One of my favorite blogs at the moment – by Didem. Stylish, classy, modern and pretty. And she loves Chanel. And of course she is absolutely beautiful. Didem has a very diverse style: at times edgy, at time feminine, at times sporty, at times girly – thus, I could not make only one illustration. And I did three:
- Edgy with purple fringes
- Romantic with flowercrown and Chanel clutch
- A couture black Chanel evening look
What do you think?

Yesterday I attended a charity fashion show arranged by Mannerheim League for Child Welfare (Mannerheimin Lastensuojeluliitto , MLL UP 2016 Hyväntekeväisyysmuotinäytös). The event was spectacular: fashion, music, gifts, collaborations… all for a good cause. MLL organization is doing incredible work for the welfare of children and families: it works to promote health and a good environment for children for instance by providing various services. The fashion show was organized by the collaboration partners on a volunteer basis. Celebrities and politicians walked down the runway. Boutiques and Finnish fashion brands showcased their collections.
I was happy and very honoured to contribute by giving my 2 newest paintings for the lottery. Two lucky winners went home with new paitings. Here they are:

The fashion show:

My favourite collection of the show was probably Gemmy Furs (showroom pic via FB page). beautiful Leena Harkimo, Heidi Sohlberg, Anitra Ahtola wore fabulous fluffy fox fur coats. I think I am in love with the pink – mint green -pastel candy one:
One of the brightest stars of the show was definitely Mr. Bruce Oreck, former US Ambassador to Finland, who walked down the runway with a dog!
Naturally the dog ran away and passed right in front of us in the first row!
All in all, it was a splendid event!
