What happens in Sweden?

The 6th of June is Sweden’s National Day. We’re in many ways a quite humble people – quiet, avoiding arguments and well educated. Today however we are allowed to really celebration our country. We don’t do it with patriotism, more with a nice day with friends and family, with music and dance and good food. 

I don’t very often look back in a nostalgic way but when it comes to fashion it’s fun. There’s so much to explore and lot of the traditional cloths and colours return in a modern touch. The skirt above is from the 1970th made by Katja Geiger, one of Sweden’s first successful designers. The print makes me think of a Swedish summer day in June, like the National Day.

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.
