Last week I went to a local museum to see a travelling exhibition with some of our famous designers’ clothes made for Swedish artists and singers.
Katarina de Bourg made the clothes for our young Japan export – Yohio. His androgynous style is not as popular here as in Japan, where he is a big star. He is greatly influenced by the Japanese genre visual kei.
Yohio participated in Eurovision Song Contest 2013 and 2014.
Another colourful group is Army of Lovers, with their almost Arabian Nights – style.
Camilla Thulin is renowned for having designed all of Army of Lovers‘ outfits.
A much loved artist and singer from up north, Roger Pontare, is of Sami origin. He has represented Sweden twice in Eurovision Song Contest.
Sarah Mårskog successfully designed his shaman- inspired clothes.
Altogether an inspiring exhibition, where I picked some of my favourites for you. I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did.
