About the owner

Thelma Haupt is the founding owner of Solsken Clothing. She received an International Diploma in Fashion design from Jolene’s Fashion Academy in 1981. She then chose to pursue a career in theatrical costume design; where she gained extensive knowledge and valuable experience in the fields of film, stage, fantasy, fancy dress and historical costumes.

After 26 years of working behind the scenes in the entertainment industry, in April 2007, she decided it was time for a change. She took her great love for period costume, her unconventional personality and her own personal style and elegance and combined them into a unique blend; this combination became the essence of Solsken Clothing.
