Together with RFSU, a Swedish NGO that fight for body rights around the world, we've created ELISE — a fashion brand that empowers people to take a stand for Body Rights together.

The collection is shot by artist and body activist Arvida Byström, and sold exclusively at ELISE1933.com and Colette in Paris.
