In a collaboration between Kigi Life, Cultural Consultant at the United Nations Montgomery Taylor and Fashion Guru Aurora Aquino, the exhibit raised awareness of current movements in the arts, showcasing their holistic approach to living an authentic, meaningful life.

Owners and Co-founders of Kigi - Jennifer Kissling and Marcus Svensson - both gave speeches, giving way to Smörgås Chef owner and restaurateur Morten Sohlberg. After giving an inspirational speech describing his journey of following his true intent and dreams, the 150 attendees, ranging from actors to cultural directors, from Consuls to Middle Eastern Princes, as well as writers, artists and photographers, mingled the night away in a room full of tranquil pastels and creative art.


KIGI LIFE is a conceptual lifestyle brand that empowers people to live authentic lives, hence the acronym "Keep It Genuinely Inspired". Dedicated to supporting the arts, Kigi Life integrates fashion, arts, culture, and music in all ways to educate and empower people.

Focusing on creating personal connections, instead of consumerism, ‘Light From the North’ captured true holiday energy and spirit.
