The spectacular Berns Hotel served as our home here in Stockholm.
My gurl Rumi Neely (that’s Fashiontoast to you) stayed on the second floor and she invited me to visit her room (212). It’s funny how she liked my room better than hers while I liked hers better than mine.
Cheap Monday Spring Summer 2011 Final Walkthrough Video
Thought I’d share this video I took of the Cheap Monday spring/summer 2011 fashion show finale here in Stockholm.
Keep an eye out for the legendary Kirsten Owen who walked the show. She’s iconic! She’s been modeling since the late 80s.
It’s intriguing to watch this Swedish denim company evolve over the years. Cheap Monday’s core DNA and foundation are their trademark skinny jeans, which, next season, comes in zebra stripes in gold glitter.
First of all, I am terribly, terribly sorry for the lack of updates. It’s very unusual for me NOT to update my blog this long. The whole month of May has been a whirlwind of long-haul plane rides, cross-continent journeys, car rides, etc. I guarantee you regular programming will resume soon.
I’m currently in Stockholm, Sweden, home of fast-fashion megabrand H&M (Hennes & Mauritz). Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of meeting Ann-Sofie Johansson, H&M’s amazing and super gracious Head Designer.
