Ingunn Birkeland (b.1979) is an Oslo-based fashion designer known for her unique handmade woven square patterns, red carpet dresses and show pieces. Exquisite details, time-consuming techniques and artistic expression are central to her work – in combination with her very own specific palette of pastels and fluorescing colours.
Birkeland has a masters degree in fashion design from the Oslo National Academy of the Arts, and started her own label Ingunn Birkeland Oslo (IBO) in 2005. Since then she has had several fashion shows and exhibitions, and dressed up celebrities and royalties for many occasions. Several Norwegian museums, amongst others the National Museum in Norway, has bought outfits from Birkeland for their permanent collection of Norwegian fashion design.
