As everyone know by now, or at least those who read metro, been online since yesterday, watched the Channel 1 news or read Expressen, Carin Wester was the Swedish designer who was awarded Guldknappen 2009. This is why: "The woman is sharp and the man romantic. This year´s winner of Guldknappen push traditional limits with her design, which has given her a big group of fans early in her career. Now she´s ready to take the next fashion step with creativity a well formulated business plan, new vision and above all a coherent autumn collcetion- so very right in time. Carin Wester is a good representer for the Swedish expression, that´s why she get´s Guldknappen".

The other ones who where nominated were: Dagmar, Diana Orving, Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair, Hunkydory and Whyred.

I felt that Wester was well worth the price. The autumn collection is really fantastic, like made up for romantic darkening nights that possibly will end up in a decadent club as well as it fits for people playing chess and having a glass of brandy. Beautiful people playing chess off course.

Carin Wester´s collections consists out of a female line "Carin Wester" and the male line "Wester" and the limited and handmade line "W".

The a/ w 09 collection was in colours of beige, grey, white, black with different shades of purple and yellow as contrast. The "Wester" line is romantic- knitted sweaters and crispy shirts tucked in the pants. The boots and scarves add a rock n´roll attitude. A little tip for every boy out there is to Wear a suit with no shirt underneath and insted have a wide scarve. Really really nice.

The most startling pieces for the girls I found being the purple and yellow ruched velvet dresses. And I want to get my little paws on those furlined wedge boots.

And it´s not just the collection that is very nice, Wester is a beauty herself. I find the reason she gave for not showing the s/s fashion show in Stockholm and instead Copenhagen realistic. It´s too early to show spring fashion then. Something needs to be changed.
