Best Sartorial advice from your parents?
“Hel och ren,” best translated as ?wholesome and clean.? Because of them I really take care of my precious fashion pieces and feel guilty when I walk around in a coat with a missing button.
New Yorkers, I love the city and think people here offer more diversity and sense of style than anywhere else in the world. An afternoon on the town beats most fashion magazines when it comes to inspiration.
Describe your personal style?
I think dressing is like acting, I am always trying to dress for an imaginary roll that I make up in the morning? like today I want to be a 70′s biker chic from France, or pretend that I am on a cruise in the Stockholm archipelago. I like conceptual dressing, and in my concepts elegance and femininity are always the key words.
I really love an old pocket watch from the 1910′s that belongs to my family and therefore gives it extra value.
I feel best wearing?
Colors, I don’t feel like myself in black.
Is there a particular color?
I am a red loving girl it is the dominant color in my wardrobe. I tend to wear red every day, and if not, my red lipstick shows my never-ending love for this beautiful color. Red represents everything from revolution to love. It is a color that makes people happy and energized – at least that is the effect red has on me – and the reason why I stay faithful.
This photo of you was up in Scott?s solo show at The Danziger Projects, how did it feel to see a photo of yourself up in an exhibit?
To me, the photo sums up fashion week by showing excitement and exhaustion at the same time. I remember the moment when the photo was taken, how much my Miu Miu shoes did hurt after running around the city and how my brain was trying to sum up the shows and how much I was looking forward to that evening. When I saw the photo at the exhibit it made me go back to that special day and it reminded me, and still does, why I keep running around in uncomfortable shoes.
How do you feel about people’s responses to the photo, both online and in “real life”?
Both thankful and entertained. A lot of people refer to me as ?the girl in the red dress,? and since I think the photo represents me really well I am happy to hear what people have to say!
Do you get recognized by people?
I get recognized a lot by people because of Scott’s work. People sometimes come up to me when I am waiting for the L-train and want to talk about my style. One funny thing is when other photographers ask if they can take my picture during fashion week they always refer to Scott?s work.
The first thing I look at in another Sartorialist’s outfit?
I always look at the color combinations first, and then the concept and then I make up a story around what the person is wearing.
I always break this fashion rule?
I love unexpected color combinations and always trust my gut feeling when it comes to this, even if it looks weird the first time when I see myself in the mirror.
I never break this fashion rule?
?Wholesome and clean,? I will for sure never be a punk when it comes to my looks.
