    Ok Really? Some of those were just awful and I hope, jokes. But more seriously, a national costume should be(IMO) traditional and reflect the history of the country.. I didn’t see anything that even remotely looks like a historical representation of Sweden. I have seen, up close and personal) traditional costumes of Sweden and they are beautiful, colorful and meticulously crafted.. No cellophane wrapped around your legs..

    Agreed, there are some… what shall we say interesting creations in there! But some are IMO absolutely beuatiful and something I could acctualy considering wearing! The contest it’s an attempt to re-invent and popularise the swedish folkdräkt. It will not replace the old traditional ones, it is just a fun way of putting an almost forgotten piece of clothing in the spotlight again…

    All the outfits are terrible, they do not represent Sweden at all. I think Sweden should stick with the original outfits from yesteryear!
