Bazaar aug. 1968

Such big challenges right now! My hard disk is absolutely full! I`m working for hours each day  to look through, sort out and restore lots of photos and documents. Meanwhile life is happening in all kind of ways. I have been to the Stockholm Filmfestival and seen some movies with the theme fashion and models. That comes soon. Right now some old stories…

Bazaar brought me over to New York to do this cover and  some more fashion stories. As I arrived in the studio, no make up on, they were quite upset somehow and i did not understand why until they sent for the previous cover (which I had done in Paris a few months earlier), showing the crew what I COULD look like. Relief! I was 20 then. Was picked up at the airport by a limo and brought to the house of Eileen Ford, the big model mama. It was an honor to stay at her house and I was greatly cared for, a beautiful room, fresh squeezed orange juice in the morning and a car bringing me where I needed to go for work or appointments. All of that because I was booked for Bazaar! It was good to stay there the first month. I was REALLY young and innocent and needed the protection of a home, even though their life style was so far from my own. The few previous months in Paris I had created my first own home and had a very creative life…The photographer here is Bill King. We were friends and had spent some holidays together on the island of Capri in Italy, together with his assistant Jessica who was also my friend. He had such a great humor and I liked him a lot! He was one of the friends in the fashion world who died of aids a few years later…

Jag bara längtar efter att skriva på svenska men har så många läsare utomlands…provar det  här med engelskan ett tag! Det blir lite staplande då jag skriver om dåtid, vartefter minnen kommer upp så finns det så mycket att berätta och jag känner mig lite osäker på hur mycket jag ska skriva här…och vad dåtiden har att berätta som känns viktigt på riktigt!?  Jag har inte riktigt hittat det än!
