Fashion Show a la 1997

Lise Opening

In May of 1997 I had my very first Fashion Show hosted by American Scandinavian Foundation (ASFLA) on top of Mulholland Drive in Los Angeles, overlooking the whole city. That was an incredible feeling for a little naive Norwegian girl……straight from the boat. Boy was I in for a ride……

I found these photos way down in a box in our barn on my latest visit back home, and memories started flooding over. I can’t believe it’s been 17 years, and I am in awe of how much I still love designing knits, especially dresses and gowns……AND these way back when designs I can bring back to 2014 with a little reinvention!

Enjoy 1997
