London College of Fashion – day 2

So second day of school is done. I can’t explain how much I love it here so I’m nog gonna try to either but oh my I’m so happy here.


Today we met some of our teachers – Fifi who will teach us in fashion history and artifact and Michael who’s the teacher of British cultural studies. They both seems amazing and I got so inspired by the both of them. I just want the classes to start NOW.  We also met a woman who work for WGSN who thought us how to use their services which was fun cause when I studied at SoFI in Norway my trend forecasting teacher taught us so much about the things she talked about so I felt right at home at once haha. Now I’m reeeeeally tired after all the info and impressions of these last two days.

Tomorrow we will be walking around London and hopefully I have the opportunity to take som pictures for the blog. Now I’m off to meet up with two american girls from school for some coffee.



London College of Fashion

Today I started studying at London College of Fashion where I will spend the next year. I’m starting as a Fashion business student and the next semester I’m planning on taking Fashion media and communication.

I moved to London last Saturday and I love it here. I feel so at home and I’ve done that since landing at Luton airport. I moved here and applied to the school through the IBS agency which the other Swedish girls did as well and it’s really fun to have them around. I share a small room with a Swedish girl and we share the entire floor with 9 other super sweet IBS girls. So right now we’re getting to know each other and the rest of the students in our class. This week is orientation week but I can’t wait for our classes to start next week. This semester I’m taking buying & product development, Luxury brand management and Trend forecasting and then we have some mandatory classes such as history and artifact and British cultural studies.

I had the pleasure to work with some wonderful people during the shoot and I had so much fun doing it. I’m really excited to see the results when everything is done. I hope you like them.

Guess who’s back?

Hi there!

I’m sorry for the way too long pause of mine. The truth is I’ve ben so busy the last weeks that I haven’t had time to prioritise the blog. But now I feel really inspired and can’t wait to get started again.

Lately I’ve been working my a** off. I’ve been working 9-5 monday-saturday in the store and done some styling projects before and after work to gain experience (plus it’s super fun) and build my portfolio, on top of that I’ve been at school and had some finals in different courses such as personal styling and fashion semiotics which has due tomorrow along side that I’ve been working on our graduation project in styling which will be finished in two weeks. But thankfully it’s gone great and I got a really good grade in personal styling so I’m really happy! We’ve also started a new course that’s called trends & society. I think it’s super interesting and our teacher is really really good so it’s very inspiring! I think teachers is the most important thing in the world and luckily for me I’ve had the honour to attend a school with nothing but the most amazing teachers.

I can’t wait to show you my styling project when it’s finished! I cross my fingers that everything will work out the way I hope it will.

Have a great day everybody!

Personal style & Image

Right now we’re having a class in personal styling at school. I think it’s really interesting how you can use colours, print and shapes to bring out your best features. Personal style and image is about finding out who you want to be and how you want the world to see you. Some of the following pictures are my recent school projects which include a wardrobe plan for a man and guides between different style personalities such as bohemians, minimalists and classical beauties. On monday we’re gonna style each other and I’m really looking forward to it. I’ll show you some pictures then.



This is the minimalist, what defines this look is the simplicity in the pieces but still with a twist such as the black details on the yellow coat or cut outs on the frames of the sunglasses.



the classic look includes clothing that never goes out of style. It’s an elegant and feminin look.



The dramatic style personality is perhaps the most fun and playful there is. Less is more do not exist here. To nail this style try to mix and combine different materials such as leather and silk together with wool och fur to really create some drama around your outfits.



The relaxed style is all about comfort and with a hint of sporty.



the bohemian look is easy to spot. It contains fringes, prints, fur and a lot of details. often with tribe and ethnic references.

when it comes to dressing and creating your look don’t be afraid to combine the different style personalities with each other. Try pairing your basic white T with a pair of leather pants and the classic pumps with a twist in colour or details. This creates a curiosity around your looks and make you and your outfit stand out from the crowd.

Male wardrobe planning

#1 man

This is a wardrobe planning for a man in his thirties, he works in the IT-industry and he’s not into clothes or fashion at all. So his wardrobe has to be functional with key pieces that he can wear on and off work. By building his wardrobe like this it creates a variety of different combination with just a few pieces. The colours and prints are chosen due to what’s suitable for the client and his body. One everyday wardrobe and one suit. Amazing how much you can do with so little, right?
