After 25 years working for several couture brands as Givenchy, Christian Dior and children's brand Jacadi, Norwegian born, Gunhild Nygaard created her own brand GUNHILD in 2008.
In 2009 she was honored by the French Government receiving the award « Paris Capitale de la Création » for her brand GUNHILD. The brand name was changed to KANELES in 2018, which was her nickname when she was a little girl.
Her experience in Couture and Luxury gave her the opportunity to work with beautiful fabrics and classical tailoring. She has also had the honour of dressing Scandinavian Royal Family Members for official occasions.
Gunhild is inspired by the Parisian style seen from a Norwegian point of view and is dedicated to all the girls who enjoy being a woman.
