Fashionista

Fashionista is the book on everybody´s lips in Sweden right now. It´s written by Martina Bonnier who is senior fashion editor ( modechef ) at Sweden´s largest fashion magazine, there Susanne Ljung used to work too. The book will be published on thursday but the hounting has started. Martina likes clothes, she buy designer clothes and has 8 closets with these. She never buy copies of clothes and she looks at clothes as investments. She talks about basics and designer signature garments. She writes in the book that her family used to own Stilmönster that later has emerged with Neue Mode and together with Burda are our largerst patternmakers today. The Bonnier family owns a lot of things, it´s a well known name in this country. She is one of few who has access to all the fashionhouses and visit all the fashion shows. This girl knows fashion, she talkes about learning to appriciate the workmanship in these clothes and the importance of maintaining your clothes AND your shoes. She´s also beautiful and wears a size 34 that should be 8 maybe, so of course it´s OK to dislike her and be grateful that at least she´s not tall....
