INUIK is a newcomer on the Nordic fashion scene. The label is based in Nuuk, the capital of Greenland. Although INUIK is still taking the first steps preparing for production phase the label has received numerous honors including participation in the Nordic Fashion Biennale in Seattle in September 2011.
Najannguaq Lennert Davidsen,the creative mind behind the label, was born in 1980, in Sisimiut, Greenland. She lives and works in Nuuk.
Davidsen design is inspired by traditional Inuit clothing. Her design enhances both feminine and masculine traits, and features sporty and functional cuts. There is a subtly humorous element in her designs, where one recognizes arctic life, fauna and animals. In an innovative and interesting way she combines native materials from Inuit hunters with fabrics from other parts of the world.
For the dottirDOTTIR label Davidsen gives us a taste of what is to come by making some unique one-off items handmade by the designer herself.
