About Us

Founded in 2023, 1313 SELAH is a contemporary menswear brand hailing from Oslo, Norway, offers a fearless approach to politics, spirituality, and cultural heritage through the lens of fashion. After years of gaining valuable experience at the helm of the most prominent brands in the Norwegian fashion sphere, the founders Duy Ngo (39), Tomas Silva (36), and Erik Spanne (33) are determined to create a voice of their own, with 1313 SELAH as their vessel.

1313 SELAH blends contemporary fashion with Latinx street-culture. Inspired by subcultures and musical influences that shaped the founders upbringing, this highly personal project honors fearless self-expression and empowerment through clothing. The brand's distinctive aesthetic combines exaggerated silhouettes that interweave aspects of street culture, classic tailoring and ceremonial attire.

Duy Ngo, born and raised in Østfold, has a father from Vietnam and a mother with Vietnamese and Chinese roots. His upbringing was characterized by cultural influences from both Vietnam and China. His mother is a seamstress, and from childhood, Duy would draw clothing that she would sew for him. Throughout his life, Duy's mother and her expertise have followed and supported him.

Tomás Silva was born in Chile but moved to Norway at an early age with his mother and older brothers. His multicultural upbringing instilled in him a deep appreciation for diversity and cultural exchange from an early age. During his youth, he developed a strong aesthetic sense, which later led him into the fashion industry.


Erik Spanne born i Stavanger Norway, started his career in the music industry, under various projects he has toured the world multiple times, from the dark clubs to the big festival stages.
