Irene Häggkvist - Fashion designer

House of Horses

All my life I've been enchanted by horses, their beauty and nobility. I also love the equestrian world - the aesthetics and beauty that goes along in the riding apparel. The smell of leather, details of the handcrafted items, centuries old traditions and gorgeous fabrics. Few years back I wrote a series of articles for the Finnish riding association's magazine about the history of equestrian gear and fashion. This was very interesting for me, not only because of my love for horses but also because of my profession as a fashion designer. Spending time together with my own horses and learning to know them, has made my passion to the horse world even deeper. Now finally my dream is coming true and I get to work with all these beautiful items. In the beginning of 2016 I'm opening "House of Horses"  - a webstore selling equestrian items. House of Horses will not be a traditional equestrian webstore, the selection will be carefully handpicked around the world - including also the products that aren't so easy to find online, from small local companies that are yet unknown for the bigger audience. I wish to share stories behind the products, innovations, small factories and designers - but also stories from customers. We all have one thing in common - the love for horses.


Warmly welcome to follow the story of House of Horses. Stay tuned :)
