I'm writing for TellusFashion

You might have noticed a new icon in the left corner "Writes for TellusFashion", I'm happy to announce that I'll be writing about general fashion news and you should check the blog frequently for interesting posts. This is a brand new site and it's focus lies on upcoming designers and the best thing is that you can buy their clothes at the site, click here. There's a lot of beautiful and unique pieces, I'll post my must-haves soon.
Not only will striving designers be able to promote themselves on the website but everyone working in the fashion industry, even if your a fashion journalist or stylist you can create a profile on this site.
The release-party for the site will be held in late November in London, if you'd like to attend enter this competition. It's going to be a night to remember with a hot fashion show.

This is still my blog and my activity here will not diminish. But I'm looking forward to growing with TellusFashion.

Ni har förhoppningsvis lagt märke till att jag placerat en ikon i vänster hörn "TellusFashion", jag är glad att presenter att jag nu kommer skriva om modenyheter på denna hemsida och jag hoppas ni kommer följa mina inlägg där. Detta är en helt nystartade sajt och till min förvåning av två svenskar, ni kan läsa en intressant artikel om dem här. TellusFashion säljer kläder designade av rookies och det finns många unika godbitar (jag kommer snart lägga upp en önskelista). Sidan är inte bara till för modeskapare som vill nå ut till en större publik utan för etablerat modefolk som journalister och stylister.
Det kommer hållas en storslagen releasefest i slutet av November i London med en stor modevisning och ni kan tävla och vinna biljetter här.

Jag kommer fortsätta blogga här som vanligt, men ser fram emot att växa med TellusFashion.

San Diego by Night

Photo taken with an iPhone by The Decadent Dance

Some random pictures from different parties we attended, this can be seen as an homage to the Cobrasnake and Terry Richardson's Diary (I'm thinking about the picture of me in the NYPD cap, typical "Terry photo style"). One night we went to Foster the People's afterparty and we had the chance to see them DJ and then we danced all night long. If you like the band you should watch The Late Show with David Letterman tonight because Johnny Depp is attending and they'll be playing right after his interview.

TIP! Sign Up at Net-a-Porter

Click HERE to sign up for updates at Net-a-Porter.

You know Karl Lagerfeld is one extremely busy man when he's juggling designing for Chanel, Fendi and his own label (which has been put on hold for the moment). As if that wasn't enough, this year he's been filming commercials for the ice cream brand GB (Magnum), designing glasses with the well-known Swedish Orrefors Kosta Boda, re-designing the Coca Cola light bottle... And not only this, he's a photographer and his photos are often seen in all the renowned fashion magazines. Surely I have missed something, but I don't need to mention more for you to get the idea of how hectic this man's life is. Then we can understand why he had to put the Lagerfeld label on hold. But Net-a-Porter reminded me that Karl's new designs will be available in January 2012 in their store and I'm very enthusiastic about it! Though I'm very surprised that he did find the time for it.

Ukrainian Fashion Week

Many fashion blogs out there don't usually report on Ukraine's Fashion Week and the same goes for me, it's always passed me by - but not this year. I wasn't mightily impressed by what I saw until I found the brand LUVI and their spring collection. The models that came down the runway were dressed in fierce black and white creations and the looks above really stole the show. The outfits included tailored jackets, symbolic crosses, interestingly cut leather jackets, tights in a shimmery fabric and a lot of black transparent material.
The only thing I wasn't fond of was that the models walked barefooted on a catwalk with some stones scattered on it. I can see why they had no shoes, the designer might have wanted them to be more "down to earth", maybe she had a vision of free spirits. But I looked at a video from LUVI's fall collection -11 and the models were once again walking with nothing on their feet, and they stepped on what looked like a string of salt over the runway. I think these looks would have been even more impressive with some McQueen inspired heels.

My face was actually the first thing I saw when I clicked on the tab "Video" on FashionWeek's website.
