I was wearing for The first Time my New Gudrun outfit! And I felt So pretty, calm and confident... my Gudrun outfit sent good and positive vibes and my appointment went very very well!!! Thank you Gudrun Sjödèn! You reveal the High potential that each woman own inside herself... Happy 40th Anniversary!
The rest of the winners:
We love your clothes and so decided to wear them for our Quaker wedding last year on 24 October.
We were the first same sex couple to get married in our Meeting House, so there was a full house to celebrate with us. Most people made cakes instead of giving gifts, and my daughter made us a vegan wedding cake. The little film below shows our friends singing a tribute song, and us looking rather amazed!
We wore the same design top, but different colours and styles of trousers. I will be wearing mine again this weekend, when we celebrate our anniversary.
Congratulations on 40 years!
Catherine Cook (UK, near Oxford)
I am a teacher of the arts, travelling to schools throughout the UK. In 2008 I received a most unexpected booking – a request to run some art courses in the UAE for teachers and trainees. I needed to pack something light, cool, which had good coverage, reflected my passion for well-cut textiles and original design, and which gave a clear message that I was a professional artist with impeccable taste and style. It also had to be practical enough to move easily in and teach in, and easily washable after a hands-on art session. So naturally I reached for my much-loved top and trousers from Gudrun, which I love in every way! Attached is the very first picture of me outside Al Ain Women’s College, ready to meet my lovely students. I still have the outfit and love it even more now as it reminds me of that wonderful teaching opportunity.
My finest memory and the start of my love story with Gudrun’s clothes:
It was the year of 1985. I was 13 years old - that’s me on the right. My cousin and I were going with her mum to the ANC Gala. It was a big deal! As well as all the Swedish artists that I would get to see and already loved, I was also crazy about Boy George. I got styled up in my aunty’s stripy Gudrun clothes and Boy George was my role model. I was probably the coolest 13-year-old at the ANC Gala... possibly the only 13-year-old! (My cousin was 12). It was there and then that I decided to become a “Gudrun Woman”, like my aunty, when I got older. At the age of about 35, I decided the time had come. I felt fully prepared to undergo the transformation from a girl dressed head-to-toe in black to a brilliantly colourful Gudrun woman. I bought my first Gudrun outfit and was totally smitten. Today, ten years later, my wardrobe is full of colour, happiness and love. Thank you for this, Gudrun! ❤
