FREEMAN T. PORTER WELCOMES NEW DESIGN AND PRODUCTION LEADERS


As was announced today, Åsa Göransson and Fredrik Blank, the faces behind design duo Å.F Blank Stockholm, will take over the Head of Design. The first goal for both designers is to strengthen and clarify the brand concept, based on the history of Freeman T. Porter.

The team under Ä. F Blank began in 1997, after the two creators met in the Beckmans School of Design in Stockholm. In the year 200, they established their label, ‘Blank’ and it received numerous design awards, especially between 2006 – 2008. Since then, the two have worked together, and separately, for a number of clients and have designed men’s and women’s collections for Swedish brands like Tiger of Sweden, MQ Retail and Sir of Sweden.
