Grazia was in Sweden this week to see the wares of our Nordic friends at Stockholm Fashion Week. As ever there was talent a go go, but one collection that stuck out was Carin Wester, a Beckham's School graduate, who started her own label in 2003 after working for several seasons designing for the brand ‘Paul & Friends'. Carin Wester's A/W 09-10 collection is full of rocky attitude- key pieces include sexy suede and leather trousers and tight shouldered tuxedo jackets, not to mention the most incredible buckled wedge boots which came striding down the catwalk with zips undone. Some fabulous cocktail dresses also featured in brightly coloured rich velvets; complete with clever detailing like ruffle belts and mini fishtails....it's the kind of collection you just can't wait to wear. For UK stockists and to see more from Carin Wester, check out her website... see you in the queue ladies.
