Featured Fashionista: Barbro Cathrin Andersen

1. What does fashion mean to you?
Fashion is of course really important to me. It's the way I choose to express myself every day, and what gets me out of bed in the morning, so to speak. It's difficult to explain something that just naturally is such a big part of my life, simply because it doesn't need any explanation to me personally. Fashion is a huge concept, and different things to different people; but for me it's just the thing that makes me happy.

2. What style dress would be good to wear?
I love dresses! I don't have one favorite type, but right now I'm really into lace-details, sheer-fabrics and pale colors - despite my overall love for black. In general, I prefer dresses with defined waists; whether they are short or long, tight or over-sized. I have about 100 different dresses in my closet, and that pretty much explains it all. When it comes to personal style; I'm really into crashing different elements together and the art of texture is really important to me. I absolutely adore knits, and couldn't imagine life without it. Another important aspect of my personal style is shorts. High-waisted, leather, my own knitted ones. I love it!

3. What brand of shoes you buy?
I don't like to spend hundreds of dollars on shoes, but if I find something I really like I'll splurge - but only after thinking about it for some time. I try not to buy things on impulse, mostly because I can't afford it; and the type of shoes I buy generally have the price of $20-$50. What brand they are isn't that important to me, but I have a lot of shoes from JSFN, DinSko and DNA.

4. Who are some of your favorite designers?
I'm a big fan of black and grays, and designer like the wonderful Alexander McQueen and Balmain really appeal to me. Since I live in Scandinavia, I'm naturally a big fan of Acne and I really support Norwegian designers such as Fam Irvoll, Flinga, Iis of Norway, Kristar Design, The White Baron, Undorn, Vatle and Venti Uno.
