Patrik Soderstam – one of the designers participating in the NOOVO fashion/photography festival 1-4 November in Santiago de Compostela

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I am co-curating a fashion and photography festival in
beautiful Santiago de Compostela. Charo Gonzalez and Jorge
from NOOVO Magazine in Spain are the founders of the event. I asked designer Patrik Soderstam to send me an image of his work and a personal statement for the catalogue. I thought that I would share it with you.

A statement from the designer:

The projects Patrik does for himself are not about running a business, making money or pleasing the customer. The work is about his need to express himself in a progressive way. This is done through clothing
