About me

After leaving my German roots, studying fashion design for 4 years in beautiful Barcelona with internships at Vivienne Westwood and Preen in London and a semester abroad in UdK Berlin, I graduated with a 1st class degree in Fashion & Textile Design in 2007. Soon after I started ‘Borne by Elise Berger’ - a womenswear brand, being designed in the sun, sold internationally at fairs like Tranoi and Capsule in Paris and New York. After having my children, I found that my passions shifted to little fashion, and Little Borne with the Sweat/Jog COMBO is the happy result that was successfully funded over Kickstarter in April 2017. Little Borne is a UK-based kidswear brand offering super comfy and practical, unisex sweaters and joggers for children aged from 1 through to 10 years old.
