JUS has been an institution in fashion in Sweden for over 25 years. We met with Ulrika Nilsson, founder of JUS, to talk about fashion, buying and about the customer.
Tell me when your interest in fashion was awakened?
“I was a punk in my youth. I made my mother sew spotted and checkered skirts. Coincidences led me to fashion, I was actually more interested in literature. Johan Lindeberg and I met, which led me to become part of Diesel Sweden.
Tell us about JUS?
“When I started with JUS, I saw fashion as much more political than I do today. JUS might have been perceived as somewhat messier, a little harder. Today, it’s more poetic. Then, England and street art was a strong influence, today I’m more inspired by Belgium and Japan.

Hi, Susanna Strömquist, freelance fashion journalist commissioned by Dagens Nyheter Kultur and ELLE. What is your relationship to Yves Saint Laurent?
– From a fashion-historical perspective, Yves Saint Laurent is the 20th century’s most significant name. The designer who captured the spirit of the 1960s and launched trend-setting pre-porter collections when the haute couture began to feel misplaced. But to me personally, he also became a representative of the old guard that had become mossy when I first began to report from the displays in Paris in the early 90’s – before all began to be about heritage and archive design.
Under the headline Icons we’re sharing a fashion memory with you. Long before todays’ Swedish fashion scene, Katja of Sweden started her journey and created a foundation for the Swedish fashion industry. With a sense for fashion, brand building, a strong stylistic intelligence and a willingness to think outside the box, Katja of Sweden created her own brand and design that still inspires and influences. Katja was also a feminist who fought early for her rights in an industry dominated by men.
