We had the good fortune of connecting with Matilda Dahlin and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Matilda, what do you attribute your success to?
I have gone through many obstacles in my life that have taught me to never give up on my goals and dreams. If plan A doesn’t work, you work on plan B. Staying on track and being motivated has been a major factor in my success.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
As my grandmother was a fashion designer I was very interested in fashion at a very young age. She would dress me up like a doll in her designs all the time. As I got older I got inspired by models in fashion magazines and big fashion brands like Guess. In that moment I knew that was my ultimate dream. To be on a poster in a store or in a big magazine. From that moment I have worked really hard on my portfolio to reach that goal. It has certainly not been easy and I have made many mistakes along the way, but I have not given up. I am very excited to announce that I will be published in a major fashion magazine that is published all over the world, later this month.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would definitely show someone visiting LA all of the tourist spots- Hollywood and Hollywood blvd- the stars, Chinese theater, the Hollywood sign. Also Universal studios and Warner Brothers. Beverly Hills to go eat and shop to get the feel for LA
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My husband has supported me through out the years by doing photo shoots with me and has gotten involved with photography himself.
