Now in Stockholm, Sweden, I took the opportunity to visit the Northern Women in Chanel exhibition by photographer Peter Farago and stylist Ingela Klementz-Farago. In 2010 Farago, in close co-operation with Chanel, was given the opportunity to choose among collections from 1920 up until today. The result is presented as a coffeetable book and this exhibition.
The pictures were inspired by opera, dance, art and with that created a unique universe where every picture becomes a fashion fairy tale.
Together with famous, iconic models from Scandinavia and the Baltic countries, the photos feature Chanel classics as well as contemporary fashion composed in the Nordic light. “It was a fashion journey”, says stylist Ingela Klemetz-Farago of the epic art project she recently completed with her husband, photographer Peter Farago.
