YOU ARE A BABE
MICHAELA MYHRBERG, ODALISQUE MAGAZINE
"My sister and I didn’t feel like there was a platform for us so we wanted to create something of our own. We started Odalisque Magazine about a year ago and the main focus is the visual beauty, which is why we don’t have so much writing at the moment. A lot of fashion magazines are really nice but they mix too much and it can become overly commercial -- we wanted to stay away from that.
"I went to art school in Finland and wanted a job where I could travel. So I decided to pick up hair and makeup. Working with hair is like sculpting and doing makeup is like painting. I moved to Stockholm and applied to work with Björn Axén, probably the best salon in Sweden. Björn said that I could take five models and film my styling then come in for an interview. So here I am this little girl from Finland walking around Kungsträdgården trying to find some models, I didn’t know anybody in Stockholm (laughs). So I dragged some girls down and did my video. The next day I went to see Björn and I got the job and got into his creative team. It’s been great fun we did all the shows in New York and I was working with the royal family.
ANN-SOFIE BACK ON BEAUTY
I headed to Stockholm Fashion Week to get the full story on Swedish beauty. Before heading behind the scenes of Ann-Sofie Back's Fall 2013 presentation, I visited the intellectual designer in her home.
