Being a huge fan of Scandinavian fashion, meeting the Finnish born fashion designer Camilla Norrback while in Sweden, had a great importance to me. Her brand has been a pioneer in "ecoloxury", a term that has been widely used but in fact, originated from her. In Camilla's words "ecoluxury is modern luxury with an ecological point of view"; most of her clothes are produced from environmentally friendly, renewable raw materials. A good example were buttery soft leggings which I would have never guessed being made of recycled PET bottles. How can something so rough and ugly turn into something so comfortable and pretty?

While visiting her boutique, Camilla promised us a -25% discount from her collection. I obviously couldn't leave empty handed, and this Art deco/80's inspired dress was mine to keep. According to Camilla, her clothes make the wearer feel both beautiful and proud which with, I have to agree. I wore the dress to Saturday night's indie club feeling both beautiful and proud; not only had I bought an amazing dress but it was also a very wise purchase.
The button of the dress is made from the finest quality leather and in a Swedish factory that also manufactures the leather straps of Louis Vuitton bags. How cool is that?
