|One food baby and one real baby|
On sunday we visited art museum Artipelag, witch is not far from where I live. There was an exhibition about Lars Wallin´s fashion stories. He is a well known Swedish fashion designer who has tailored exclusive evening dresses for private clients into different evenings, galas, banquets and even to the stage of Royal Opera. The exhibition was a peek into Lars´ sketches, process, samples and inspiration. It was a perfect agenda for me and Jemina because our history together was the starting point into my fashion/textile career. When we were kids, maybe twelve years old we started our own business, dressmakers shop called Pakitus. Pakitus means sewing backward. I think the name symbolized that we were not that good dressmakers in the beginning. It was a game in the first place, but little by little we got better and we grew our business. We were running Pakitus through junior high school and high school so all together six years. We made all kind of custom made clothes in a small room in Jemina´s parents house and listened Electric Light Orchestra all day long while sewing. We also made three fashion shows that we presented at schools spring and christmas festivals.
