My name is Carl Gustaf von Platen and I live in Stockholm, Sweden. I was born in 1997 in London and moved to Sweden at the age of 11. 

 

I have previously interned at Smith International PR agency in Stockholm. In February 2014 I founded Seaweed Magazine with a couple of my close friends and I have been focusing heavily on the magazine as a medium for capacitating my ideas. I am a founder, creative director and editor - I write mostly about fashion and art as I enjoy concretising abstract ideas into words. Other experiences include curating an exhibition/event in the shop från Ö till A, in September 2014, with London based artist Florence Lam, and Stockholm based artist Max Ronnersjö. I have also been head of PR at my school, and have done some freelance photography work. Besides this I occasionally shoot streetstyle for Stocklm. Within the music globe I am the visual director of Stockholm noise/riot-grrrl band Dolores Haze.

 

In my free time I enjoy everything creative - painting, sewing, writing and animating. I am fluent in English, Swedish and partially French.
