photography by Ana Kras for dreamandawake


dreamandawake is a Swedish vintage shop stocking vintage dresses from around the world. The dresses are redesigned, refined and transformed into a new unique garment. Each dress is a forgotten beauty, standing strong and ready to find its new owner.

They also have an ongoing collaboration with RedCross in Sweden to refashion and produce eco-friendly dresses locally. Wow!

oh and if that's not enough ...they released a dreamandawake book featuring the dresses and photography by my favourite Swedish photographer Lina Scheynius. I think I'm going to have to get a copy!!


PS. this post turned out to be really long...
