Top to toe in wool: The quintessential outfit for autumn.
And those plaid socks just screams “autumn”, don´t they?

Everyting looked very natural. My uniform for Marrakech quickly became a pair of old khaki shorts combined with a simple t-shirt or shirt. We were told not to dress up going to the markets as the salesmen would only give us a higher starting price whenever we´d say “how much?” And trust me, you get tired of bargaining on top of all the: “it´s free to look” and “good price for you, my friend.” This particlar day the combo fell on somehting in between t-shirt and shirt on the top. A sort of woven tee with raw edges. .. Which soom will be packed away because the thermostat is below zero degrees any day now. #visitnorway?

I just spent eight days in Marrakech. A city I´ve always wanted to visit which very much lived up to my ecpectations. Filled with vibrant markets, loads of people, the Minarets (calling for prayers), warm colors and scents. Marrakech was most of all new in a very old fashioned way. Next time: go trekking in the Atlas mountains and sleep in the Saharah desert.

UP [øpp] is a platform used to showcase Norwegian up and coming designers. The focus is on the innovative and artistic in fashion design. On Tuesday it was held for the third time, and as expected, it did not disappoint. This season, six talented designers showed their collections at the old margarine factory in Tøyen, Oslo. The catwalk was in the shape of a maze with many semi-see-thru walls and the models appeared from unexpected parts of the installation. Some keywords for the shows were: nordic, creative, raw, minimalistic/maximalistic, young & beautiful. I´m already looking forward to UP part.4.
Designers in pictorial order: Karoline Bakken Lund, Anne Karine Thorbjørnsen, Peter Schamaun, Elisabeth Stray Pedersen, Raske Rever, Jone Nielsen.
