I had the honor to be host, with Sofia, at a magical fashion show in Stockholm City Hall.
It was a like a seeing a fashion journey from around the world.
Scandinavian International Fashion Week aims at showcasing the art of fashion designers from all around the globe. During 2 days, the catwalk is open to innovative designers and brands, who stage their upcoming collections to press, buyers and influencers from across the globe. The catwalk also welcomes new talents, as we believe in opportunities and understand that everything starts with a dream.
Held at the Stockholm City Hall, the event starts with 2 catwalk days, followed by a price ceremony on the third day. The idea is to recognize the work of the most outstanding fashion actors, such as designers, make-up artists and models, at the most prominent prize venue in Stockholm: the Stockholm City Hall.

Often I am asked: “is it hard to write a book?”
My answer is always the same: “It’s like running a marathon, you only have to take the first step and start running.”
Now that I’m updating 70.000 words in my “ONE” book, I realize that I ran an extremely long marathon. Normally a business book is about 20.000 words.
Being a dyslectic author, I did not see the “goal” sign, instead, I believe I read “start”, and ran the marathon 3 times more than needed.
In many ways, I found it funny that I did not see where to stop running. Yet has my ONE book, in its shape, become a historical documentation of consumer power in the start of social media? (The first edition came out 2006).
It will take all summer for me to update the 70.000 words, but this time, I WILL see the “goal” sign, and STOP long before 100.000 words….I hope.
