Design can be art. This impressive dress was designed by Katja of Sweden in 1972. Sometimes Katja worked alongside artists to create special pattern. Those collections stood out from others as the pattern were a bit more creative and challenging. The pattern on this dress was named Dynasty and designed by Sven Fristedt.
It takes a woman who want to stand out from the crowd to wear this!

Design kan vara konst. Den här häftiga klänningen gjordes av Katja of Sweden 1972. Ibland arbetade Katja med andra konstnärer för att skapa mönster. Kollektioner från dessa samarbeten uppmärksammades eftersom mönstrena var mer kreativa och vågade. Mönstret på klänningen ovan heter Dynasti, skapat av Sven Fristedt. Kvinnan som bär en sån här klänning vågar stå ut från mängden!

My interest in Katja of Sweden started with a passion in art, vintage, retro, design and fashion. Katja of Sweden is part of Swedish fashion history and she was a great designer of international standard. Katja's life was like a saga, hence the name of the blog. Katja was the start of my journey to get inspired by people who stand out and create their own future and business. Good values, hard work and some luck has created good artists that inspire us all.
