SPOTDING CLOSET #10 TATIANA ANDERSEN CAMRE
I’m so happy to tell you that I have some very cool new Spotding Closet Films lined up for you. Today I will share the 10th Spotding Closet in my series of films, which is something that I have been passionate about ever since I started blogging in 2009. The concept is much more shaped now, but pretty much the same ” inspiring womens’ closets from around the world”. I have created a little production team who help me put these fashion stories together and that makes things a lot more easy. I’m surrounded by so many talented and beautiful women from many different nationalities and backgrounds. I love creating these personal fashion films and get to know their stories. I am too curious to stop doing this, it’s pure passion!
This Spotding Closet Film features Danish designer Tatiana Andersen Camre, whom I contacted because I think she is an interesting character and a talented designer. I have been to her home and design studio in East London, Dalston. I hope you are as excited to see this as I am. Enjoy!
