So, some reflections of Fashion Week Stockholm SS18.
Another Fashion Week has come and gone. And as always when these three hectic days come to an end, you are quite exhausted and your bed or sofa becomes your best friend for a day or two. It is then you also get a chance to properly reflect on what you actually got to see.
In the moment, when you are at a show, waiting for the models to come down the runway your mind is often set on being “wowed”. It is first afterward when the dust has settled you actually can appreciate and contemplate on the details and meanings that have been presented.
So now, when the dust actually has settled. What is our perception of the last days?
Well, as you know, when looking at the fashion industry just as a part of the wheel of the consumption it’s a bit of a sad story. That’s why it is so important to use the industry as a cultural zone for expression and where conventions and prevailing norms can be questioned. And I’m glad to say that the Swedish fashion scene is one of the better ones at doing this.
This season we could find at least four reoccurring themes that challenged some kind of conservative norms.
Although, as per usual, the models at fashion week were mainly blond and skinny we could see some variations in ethnicity, age and body type. People are beautiful and we want to see more.
