– Almost all my dresses come from second hand, that I either bought fabrics and sewed myself or simply bought used for a few hundred and they are just as nice for that, says Malena Ernman.
In the lounge behind the big stage, Malena Ernman prepares for Friday night’s anniversary concert at Uppsala Concert and Congress. After thirty years on stage, thirty of her more famous dresses are also on display. Two of them will be auctioned during the evening.
A thousand secondhand dresses at home
Most of Malena Erman’s wardrobe, not least when it comes to stage clothes, is second hand. The rule is that the clothes should cost under a thousand kroner, but preferably for a fifty-note.
– You should be able to throw them in a box and not worry about something being destroyed, she says.
