I was contacted a little while ago asked whether I would lend some of my jewelry to a photoshoot with Leila Hafzi´s new pret-a-porter collection for her new popupstore at Steen og Strøm in Oslo, which opens the 20.11. Of course I would!
Leila is famous for amazing photoshoots with extremely talented people. This time she used :
Model photo : Dag Knudsen
Hair: Barbro Sørlien / Billy's Bumble and bumble
Makeup : Sølvi Strifeldt / www.strifeldt.net
Model : Veronica Andersson / Heartbreak Oslo
Jewellery: KGD-kaja gjedebo design
First time I met Leila we were both pretty new designers trying to sell our designs at an outdoor sunday market at Blå. She was one of the few who liked some of my more untraditional designs, and I remember trading them for a wonderful green woolen sweater. Next time I heard of her her dresses were on the red carpet all over Hollywood!
I am so proud that a Norwegian designer was one of the first to start working with the ethical and ecological aspects of the clothes industry. Leila does a fantastic job, and now you can buy these amazing designs for a short period of time at Steen og Strøm.
