The sisters Emma Lohmann and Anne Louise Faurholt founded the brand Résumé in August 2016, and from the early beginnings, they had no intention of hiding their level of ambition to make this work. Where a lot of fashion companies start out small and slowly build themselves up, Résumé has done the exact opposite. For them, it was ever so important to go big – to raise the stakes from the start out. The two sisters chose this strategy because they wanted to be able to look each other in the eyes – in case of failure – and tell each other they did the best they could. By going all in, they also achieve one other thing: They signal to the rest of the world that they are serious about their fashion.
An international brand
During Copenhagen Fashion Week, the first Résumé collection was presented. First and foremost, the brand aims to position itself in Denmark and Scandinavia. However, both Emma Lohmann and Anne Louise Faurholt emphasize that over time, they would like to see the brand make it on the international fashion scene. The brand is gaining pace on local markets, and subsequently, the sisters will direct their attention towards other markets.

The brand Résumé rests on a long and proud tradition of working with textiles. The sisters are from Central Jutland in Denmark – a region that is also the birthplace of other internationally acclaimed fashion brands. Through several generations, the central Jutlandic family has worked with textiles, so both sisters behind Résumé have fashion and clothing production in their DNA. That combined with a solid and strong knowledge of the fashion industry will undoubtedly take the brand very far in the fashion industry.
