Ole Yde Luxury womenswear designer Ole Yde kick-started his career following his graduation from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts’ School of Design by designing one-off dresses for private customers. In 2005 he established his own label, YDE, in Copenhagen. Known for their classic femininity and modern elegance, YDE’s designs are characterized by a mix of contemporary Nordic aesthetics and rich materials. In 2010, YDE helped earn the designer both the Sølvtråden Award and the GINEN Award for Designer of the Year. YDE’s prêt-à-porter lines are presented annually at the Copenhagen and Paris fashion weeks, and unique, one-off creations – from wedding dresses to luxury evening wear – are available from the YDE Atelier.
