A while back I was contacted by knitting designer Linda Marveng concerning lending out some jewelry for a photoshoot with her designs. Since I know how much work it is organizing a photoshoot I was over the moon, and especially after seeing the great results. Lots of Norwegian designers were involved, and I am so grateful this this sharing community of designers I am part of. Big thanks to Linda Marveng for taking the trouble of hunting down all of us, and i really find the designs suiting each other, from the shoes by Monica Stålvang, buttons by Siri Berrefjord to the dresses by Judith Bech.
They were supposed to be outside that day, but because of dreadful weather the took refue in one of my all-time favourite restaurants; Hvalstrand bad. -A retro pearl of a location which has been renovated some years ago, and is now back to its former glory. So thanks to the weather, you get to know this hidden treasure instead.
The photoshoot was organized by the magazine Made by me, but which has now changed name to Familien Trend. I am seriously considering taking up knitting again after seeing these designs..
