Sens, a well thought out name…
START OF THE COMPANY
The story of Slovenian men’s wear trade mark SENS began in 1994. I gave much thought to choosing the name and logo of my company. The meaning of the world SENS reminds me of the sense of being and touch for aesthetics (sens- French: sense, touch, and feeling). The biggest challenge in the first few years was to find a way, how to make production of clothes without an initial capital and bank support.
The first series of clothes were made on the basis of good business arrangements and trust- we were provided materials instead of being paid for our work etc. The challenge to design for men at the time, when strict classical clothes ruled the market, was more powerful than obstacles that were hindering my career path SENS became recognizable through interesting products, which filled the shelves of different shops. Products themselves formed our marketing strategy, because we could not afford to pay for advertisements at the time. The customers began to accept SENS for its quality and interesting design, colours and materials. That was the biggest reason for my personal satisfaction which is also the source of my energy for designing new collections and making business plans.
When designing clothes, I still pay delicate attention to details, which makes our clothes unique. To please our customers, I don’t mind putting more effort even in a small quantity of unique suits or shirts, so that we provide a diverse collection.
It means a lot to me, if we can build our story together with the partners, who are decently paid for the high quality of their work. I support fair trade and good relations among staff members, and live my life according to these values.
Now Sens is a well- known and valued menswear trademark in Slovenia. We are creating our new stories and collections with our treasured co-workers. We are relying on our excellent subcontractors at other locations in Europe. At the end of 2006, we opened our first retail shop, where we offer the biggest range of men suits, shirts and accessories in Slovenia. Some of our products are also available at carefully selected shops in Slovenia and in Croatia.

My career path actually started, when I was a student at the Faculty of Design and Fashion in Ljubljana. I was designing, making and selling women’s winter coats during my studies. I have always wanted to develop something unique or have a trademark of my own. My dream came true a bit later, when I established my company and trademark SENS. It wasn’t very hard for me to see a gap in the market of menswear. Personally, I’ve always been a combination of a designer and an entrepreneur and that was definitely an advantage. With my menswear collection I participated in many fashion fairs and fashion shows in and out of Slovenia. With expanding my contact base I got many new customers who I’m still working with. I think my customers can see and feel the energy I invest in my designs that gives it an even greater value.
