Stockholm Fashion Week: Day 1
Long time no see, I suppose I should say. This last month has been super crazy and busy, that I just have not found the time to sit down and produce blog-content that I will be happy about. Just one week after I started on my fourth semester at the University, I sat myself on a plane heading to Stockholm for Fashion Week. It is my first time attending any fashion week outside of Norway, so it was really a huge jump for me. Not only did it take a lot of e-mailing back and forth to get into any shows, but it also needed a lot of planning hence why I did not manage to blog very often in January.
I was in Stockholm from the 21st of January to the 23rd. We arrived early in the morning to be able to catch the first opening shows. On the photo above, you can see me and Nnennas airport outfits. We decided to stay super comfy and casual, both wearing big warm jackets, super cozy pants and sneakers.
Wearing: Isabel Marant coat, Diemme long sleeve, Second Female pants, MSGM via Zalando sneakers and ATP Atelier bucket bag.
We checked in at Comfort Hotel Xpress Stockholm (Sponsored stay), which is perfect if you want a cheap but also a central hotel in Stockholm. During fashion weeks, we do not really spend any time at the hotel, because there is always something happening, so we only need a place to change clothing and sleep.

Started the day of at the Beckmans College of Design show, which was students showing their work. I think it is really interesting to see new and upcoming designers display their work, however I feel like for most design students these days it has become harder and harder to stand out from the crowd, and that really impacts their design. Instead of making something wearable, its all about making crazy and extravagant pieces that no-one can possibly wear. Hopefully these students made what they really wanted to make. The next show I went to was Johannes Adele and after that we visited the Glitter lounge at Grand Hotel, which was the most gorgeous suite with pink floors and cute jewelry all around.

On this day, we had brunch at Riche, which is the perfect spot to sit down in between shows. I have written about Riche in my "An Instagrammes Guide to: Stockholm" previously. I went for the eggs benedict, which tasted really delicious. After a rather quick lunch, we had to hurry back to the Grand Hotel where most of the shows were held, to watch Newhouse, followed by Busnel before heading to the Filippa K show. Ended the day at Max hamburger, because you know... it's fashion week haha.
