Sweden has always been more well-known than Finland and for several reasons. For first Finland doesn’t have the same kind of relationships to other countries ( big ones, like France, UK, Italy etc. ) because it isn’t as old as they are. As a second reason I guess I could name the Nobel prize which has it’s gala at Sweden and gathers people ( and celebrities) from all over the world. Sure it’s not the Oscars, But way more than nothing.
As a third reason that I could name for you is the shyness of Finnish people, in here it’s considered as a flaunt if you think too much about yourself or consider yourself as a good.
At the moment Sweden is having few moments – again.
Paris Hilton was dating Swedish model Alex Vaggo ( who didn’t even have any modeling jobs before her, just delivering pizzas
Giancarlo Ferré’s new designer is Swedish Lars Nilsson
And Swedish model Matilda S, 17 years, is getting her career on the highway.
Finland isn’t doing that bad either.
IVANAhelsinki had the honour to be the first Finnish fashion house to get it’s fashion show to Paris fashion week. Interview here.
And of course we have Suvi Koponen.
So I’m here back in business and hoping that the rhythm will get back to normal as soon as possible.
