From March 2017 Cia Jansson (ELLE), Peter Andersson (PAP Studio) Philip Warkander (PhD Fashion Studies, Lund University) Maria Sandow (Swedish Trade Federation) and Emma Ohlson (Association of Swedish Fashion Brads) will form the newly established Swedish Fashion Talents Advisory Board. "The members of our Advisory Board contributes with unrivaled expertise in fashion, marketing, business development and trade. Their competence and industry experience are invaluable to the program and will help the Swedish Fashion Council to continue the visionary development of the Swedish Fashion Talents, "says Erica Blomberg, project manager. 
Last year we undertook many changes in the Swedish Fashion Talents program. A new management team came onboard and the participants were divided into two categories, fashion and accessories. Swedish Fashion Council also expanded the program within the business promotion activities. Participants now receive expert guidance from their own consultants through the Fashion Business Academy and a spot in the competence development platform YumpAcademy. A new innovation award, "Swedish Fashion Council Changers Award", was instituted with the aim of highlighting the brand that has contributed to the industry's development through a particularly strong ability to innovate, shake up and add new force to the industry. It can for example be presented in a strong creative ability that challenged contemporary conventions and standards. 
Swedish Fashion Talents is Sweden's leading talent programs and has shown great importance for the growth of new fashion brands today. During Fashion Week Stockholm AW17 this last January 26 designers showed their collections, 14 of these brands had a direct link to the program. 
Members of the new SFT Advisory Board:
Cia Jansson: Editor-in-Chief at ELLE Sweden 
Peter Andersson: Founder and owner of PAP Studio, Sweden’s leading production company within the fashion industry 
Philip Warkander: The very first to hold a PhD in Fashion Studies 
Maria Sandow: Head of Swedish Trade Federation and an expert on sustainable trade 
Emma Ohlson: Secretary General for Association
  • Q&A with Maj-La Pizelli, co-founder and CD at ATP Atelier.
-Together with Natalia Altewai from acclaimed Swedish designerduo AltewaiSaome you have created a collection of bags in five different styles.
Q:Why is this collection so special?
A: It's ATP Atelier's first collaboration. But also because the entire collection is made out of vegetable tanned leather.
Q:Why have you chosen to do this now?
A:ATP celebrates five years this year. This collection of bags symbolizes our roots perfectly.
Q:Why is sustainable fashion important to you?
A:Sustainability is everything. We want to create collections that are sustainable both in materials and design.
Q:What's the difference between working with your other materials and vegetable tanned leather?
A:75% of our collections are made of vegetable leather from day one, so we are used to that. The leather gets an unique feel to it and patina.
Q:What's your own favorite in the collection?
A:The tote "Pienza"! Beautiful and useful.
