About Us

A little bit about our story


Linda Bergkas | Director of Visionise

Our Story

Our story began back in 2015 a few years after I sold my own brand and tackled my new journey of motherhood. I had my brand for 9 years and took it from a design dream to the reality of a boutique shopfront with over 200 stockists, featuring in Australian Fashion week, and even starting up my own factory in Bali. I had no background in fashion design when I started, but growing up in a small mountain village in Norway I had sewed my own clothes from a young age.

After selling my brand I found myself with all the tools and knowledge from my years in the industry and I wanted to put them to good use. I wanted to help other brands create successful and sustainable platforms for their businesses and prevent easily avoidable, yet common mistakes. So, I slowly took on small brands and assisted them with design, set them up with trustworthy factories that I knew would look after them, and we grew from there.

Fast forward 5 years and my team started to grow and with this our services too. Helping brands is a passion for not just myself, but for my team too. Everyday our team has the same core values, helping brands to grow sustainably in business, with ethics and transparency at the forefront. We genuinely want success for each and every brand that we connect with.

Speaking of our team…


We are a small but mighty team, Kara runs all day to day operations, then we have our incredibly important Senior Design Team. From our humble office in Newcastle, Australia our design team works to bring all of your design ideas, screenshots, and scribbles to life. Although as a client you will be appointed your individual designer (no one likes being bounced around) our team collaborates often, inspiring each other for the better of all of the brands that we work with.

Everyone on our team has dabbled in their own brand in the past, clothing, some accessories and even home textiles. We have all had our own experiences in learning expensive lessons, problem solving and, of course, picked up tricks and tips along the way. We have also experienced the frustrations of having a brand and that is why everyone on the team is so passionate about transparency, setting realistic expectations and genuinely helping.

Kara

Kara is passionate about ensuring the factories that we refer our clients to are indeed run ethically and nothing is slipping through the cracks. She is also going to touch base with you on marketing and budget along your development journey. In a nut shell Kara is involved in everything Visionise, but is not in the design process (unfortunately, she admits, she was not blessed with those artistic skills) With years of both domestic and international experience with fashion brands and account management, and our longest standing employee her expertise is invaluable to both our team and our clients.

Fashion Brands that we have had the pleasure of working with over the years

Our collaboration with our clients varies to suit them best. Some of them came to us for help in design development only, some just fabric sourcing and manufacturing.  We are so proud to have been a a part of their journey, as little or as much as they needed us along the way.
