Gestuz was created in 2007 by Sanne Sehested Nielsen.
The Danish fashion brand Gestuz is best known for its Iconic leathers which run through all of their collections, often featuring special design details making the styles more unique for the wearer. The brand epitomises the laid back Rock n’ Roll aesthetic with minimalist silhouettes and androgynous styling, yet incorporates beautiful prints and luxury materials which bring a softer, more sophisticated side to the look. There is an understated coolness and elegance to the Gestuz collections which is typical of Scandinavian brands.
Sanne created Gestuz 10 years ago as she felt there was a gap in the market for a contemporary and affordable, fashion forward label. For Sanne and many stockists of the label Gestuz acts as the bridge between the High End designer labels (which inspire Sanne) and the High Street. The collections are always very personal to her, ensuring they meet her own daily wardrobe demands. And to this day she remains heavily involved in every aspect of the business, along with the loyal team who have been behind it from the very beginning.

Gestuz has built up a great following amongst key press titles and has recently been featured in titles such as Cosmopolitan, Elle, Grazia, Red, Stylist and The Times. Celebrity fans include Olivia Palermo, Rita Ora, Kate Hudson, Jessica Alba, Cat Deeley and Fearne Cotton to name a few.
Gestuz has gained a solid presence on the International design scene, being sold in over 25 countries. Among UK stockists are Coggles, Flannels, Jules B and Tessuti. The Gestuz collections pride themselves on being of the moment while at the same time using high quality fabrics at accessible price points. Gestuz is the must-have collection for every fashionista looking for an affordable designer look.
“The Scandinavian design ethic is inbuilt in every one of our team and is a core part of the brand DNA. We are minimalistic and clean in our style so we are very Scandinavian in this sense; however, we combine this with the rock and roll vibe that the brand is known for” says Creative Director, Sanne.
