Be one of the first to step inside Gudrun Sjödén’s colourful universe at the American Swedish Institute during this lively exhibition preview party! The Gudrun Sjödén A Colourful Universe exhibition celebrates the work of the globally acclaimed Swedish fashion designer and entrepreneur. Osher Gallery and many rooms in the Turnblad Mansion will be transformed into Gudrun's universe by using her designs to tell her story. A live fashion show during First Look will offer guests a preview of her fall clothing collection inspired by the forest, Swedish and other global motifs. There will be live music on the outdoor stage and themed food and beverages available for purchase. 

First Look highlights:

  • Watch a fashion show with music from the Anonymous Choir and organized with assistance by local innovator Sarah Edwards
  • Hear Gudrun's talk with moderator/journalist Sofia Hedstrom
  • Enjoy FIKA's special party menu 

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and event runs from 7-10 p.m.
