MANFRED of SWEDEN
It all started with a little Yorkie named Manfred. Manfred did not like the cold winter weather in Sweden, so we
started designing clothes for him to wear during our daily walks in the neighbourhood.
Today Manfred of Sweden has been featured world wide:In the Wall street Journal, Herald Tribune, Daily Mail,
Elle.com, as well as in-flight publications, books and numerous television appearances.
We were also included in the glossy table book “Unbridaled” by Swarovski.
An exhibit which included Manfred’s clothing at the Design Museum in Gothenburg also attracted considerable attention,
which resulted in, further exhibitions across the world, major museums and galleries, the Momu museum in Antwerp with
Swarovski “Crystal loves leather Courage”,
Unbridaled by Swarovski at The Monnais Museum in Paris with John Galliano, Armani, Azzaro, Escada,
Vivienne Westwood, Victor & Rolf.
The famous rock photographer Jan Olofsson’s images decorate a new line of Manfred’s T-shirts. Recently we created a
jacket on the Beatles’ Sergeant Pepper theme. The Manfred of Sweden brand represents a unique fusion of fashion and
functionality. Customizing clothing is key to the range. “Although Manfred is small, we can and do produce clothes for
dogs of all sizes, including big dogs,” explains Ann.
The brand has already generated considerable interest and acclaim all over the world available through high-end retailers
like Harrods in London, Bongenie Grieder Switzerland, L.A. Dog Works in Hollywood, Lap of luxury with Karen in Florida ,
Tony Valdy in St Petersburg, Russia to mention a few.
Manfred of Sweden recently won the highly prestigious Pet Fashion Week NY Media Choice Award sponsored by
Swarovski Crystallized using Swarovski Elements. This was judged by the media representatives, confirming
Manfred’s status as the premier brand in this field.
Japan is another country that is succumbing to Manfred's spell. Recently at The Big Site in Tokyo, we were exclusively
represented in the Swarovski Booth with five Crystallized jackets.
Manfred’s fairytale jacket that was shown for the first time at the "Media choice awards Pet Fashion Week in New York”
has 2500 hand sewn Swarovski Crystals was the main attraction at the New York Pet Fashion Week Tokyo Project’s runway.
