HIGH-the gardens of beauty

To be in these gardens was like being in a secret garden-in another time. A timeless time.

HIGH- behind the scenes

Now is the time ! Choosing pictures… I have so many.

Make-up van on location at the house of Green Knowe, known as Englands oldest still habited house.

Claire Campbell, the designer of HIGH and Francoise  Ha Van, the  art director.

Model Siri Crafoord waiting for her turn. She lives on a farm in Sweden.

Model Beth Brown getting her hair done by Mauro from Italy. Beth lives on the countryside in Devon.

Me in the van waiting for hair and make-up

Photographer Yoichiro Sato shooting Siri holding bottles with home made vinegar in her hands.

Lunch and high tea! We were being so well cared for, all home made organic food and scones and different jams.

Siri turned out to be a master at ” the wheel”.

Both Siri and Beth were young and very healthy models living normal lives. So was I when I first started my modeling career. I was young 19, today most models are a lot younger. I was slim, that was my natural state and I never had to watch what  I ate in terms of quantity, on the contrary, I was a big eater, although I always was a vegetarian. Today a lot of the models starve themselves to be slim and that is really sad. I work with some of them regarding this and wish to do so even more in the future. My wish is for fashion to express beauty in a holistic sustainable way, including the body and nature. Inner and outer nature.

More behind the scenes pictures will follow later today.

HIGH-the label, designed by very talented Claire Campbell, choose me last summer as their first choice model to do their spring/summer 2011 photo campaign:

HIGH on Life! HIGH on Love! HIGH on new and wonderful Friendships! HIGH on being in Englands most beautiful gardens! HIGH on being a model my age and to get the chance to do such beautiful photos that have not been under the photo-shop beautifying knife! (And in case you don´t know it yet, neither have I. My decision to not do anything radical to my face was taken long ago as well as my decision to explore and get to know the deep inner life. That choice is mine, one can say it has been and is part of my life-path. Everyone have their own.) In so much gratitude to this whole team that I had the privilidge to spend 4 beautiful summer days with, including my birthday, I take the freedom to put out a little “taste” of the small book that is the finished product from our collaboration. You can find all the pictures at www.H-I-G-H. com. The very first in the world HIGH shop is in Stockholm at Birger Jarlspassagen off Birger Jarlsgatan. Claire loves Sweden and did her 3 previous campaigns here, on Gotland, in the Archipelago and in Lappland at the Ice hotel. This little booklet that we did is in the shop, you are welcome to it, as well as the new spring collection. Tonight when I get back home I will put out my own “Behind the scene ” pictures from this trip. Last night I made a first choice of 78 photos out of 300 so that has to be slimmed down a lot more I guess. All for now!

Week-end, kurs, kristallvärld och tonårsvisdom

Kurs/ utbildning i Feminint Företagande, där jag både är lärare/ förebild och deltagare. Här sitter Alva och jag i en övning/ att dela med oss av våra talanger. Se mer på www. feminint -foretagande.se om du önskar. Det är fantastiskt inspirerande att vara i ett rum där alla 34 deltagare är kvinnor och kreativa. Och totalt bidrar till varandras framgång.

Lunch på cafet i Kulturhuset i Ytterjärna, där kursen är. Jag vet inte varför men ordet feminint har en större laddning än kvinnligt. Kvinnligt är det och det kvinnliga sättet att ta sig an en kreativ process är väldigt flödande och inkännande i första hand. Sen agerande. Och då väldigt mycket utifrån ett helhetsperspektiv. Alla kvinnor här har projekt med grunden i hållbarhet/ sustainability och ekologi. Alva skapar dom vackraste tyger med växtfärgade tryck som ger en känsla av att befinna sig i naturen. Ni kommer att se mig klädd i dom framöver. Jag håller bl.a kurser i inre skönhet. Kommer under våren-sommaren.

Den här underbara Kristallvärlden kånner jag en SÅ STARK LYCKA i. Det jublar inom mig!

Fick det generösa erbjudandet att sova i 13 åriga Tanyas rum där visdomsord och uppmaningar fyller väggarna. Och även bilder på Edward och Bella. I en tonårsvärld kan man älska både och..!

A gift…

Unwrapping and unwrapping and unwrapping a beautiful gift of Love, slowly staying with each moment until the Book of  Silence reveals itself. The journey of a woman to her innermost being.
