LET´S BE MORE GENTLE TO THE ENVIRONMENT

I´m so proud to wear this awesome dress and leather coat from my former classmate´s brand, i & KK, a brand that is not only classy but also sustainable. People often assume that environmental friendly, sustainable or  “green” fashion brands are boring and unfashionable, something that in reality is not correct. During the last few years the majority of fashion labels, from luxury brands as Burberry to fast fashion companies as H&M, have focused more and more on becoming more sustainable and gentle to the environmental. I’m delighted to see that the fashion industry is taking environmental issues serious.

All of i & KK´s products are made in Finland and every manufacture process is controlled by Krista to ensure the hight quality of the garments. Recently, you can also customise your products at i & KK, click here for more info.

THE BITTER SWEET FEELING

To follow your dreams and give up (or perhaps pause??) your life in one place in order to move abroad is a bitter sweet feeling. I knew that this feeling is going to appear/happen the moment  I decided for sure to move to London, especially because I already have done all the ”things” that follows when moving to a foreign country,in the age of 19. Back then, giving up your life and more or less blindly move abroad  (and barely knowing anyone or having a place to live) was the obvious choose. Thinking back, it felt as like this: no hassles, no fuss, I´m doing this!!! But few years later, now at the age of 26 it is more difficult. Just the though of leaving your family and friends is scary. I just want to convince everyone important in my life to move along with me to London, a fantasy and an illusion I know is completely impossible.
Anyways, I really do hope my friends, old as new will come and visit me in London. But first, before I send invitations all around me, I really need to accommodation!  This is a huge challenge since finding an affordable, suitable room with cool flatmate. And of course I want to be close to all the fun happenings and events in London! Trust me, this is much easier said than done, especially still living in Sweden and try to find a good place via the internet, but I must stay positive. Now,the flat/room hunt may begin. Wish me good luck y’all!!

WAR WITH HEAVEN

Hello 2014! So this is the first post for 2014. I must say that I can´t believe that year 2013 is already over, the year have went by so fast. The big happenings for 2013 have been that I chose in september to move to Borås from Lund to study a master degree in Fashion Management instead of moving to London, which was a very hard decision to make because I´m a big London fan and have been longing to move there (again) for some years. But I decided to give Borås a chance and that a higher education is always a better idea. London is not going to go anywhere :P The year 2013 have been bit challenging I must admit, I have lost some friends long the way, studied very hard, have failed and tried to stay positive and optimistic in difficult situations. But I really believe in the saying what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. I´m not dead and I´m definitely stronger ;)  and I´m looking forward to this year and have decided to make sure that 2014 is going to be an awesome year.

Since I moved to Borås, I have meet wonderful people and started to collaborate with some of the design students at The Swedish School of Textile, such as Carolina Rönnberg that designed the dress Im wearing. Carolina Rönnberg grew up far from the fashion world, in a small town in the north of Sweden called Vilhelmina, a town people usually work in the forest, driving trucks and such as. Being fascinated in fashion and particularly haute couture, Rönnberg decided to move and follow her dream.

Rönnberg has won several design awards in Sweden, such as Show Up Fashion Award and Umeå Fashion Week AwardWilhja is her brand name , which is a wordplay of the word ”will” and the name of her hometown, Vilhelmina. Some pieces of Rönnberg´s latest collection can be found on Nelly.com (click here).

One of the many advantages of my university, The Swedish School of Textile is that I´m share the same building as the design students, and gosh, they are talented. One of my favorites design student is Klara Hobbs, an English- Swedish girl that decided in a very young to work in the fashion industry. After graduating high school she moved to Borås to become a designer. The dress I´m wearing from her latest collation, called Untitled until further notice.
