Scandinavian costumes: Inger Hanright
Inger Hanright was born and grew up in Sweden. As a child she was exposed to folk costumes from several different parts of the country. After moving to the US as an adult, she developed an interest in Scandinavian folk costume and began investigating what a costume from her part of Sweden would look like. In doing so, she formed a friendship with one of the leading experts on costume in Sweden today, Ph.d. Ulla Centergran, who guided her first attempts at creating a costume for herself and subsequently introduced her to a thriving community of people who study the subject. Having attended many seminars and work shops, Inger has created many different costumes both for herself and others. One of the most important tasks is dispelling all the misconceptions and myths about Scandinavian costumes and where they come from. Discovering what they truly are and how they have developed over the years.
