Who is Cecilia Rosell?
I was born and raised in Sweden. In a small, small town called Mora
in the heart of the country. Sweden is not Switzerland. We speak
Swedish and we do not understand German easily. Sweden export some
seriously great music and cool movies, like Fever Ray, Robyn,
Let the right one in,The girl with the dragoon tattoo and labels
like Cheap Monday, Acne, Fjällräven,The Local firm and more.
When I grew up, there wasn't very much to do in Mora unless you were
a big fan of hockey, skiing or other sports.
So I had an Icelandic horse named Tor. We used to take long trips
together in the beautiful forests around Mora. Summertime or
wintertime - it was always peaceful and magic. Even when it rained.
Like the tones of THIS.
When I grew older, I spended more time studying and dancing.
I danced Streetdance/Hip hop for about 4 years, and believe me,
I was such a thug fo' real and I was really good at it too. When
I had a good day, I could look like this chick with the same big,
curly hair and hardcore moves. Those years was more to the tones of
At the same time as I started my hip hopping, age 16, I also started
to work as a guide at the house of Zorn. That embraced more of the
old culture of Mora,peasant times and art.
I studied culture and society at the St.Mikael college in Mora.
Then I studied fashion and texture for a year at Skeriol collage.
At the age of 19 I met my significant half in one of the 2 bars in
Mora. It was love at first sight and we moved together in a caravan
from the 60's that we took to music festivals and did some trips
with. I lived the hippie life in my own hometown.
When I was done working as a guide in August 2009, we decided to
move to Italy and visit Maurizio's father in Jesi. After a month,
the Montreal engineering company he works for, wanted to transfer
him there instead. We lived in Montreal for 4 months and then we
moved to Tunisia for 3 since Maurizio has got a project there. You
can see my amazing pictures from Tunisia here at my blog.
I'm still stationed in Montreal and I'm working in the best
vintage clothing store in town: ERA Vintage Wear. ERA is owned by
fabulous Elaine Leveille and she introduced me to the small circle
of fashion people in Montreal. So for the moment, I'm enjoying the
big city life with launch parties for fashion magazines, clubs,
Montreal fashion week and more.
I'm a very creative spirit so I might possibly positive post stuff I
