Finally, I am able to show you a sneak peek of my book ‘To rett en vrang. Designstrikk’ available in Norway from the 25th January. Professional make-up and hair styling was a priority for me since I wanted different looks to go with the garments. Here you can see the amazing result made by make-up artist Line Sekkingstad Sigberg, see also post on her dated December 2011. The stylist is yours truly since I have a too strong fashion opinion to allow anybody else to interfere with my knitwear designs. I love statement jewelry, especially chosen for its chic boldness, made by Monies, see www.monies.dk, on loan from one of my favourite shops in Oslo, Zenit in Skovveien at Frogner. And I also adore out-standing sculptural shoes from Camilla Skovgaard, see www.camillaskovgaard.com
