Let The Show Begin

Let the show begin, turn it against the wind, it's not what you think.
Sometimes what you first see is not the reality.
Put it into perspective and oh you have another view.
It might be scary, so be aware of your fear.
Don't fake the long way, do it the strong way.
Walk in fire if that's your desire.
Hands are for workers, use them without abusing them.

Rodarte, Backstage

Two sisters, Kate and Laura Mulleavy, from Northern California, inspired by the nature that surrounded their childhood. The forest, the wood, the water, the golden light that is created by the sunset or the sunrise. The results of hard work, playful thoughts, inspirational moments, and collaboration between the bond of sisters, are beautiful queens walking down the runway, with golden lashes and sun-kissed skin, side-parted hair, wearing the creations. Fish tails, wood & leaf patterns, shapes that sculpt the hips, the waist, the shoulders. On top of that, nostalgic music that puts the production in complete beauty.

Interview With Ingela Klemetz

Ingela Klemetz - Stylist/Musician

I met Ingela when I got back to Sweden from my holiday. We worked together, and it struck me what a beautiful and radiant person she is. With her individual style and genuine spirit, she captured my attention and I wanted to know more about her.

How did you start styling? And why? All throughout my life I've been interested in clothes, shapes, make-up and have always used them as a means of expressing myself. Even during my time as a artist & songwriter, I was dressed like my music. Clothes are like an extension of my soul. My band and I started making music around year 2000, called Sago (fairytale) Rock. Then one day by chance, I helped my man, who is a photographer, style one of his shoots. I loved it! Because of this I left music and crossed over to styling.

What inspires you?
Everything inspires me. Most of all, nature. But also music, people, movies, moods, architecture, animals and people from different cultures.

How do you like to dress? I don't like tight clothes, and would never wear jeans. But I love to wear kaftans when I'm at home. When I'm going out, I prefer to dress according to a mood. It can be anything! Designers that fit my body-type are: Lanvin; Marni, Ysl, Prada, Bottega. I used to buy a lot of vintage, but I'm now tired of it because of the available selection. It's so limited nowadays. Because buyers are more conscious about vintage, it's often overpriced, and sometimes more expensive then buying new.

What does music mean to you? Music sometimes means a lot to me, and sometimes not. I love silence almost more than music, but music as an art form is fantastic. If I want to get inspired, I put on classical music. I also love contemporary musicians like Lee Hazlewood, Velvet Underground, Donovan, etc.

Autumn Fashion Week

The melancholy skull
The persian pattern
The developer for the unconscious

Reminds me of the autumn, the dull color combination of the items, all naturally put together, character objects, like the real human skull, or the pencils, the shoes on the floor or the couch. It makes me want to catch a brush and paint the moment's fiction! It wants me to let the leaves of the autumn come into the room and bloom. It makes me want to inhale ice-clear wind, burn my lungs for some seconds.

The autumn is soon here, fashion week is about to start, designers will prove half a year of hard work, their ideas and vision will turn into reality. A style will grow, a part of art is in circulation. It will change shapes, develop from the past, and build a future.
