Bold and Beautiful Garments

Gudron Sjodén and her colorful universe!

For more than 40 years, one of Scandinavia's most unique designers and entrepreneurs has been creating whimsical fashion and spreading cheerful splashes of colour all over the fashion world. The American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis currently has an exhibit of part of her collection. This unique exhibition highlights some of her original creations, watercolors and archival materials. Can you guess which is my favourite ensemble?

Gudrun Sjödén (born 5 June 1941) is a Swedish fashion designer. 
Sjödén grew up in the village of Julita in Södermanland, and studied textile and fashion at Konstfack 1958-63. She is since 1961 married to photographer Björn Sjödén. Along with him she in 1976 opened her first eponymous fashion store in Stockholm at Regeringsgatan.[ The company has about one hundred employees and earns a quarter of a billion (SEK) a year.
In 2007 she received a medal from King Carl Gustaf of Sweden. (Credit: Wiki)



  1. Very clever designs. I've always had a thing for mixing patterns with the same theme like that black and white with stripes and dots and the turquoise set at the top.

  2. No idea which would be your favourite. Eye catching, though!

  3. Creative garments and photos!

  4. I vote for the top one. It has nice patterns and great shapes of fabric swirling around. I'd like to see it in motion!

  5. Very creative and eye catching.

  6. She is incredibly talented Kate.. I think the first outfit would look rather nice on me ☺

  7. i don't know fashion, but it looks nice

  8. Thankfully there is a enormous variety to choose from, since all people have different tastes
