Timeless fashion that last is rare. The above Katja of Sweden dresses are from the ‘Katja goes to Africa’ collection in 1963, shown at the Oomph exhibition at the Malmö Konstmuseum. Katja went to Africa to get inspired and found beautiful prints and textils. That would be the case even more today.
African fashion is full of colours and prints, see fashion legend Adama Paris and the young designer and TV-host Ayanda Nhlapo in her own fashion business show. African fashion is on its way to inspire the world. The Katja of Sweden dress below is one of mine, probably also inspired by Africa. However see Adama Paris’ website and you find colours and happiness.

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.
