Earlier this year, Shanghaihabits teamed up with a good friend, Gitte Soee, for a photo shoot around some of the most beautiful spots in Shanghai. Some spots that makes you forget that you are actually in one of the biggest and most populous cities in the world and some spots that takes your breath away because of the magnificence of the New York of China.
The purpose with the photoshoot had nothing to do with Shanghaihabits. Or in some ways it had but it was done to showcase Gitte Soee’s new jewellery collection: Devotion.
Positive Vibes & Inner Beauty
Gitte asked me to be the model showcasing her new collection as well as be her partner in finding those special spots around Shanghai. Knowing that I’m not a model or picture-perfect, Gitte wanted to use me for her new collection because of the positive energy she says I radiate. Perfect for her new collection Devotion, inspired by the inner eye: A Dedication to Inner Beauty.
I was super happy to showcase the beautiful collection and standing in front of the camera does not frighten me. Especially not with the purpose of capturing happiness, inner beauty and balance - at my favorite Shanghai spots. The link to Shanghaihabits comes from the fact that these attributes are some of the thoughts behind Shanghaihabits: Positive vibes, sharing & caring!
Now, I’m not really a big consumer but the Gitte Soee is a brand after my heart. It's made with intentions of creating ethical jewellery of high quality. Jewellery you don’t consume and throw away but jewellery you “recycle” in the sense that after you, someone will else will inhere them. Such a good philosophy, that in my opinion, more consumer items should have. Quality over quantity and less cheap consumerism. Apart from that I'm super inspired by Gitte's entrepreneur spirit... Don't we all just dream about doing our own thing, opening our own cafe, starting our own brand? I know I do. Create, share, inspire...
