My fascination with garments started when I was about 7 years old and always drew my very own “designs”. I even took sewing lessons to pursue my fashion designer dreams. I was the weird kid with the ballerina shoes with skulls on them and I loved it. In high school we had to visit universities to explore our future but schools like AMFI were just not for me. Instead I went to uni and studied the theory of fashion and its’s connection to identity in Stockholm. I am intrigued by the Scandinavion fashionworld and how progressive they are with gender issues and feminism. I still plan on working in fashion in the future, but heck knows where I’ll end up!
I would call myself a feminist and I get tired of people that feel intimidated by that term. It’s not a matter of becoming ‘better’ than men – it’s a matter of having the same human and normative rights. I feel like fashion can really improve things for everyone, not just women. I want to wear what I want, without being restricted to gendernorms. Why do we have to wear uncomfortable pencil skirts and heels to be seen as a professional? It’s about time that those outdated and unwritten rules are going to be erased. What you wear should define you as a person, not a sexe.

I don’t really know how to describe my fashion sense. I think it is a bit all over the place. You can see me wearing mom jeans and a wonderfully ugly vintage shirt, but on other days I love wearing floral dresses and big chunky boots or platforms. It might be a mixture of 90s inspiration mixed with new fabrics, prints and colours.
