I closed the shop after four years, and went on to study catering for a year! ...... Just felt like doing something completely different! I went to England in 1999 to work for six months, but fate kept me here, and I've been living in England for 13 years now! During this time I've worked in retail, which obviously helped to improve my English no end! I've been attending various medieval events, both in the UK and in Sweden. I've learnt a lot about medieval costume history from books, internet and from the events. But most of it is intuition! I've made numerous outfits for myself and friends and I'm always making up new gowns in my head. Along with this I've been making a lot of gothic style clothes for friends and family. Back in Sweden I made this amazing 17th century wedding gown for a friend, complete with corset and steel hoop underskirt! And I obviously made my own wedding gown! Since then I've had so many requests for similar gowns, the idea was born in 2007, and here we are!
So... the rest about me... I'm Swedish. Married to Martin, my soulmate.
