Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Värmland. The bride wore a gown by the Swedish designer, Ida Sjöstedt and a new tiara.
The dress is made from silk crepe overlaid with Italian silk organza.
Couture lace made by José María Ruiz was applied to the dress and the
train was hand-cut and then hand-stitched in Ida Sjöstedt’s atelier in
The veil in thin bridal tulle was also hand-embroidered with sheer cotton lace.
The bride’s hair and make-up were by Marwan Hitti and William Värnild.
During the past year, what has been your strongest cultural experience?
“I’ve really grown fond of the easiness of Haruki Murakamis work. There is a smoothness of words building simple yet extraordinary settings. Add the sureal elements surrounding some of the characters and the mind quite often wanders to The master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov. It’s been a wonderful world to be a part of.”
