Camilla quit her job as "an overworked fashion designer" to pursue her dream. On Make it last, she will share inspirational articles about her daily life – along with what she does as a consumer to help the Earth stay green.

Welcome to my new space! I’ve been waiting for the right moment to find a forum where I could share my life more openly. For those who don’t know me: my name is Camilla and I’ve been living in New York for the past 4 years. I quit my job as an overworked Fashion Designer about six months ago to pursue my dream to open an online store that sells artwork and unique clothes/objects handmade by me and my peers called HUS ( I hope to provide my readers with fun and inspirational articles about my daily life along with what I do as a consumer to help the earth stay green.

Camilla Engström: Thank you so much for your sweet words. I believe my nail polish is from Essie (color Bordeaux) and that silver sculpture is made by New York based artist Skyler Brickley. He's great and I'm actually working on posting an interview I did with him a while ago. Thank you so much for sharing Claire Barrow's work. She's so amazing.

J: Wow, I'm impressed and inspired by everything on your blog. A felt a sudden relief that ideas like Hus-Hus exist and come about more and more nowadays! I'm struck by the silver sculpture-like object in your photographs, what is it? I must admit I'm really loving the nail polish you are wearing in the first pic too! Would love to get my hands on it :) (care to tell?)!!! Lastly I must also comment on the pieces of clothing you stich and make, fun yet beautiful. Your work reminds me of another designer whom I admire - Claire Barrow! Bye and thanks!
