Storiebank was founded on the 8th of November 2018 in Sweden, by Fashion Designer Sara Borgström. Sara had previously worked within fashion design in London, Milan and Sweden. After a long break from industry she relaunched with Storiebank, with the ambition to forward a modern type of digital freelance company, that works towards inclusion (See DESIGNER BIO).
Storiebank became an official member of the Fashion Tech network in spring 2019, and launched the website in June 2019. Now we look forward to the exciting journey that is ahead of us.

Storiebank’s internal mission is to bring our unique stories alive. Our stories differ in both creative form and content, with the aim to inspire. We see ourselves as the Seed of Inspiration that generates echoes of creative sparks across the globe. We work interdisciplinary together with professionals across many domains towards one mutual goal – Inclusion…
We use our creative magic to bring forward and present a Multidimensional Beauty to the world. To us, Multidimensional Beauty means a creative philosophy that looks at beauty from many different angles, and challenges our creative minds into making everything we get involved with as beautiful and appealing as possible. To enhance and bring forward, to highlight, to lift and empower in a humble approach, and to show rather than tell.
Furthermore, we always thrive towards the best sustainable and ethical choices for the garments and its production, that has the lowest impact on the environment.
We aim to innovate rather than imitate, and wish to enhance the existing beauty in our models and visual representations, rather than forcing it into an unnatural format.
We aim to use a humane and diverse representation, and to become the balanced meeting point that is more appealing than the current industry standards. Because if we can’t show the world that beauty can take many forms, then how will the collective consciousness ever change the way they perceive what beauty is and can be?
Focus within our work should always be on creating an equally balanced and inclusive representation; and our creative teams always thrive towards presenting the best possible version of our stories. Beauty can take many forms, and the creative challenge within Storiebank is staying true to our values, and to our stories simultaneously without compromising the visual expression.
Storiebank aims to grow and become an Equal Opportunities Employer, that welcomes everyone to join who shares our values and cherish our mission that Multidimensional Beauty is the way forward!
