This sister in Stockholm did what the industry thought she couldn’t.
When I tried to get into Stockholm Fashion Week my emails were never returned. It was then that I decided to build something on my own that would give other designers like me the chance to show their work. — Sonja Andersson
Stockholm City Hall Cat Walk.
As a compliment to the cat walk giving talented and up and coming designers amazing exposure, Sonja included an award ceremony at Vau De Ville restaurant. The winners are the models Isabell, Janek, Djibril, and Fatima; and designers Ruslan Khvastov, Karima Alaoui, and Iracema Matias.

I Could Not Be More Proud
Not even if I had conceived and executed this event myself. I don’t know what you’ve heard, but Stockholm is not an easy town to conquer and Sonja put the nay sayers to shame. She booked the most prestigious venue in the City and probably all of Sweden.
She invited fabulous designers and they came. And they showed out. The models worked it. Sonja started something for designers like herself that no longer can be doubted. This will work. This worked. This is why I am so proud of Sonja. Whoot whoot!
