New Fashion Talent in New York

The English text follows with a Swedish version below.
By reading and get inspired by Swedish designer Katja of Sweden I see how hard work, good ideas and sometimes good education have helped upcoming designers to succeed. Katja got her education in design at the Parson’s School of Design in the 1940th. She then launched her brand Katja of Sweden which became successful in the US and in Europe.
Today I read about another designer, who is doing the same thing.  Swedish Alicia Mariano is based in New York. After she graduated the Parson’s School of Design she launched her own brand INEZ-NY. Swedish forests and Manhattan’s buildings inspires her. She uses natural materials like fur and skin that come directly from the Swedish hunting season in co-operation with the Svenska Jägarförbundet (Swedish Hunting Society).  Elk skin are one example of material she uses, but also soft silk. She mixes hard with soft. Quality, material and form are important and give an exclusive look. You will read more about this new designer in the future, who recently was nominated Swedish Fashion Talents 2015 in Stockholm.

Genom att läsa och inspireras av Katja of Swedens liv och gärningar lär jag mig mycket om dagens designers. De har gemensamt att succé kommer efter hårt arbete, bra idéer och ibland god utbildning. Katja lyckades göra succé med sin design i USA och Europa efter avslutade studier på Parsons School of Design på 1940-talet.
Idag kan man läsa om svenskan Alicia Mariano som, även hon efter studier på samma skola, designar och når ut med sitt egna varumärke INEZ-NY. De svenska skogarna och Manhattan’s skyskrapor inspirerar henne. Genom ett samarbete med Svenska Jägarförbundet använder hon sig av enbart naturliga material från den svenska jaktsäsongen, tex älg. Men mjukt siden används också – hårt mot mjukt. Kvalitet, material och form är viktiga ledord i Alicias design. Du kommer höra mer om denna unga designer som i år blev nominerad till Young Fashion Talents 2015 i Stockholm.

Good values, hard work and some luck has created good artists that inspire us all. Instagram Sagamodellen Facebook Sagamodellen (in Swedish)
