Veersila-historien: Fra konsept til virkelighet

Veersila: The Story from Concept to Reality

I remember it as if it were yesterday. We were in our small apartment in East Oslo. It was a late winter night. I hadn't been able to sleep properly for the last few days, there was a restlessness in me, and I knew I just had to dive into it. There I sat, Willian Pozo, a passionate football player who always had a heart reserved for fashion, together with my life partner, Bethy. She, with her sharp eye for trends and a sense for entrepreneurship, was my perfect counterpart.

We talked long into the night, driven by a shared passion and a dream of bringing something new and fresh to the streetwear world, with a special focus on tracksuits.

The Dream of the Ultimate Tracksuit Takes Shape

A couple of days had passed since our first conversation about creating something new within streetwear. Here we sat again, and as on other evenings, the topic was fashion – and especially streetwear and tracksuits. Bethy and I had long shared a common frustration over what we perceived as a lack of authenticity and courage in the streetwear scene, especially within tracksuits. We were looking for something that was more than just clothes – something that could convey a feeling, an attitude, a story.

"What if we could create tracksuits that really stand out?" Bethy suddenly said. We began to sketch, ideas started to come, and drawings took shape on paper. It was as if all our previous conversations and dreams had led us to this moment – the creation of Veersila, a brand that would not only showcase our style but also tell our story, our values, and our view of the world through the tracksuits we would create.

The Road from Idea to Tracksuit Reality

The start of Veersila was a journey marked by challenges and dedication to creating the perfect tracksuit. As a professional football player, my days were already filled with training and matches. Balancing this with developing Veersila and our vision for tracksuits was like juggling two full-time jobs.

Bethy, with her background in startups, was the brain behind our business strategies. Her experience and visions for Veersila and our tracksuits were crucial. She navigated us through the business landscape while I explored the design and aesthetics of our tracksuits. Together, we ensured that every Veersila garment, especially our tracksuits, was a true reflection of our values and dreams.

The First Tracksuit Design

Okay, let's talk about our first collection of tracksuits. It was not just a collection of clothes. We took inspiration from everything and everyone around us and mixed it into something unique – tracksuits that were not only comfortable but also conveyed a story and a message.

And of course, our beloved Oslo. The city has given us so much, and we wanted to give something back through our tracksuits. We wove elements of the city's soul into our designs – a mix of history and present, reflecting its energy and diversity. It was our tribute to the city that has fostered us and our dreams of creating the perfect tracksuits.

The Reception of Our Tracksuits

When we launched Veersila, it was a heady mix of excitement and nervousness, especially around our tracksuit collection. But the response was incredible – people loved the authentic designs and the way they connected to our story of tracksuits.

People flooded in with comments and feedback. Many said they felt strong, unique, and connected when wearing our clothes. What really struck us were the stories we heard. People from all kinds of backgrounds told how Veersila had inspired them and given them a sense of belonging. Veersila became more than a brand – it became a movement, a source of inspiration.

This reception was not just a confirmation of all our hard work, but it also ignited a new fire in us. We became even more excited to continue with Veersila, develop the brand, and touch more lives.

The Road Ahead with Tracksuits

Veersila is so much more than just clothes; it's a dream of creating the perfect tracksuit that has become a reality. We look forward to creating new collections of tracksuits and telling more stories, always focusing on authenticity, quality, and the unique story that each tracksuit can tell.

This is the beginning of the Veersila adventure, an adventure where tracksuits play a starring role. We look forward to sharing every step of this journey with you, exploring what lies ahead, and together discovering the endless possibilities that await in tracksuit design and innovation.

Veersila is not just a project for us, it's a lifelong journey. We're not just here to sell clothes, but to inspire and influence. We look forward to seeing where this journey takes us, and hope you'll join us on the way.
