Meet the Designer: Vanessa Froehling


Growing up a competitive figure skater, big ‘dreams’ have always been part of Vanessa Froehling.

Vanessa Froehling is the creator behind the demi-couture label, Fräulein Couture. Being a self-taught designer and seamstress, she began sewing in 2004. Using inspiration from shape, structure, and color; each of her designs focus on being perfectly tailored. Vanessa’s creations bring a modern perspective to classic silhouettes, and encourages the wearer to express their individuality. Serving as a maker of identity, she views fashion as the articulation of a lifestyle.

The use of high-end fabrics, bold and fresh manipulations, and a meticulous eye for detail go hand in hand with her ambition and will to create something new and modern. Fräulein Couture combines innovation and functionality through her use of texture, and believes in creating unique garments that are also wearable.

Her award-winning designs have been featured in top runway shows, several magazine publications; including PUMP Magazine, New Face Magazine, and International magazine Imirage; and have been part of several art collaborations that later went on to be displayed at Las Vegas’ Henry Mohney’s Erotic Museum, and been featured in Independent Films and Music Videos.

Vanessa was voted Best Clothing Designer 2015-16 by the Eugene Weekly’s ‘Best of Eugene’ readers choice awards – and in 2017, she was nominated as Best Emerging Designer by the Mercedes-Benz Portland Fashion & Style Awards in Portland, Oregon.
