 9 class mates worked and traveled along side JC Penny developing new brands for the company.
After graduation Linnéa took a job as a pattern maker, a year later is was time to move on. A random invite to a photo shoot and off she went!
Today Linnéa creates props for sets and styles the wardrobe. Her background studies, especially the pattern making, allows her to see what a garment will do once on the body before most. Being able to know how materials react to movement gives her an edge in the styling and also prop building.
She also is constantly dreaming and creating when at home. From jewelry to bathing suits to furniture, something is always happening.
Linnéa currently lives in san diego in her little beach cottage.
