I woke up this morning wondering where the time has gone! It`s been three month now since Fashion Week in Stockholm…and this video was ready just one week after the shows…I have no reason really for not showing it at once except I wanted to add something about every person or designer that is in the video and also share the personal pictures I made during this time. It turned out to be too big an ambition for me so…NOW is the time to share this short film that my very talented friend Leo V Aadland made with the assistance of his twin sister Desideria. Leo and I met through the social media Instagram @leovaadland and became friends…his photos and also his very open, honest and vulnerable texts touched my heart. Then he came to Stockholm to visit together with a friend of his. The feeling I`d had from meeting him on Instagram got confirmed and our friendship deepened. I feel there are so many, especially young people out there who need to hear his words and dare to be as honest as he is about his feelings. There is always an open gate for Love to enter when we share our deepest heart. Always. Leo and Desi stayed with me during Fashion Week and then went back to school in Gothenburg. I had the best of time together with them. Fashion Week is like a great moment of Creative Art where everyone is sharing the result of their hard intense work during the last six months and I´m very grateful to be invited to share it, see the shows, meet the wonderful people. Fashion week is also so much more than fashion. It´s a platform for many meetings. The woman I met sitting on the street brought me to tears. She was singing straight out from her heart with the most incredible voice. All I did right then was to buy her some sweet cakes and spend a moment fully appreciating her. I wish I´d done so much more. She was not a beggar. She was a giver. I went back to find her and she was gone. Every moment is a moment gone so let´s care for our most precious moments. I had mine with Leo and Desi here so enjoy this movie by them. It`s made with much Love and integrity.
