Monday was the first day of Stockholm Fashion Week. I haven’t been to fashion week since I was 17 and toured around with my friends to Paris, London and Stockholm. With a fake business card and a huge, but shitty, camera we snuck into shows we weren’t invited to, backstage where boys got undressed and parties with Kate Moss. Since, I haven’t been interested what so ever because the fashion industry is problematic as in elitist, white and wealthy. BUT, fun.So this year I figured I’d go all in and become a proper fashion princess, hehe. My babe Maria, that I know from London, and her friend Mika met up with me.First out was the intimate press show for the Danish brand Wood Wood at the bar Riche. We were only 20 people invited and the brand manager took us through the different pieces. It felt a lot friendlier and more personal to be a small group. We got to hear what thoughts and inspiration the designers had when creating the collection, rather than just showing up to show off and have our pic taken for some street style site.
I was starstruck by myself because people KNEW WHO I WAS, ”Oh how’s London?”, ”You work for metro right?”, ”How’s Hyper?” etc and well, that’s never happened so I was flattered. : ))))And I died for the collection. Just look at this twinset!!!! The colour, the cut, the pattern and the details. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 I want to wear this forever.This dress and suede jacket!*drooling*For some reason I have a soft spot for flared denim trousers that makes you look like a twelve year old who has grown 12cm over the summer and who’s clothes are now all too short.All of it very much my taste with denim, sweatshirts and focus on tailoring and material rather than extreme silhouettes or insane colours.So happy that Maria is back from Thailand and has now moved from London to Stockholm. Although I want her to move back there when I do. After the show we talked about my upcoming internship, how it feels being a skater gurl and what PR agencies to work with.
We got some amazing goodie bags and I will show you more from that and the other shows in another post! If you find these fashion week posts interesting?
