Fashion Rocks Stockholm

As some of you might now, it's currently Fashion Week in Stockholm. I had the misfortune of planning poorly, and scheduling my flight back to New York the morning that it started, meaning that I missed the Odeur show that my friend Gorjan worked so hard on. Still, I did get a chance to stop by Fashion Rocks Stockholm last Thursday at Berns, which featured eight runway shows of the AW 2009 collections, paired with eight performances by accompanying bands. Although I had seen most of my favorite collections online already, it was awesome to see them in person. Ida Sjostedt's sequined covered collection was paired with pop-punk band Revl9n, and Ivana Helsinki's show was accompanied by the incredibly catchy singer songwriter Veronica Maggio. One of the highlights was getting to see the Carrie-inspired Ann-Sofie Back show, which was perfectly paired with Swedish pop-star September, who was dressed in full on zombie attire, with a group of models doing Thriller-styled dance moves in the background.

We were lucky enough to be put on the guestlist by our friend Linus, who works for menswear line Nikolaj d'Etoiles, and who organized their presentation for the event. We also ran into Susanne from W29 Showroom, who was their to support Dagmar. I walked away with an awesome goodybag gift---a Lady Gaga style headband, which I will have to photograph later. Of course, this was the one day that I forgot my camera, but I managed to scrounge up these pictures from the night.
