EasySize begins the series of blog posts “My Fashion Company”. The purpose of this project is to discover designers and fashion brands. We aim to inspire young fashion designers to find their true “self” and boost creativity. To begin with, we decided to say hi to the outstanding Copenhagen based fashion company, which is well known for its unique style. Here is a closer look at maxjenny!.

Is a young, niched and pioneering fashion brand, based in Scandinavia. Dedicated to innovation, wearability and function. maxjenny! is designed, constructed and run by Maxjenny Forslund since 2011.
About the designer
My name is Maxjenny Forslund, autodidact fashion designer, from The Royal Danish School of Design in Denmark. I specialize in printed fabrics/outfits.
I do the prints myself and my speciality is folding fabric from high-quality sustainable materials.
I apply the art form, reduction of seams and I strive to avoid sharp boundaries between the seasons.
Style that works well, transcends seasonal trends!
