Aldrigensam is an organisation that shed light to the taboo topic mental illness amongs young adults. The project started by Charlie Eriksson to contribute to a more open discussion about mental illness. Everyone gets effected by it, but not everyone are confident enough to talk about it. Through the campaing Care for style X Aldrigensam, G-Star offered styling tips from fashion people during a day in the store. 10% of the profit that day goes beneficial to the organisation "Aldrigensam". Viktor Frisk is an ambassador for "Aldrigensam" and was there to support Charlie and give people fashion tips.
I liked the vibe in the G-Star store, everyone was very friendly and welcoming. When Viktor saw me, he came over and greeted me with a hug. I don't know why, but one funny thing that happened was that he introduce me to one of his fans who was there to meet him. Such a random thing. Haha. Later on he introduced me to Charlie, he explained that it was Charlie's event and what they were doing there.
The story behind the photo above is actually funny. Charlie and the other guy had put an outfit together and were to dress the mannequin in it. They dressed the mannequin but when they were done they couldn't get it back on the stand. Bless them for trying so hard to make it work, they were really struggling but they had to ask for help from the staff in the store. First there was one lady helping them but she couldn't make it stand either and suddenly they were four people trying to make it work. It was funny to see and that they were having so much fun working together.
I mostly see Viktor when it's about music, but it's nice getting to see him work with his other passions and to see that he makes most of what he can with the platform he has. People make assumtion about Viktor and Samir, that they are messy and doesn't put that much work into things, which is completely not true. Samir & Viktor are putting a lot more work into what they do compared to many people. They do a lot of different things in their careers but people mostly pay attention to them only when it comes to music.
It's always a lot fun meeting Viktor, he's very kind and always making sure everyone is having a great time. Most of the previous times I've met Viktor have been very hectic and it can be hard getting the time to talk properly. But this time it was much more calmer and it was nice to get to know that he remembers me with a good impression.
The event was open until 6pm but I only stayed for about an hour since I had to get back home. I had a fun time meeting everyone and it was nice seeing that they did it for a good cause. Thanks to everyone in charge, Charlie and Viktor for a nice event and for treating us well.
Until next time, ingat!
