ROUMANS is a sustainable fashion label for contemporary menswear, based in the city of Nijmegen, the Netherlands. The label was founded in 2018 by Sophie Roumans, one year after graduating Fashion Design at HKU in Utrecht.
In 2017 Roumans received national acclaim as her graduate collection entitled PROMISE was selected for Lichting 2017 and was subsequently shown during Amsterdam Fashion Week. The follow up collection OMERTA sought to aestheticize the contemporary ecological villain, drawing from the infamous 50s gangster attire. In 2020, Roumans’ most recent collection entitled RUINS was shown at Helsinki Fashion Week 2020.
ROUMANS garments are produced according to the highest sustainability standards. They are crafted from the finest leftover fabrics, alongside recycled and certified textiles and materials, and made locally by a limited number of hands, all equally devoted to craftmanship.
In doing so, ROUMANS is committed to minimising its environmental impact whilst creating a meaningful new take on the aesthetics of contemporary menswear. Wearing ROUMANS means that you are contributing to the betterment of the fashion discourse, making it more durable and inclusive along the way.
