Stine Goya
Spring/Summer 2010

Stine Goya combines beauty and drama in edgy collections for the daring individual. collections that don't adhere to current trends but seek authenticity and renewal, grounded in a continual identity with a distinct visual expression. 
this is an expression that appeals to the independent female, whose personal style is an articulation of self. a person who revels in beauty and intense surroundings, she self-assuredly combines clothing to express herself and her character. stine goya's universe extends a modern framework for this individuality.
the single artefacts can, by power of their stylistic prowess, be withdrawn from the unity of the collection, and combined with the woman's wardrobe in a subjective interpretation.  the clothing is sophisticated yet understated.
each collection is founded in a depth of meaning - a visual portrayal of an emotion or tone, inspired by a wide spectrum of contemporary and classical sources that capture the essence and central design values of stine goya. 
innovating and redefining both form and colour but always with an aim for wearability. sophisticated constructions are dominated by structural silhouettes, which refer to the classical, touch upon the avant-garde but always seek to enhance the feminine.
the clean-cut lines found in form are accentuated in a bold use of colour. strong colours are juxtaposed to more subtle nuances in a manner, which inclines toward the artistic. the striking prints are a central characteristic of stine goya. they will often refer to dominant sources of inspiration in addition to capturing the dominant tone of a collection. they are a manifestation of the essence of stine goya:
beauty. drama. colour.  

stine goya graduated from central st. martins, specializing in fashion design with print, in 2005
the first collection, confetti, was presented at the copenhagen and paris fashion week in february 2007.
she now presents in copenhagen, paris, berlin and london and is carrie in prominent stores around the world.

Stylist du Jour

Catherine Baba
the Australian stylist, fashion icon and queen of bold statements
"I love colour. My favourites: vermillion, burnt, canary yellow, viridescent, purples and bullet blue. I also adore mixing graphic, bold patterns such as animal prints."

What is your life motto?
"I really believe that what doesn't kill you can only make you stronger. Fashion is about creation and re-creation, but it takes individuality, stamina, focus and a love of life- even through the setbacks."

"I truly believe that style has no price. Spending less makes creativity blossom."

"Shopping is my research. I obviously love flea markets, which Paris is renowned for, and let my senses guide me."

Do you read blogs?
"I love Diane Pernet's A shaded View on Fashion( Diane is a complete intergalactic blog queen."

"I have many spiritual mentors, but (furniture maker and fashion designer) Vincent Darre, creator of Maison Darre, inspires me greatly. He radiates a joie de vivre not only in his work but in all aspects of his life. I was lucky enough to meet him over 14 years ago at a Chanel show; he is still in my life and I find his energy utterly contagious"
