  1. Åh, vad underbart fint att du har gått och blivit med blogg. Haha jag ÄLSKAR huvudbilden! Hoppas att allt är bra med dig annars. Jag och Jonas är i Shanghai, vet inte om du visste det. Han pluggar kinesiska och jag målar, passar mig som handen i handsken. Jag har faktiskt också en blogg, men inte lika fin som din.

  2. Hej!
    Så väldigt trevligt att hitta till dig! Underbart rakt igenom, dina bilder, ämnet, allt. Så gediget. Jag lägger dig till min lista av inspiration! Jag är fascinerad av just folklore som grund till kläder av idag, den nordiska vackra naturen och arbetar med att göra mig en kollektion med just den utgångspunkten.
    Jag ser fram mot att se mer av din produktion.

    I’m wondering if the book is being offered in English. I’d love to be able to read the stories and understand where the photos are from.

    Fina bilder måste jag säga.
    Jag hoppas att boken finns hos min lokala bokhandlare, då ska jag köpa den direkt. Det ska bli intressant läsning under hösten.

    Howcome there isn´t anything from Finlands folkore?
    Scandinavian and Nordic should be more countries than S and N.

    • In the third book there will be folk costumes from Finland thanks to Föreningen Brage in Helsingfors. In order to take photos we need people that has costumes and wants to cooperate and it has not happen until now.

  6. Dear Laila,
    I’m completely bowled over by your beautiful website! Gorgeous costumes, gorgeous photography; I’m very impressed by your high standards. I would love to share your exciting work on my tumblr (I’m giving its archive url so you can see it all at once): Will you allow me to post your photos there? I’m sure they would get an enthusiastic response – and perhaps some book sales, too.
    Thank you for your amazing work.

    I have both books so far and looking forward to the new one on brides!
    They are just gorgeous.
    Do you think you might make a Calendar with some of the scenes in them?
    Thank you for all your hard work on these books.


    • Thank you Sonja, I am so glad you like the books. Right now I am too busy with three books in production so there will not be a calendar this year. All the best! //Laila

    I would like to ask whether I would be allowed to use some of your beautiful photos in my fashion design portfolio at the university. I’m designing a national costume for women partly Norwegian, partly Finnish and I would need some photos to refer to in my history of bunads and gakties section. The name of the photographer will of course be listed in the sources.

    I am a big fan of your blogg :)


    • Hi Anna. Yes you may use some of the photos om the blog for your work. Always write my name as a potographer. //Laila Duran

  11. Hi,
    I LOVE your blog and would really like to work together. Could I interest you in writing a guest blog post about Scandinavian folklore and its impact on high street fashion for my blog?

    • Hi Ina. Yes I could do that. Right now I am travelling doing the last shoots for my third book so please get back to me in two months. Then I will have more time. Regards Laila

  12. Hey Laila,
    Coming back, if we have more time now, I would still love to do a feature on my blog about your work. :)
