It's no secret that Mondo Kaos has the best customers. With your help, we can together spread the good news about reclaiming our femininity and loving ourselves as we are.
Therefore, we have decided to make some customer portraits to give a better insight into who our customers are, and thereby show how different we all are.
We start with two of our customers, Birgitte and Christina, who talk about their experiences as customers at Mondo Kaos, about their style, as well as passing on some advice to the rest of you. Read along and be inspired by these two beautiful women.
Age: 60 years
Occupation: Operations Nurse
I am one of the nurses currently. has been sent home from the private hospital where I am otherwise employed. Not because I am affected by corona, but because our equipment must be available to the region.
My husband has also been sent home, so we have time to go with a lot of practical things, but also have fun with puzzles, baking, movies and trying new food recipes.
We remember to make romantic dinners where we dress nicely and have candelabra on the table, good music and maybe dance a tango in the living room.
My attention to 1950er the style I first got through your Facebook page, but never quite had the courage before I met my husband 4 1/2 years ago. He is my great source of inspiration, and supports me in "jumping into being myself".
I love the style and quality that you just get from them Mondo Kaos. There are always new things happening on the website, it's super easy and fast to shop here, every package you get always comes with a personal greeting. It almost feels like having a personal shopper.
And soon I have been to the physical store so many times that Stine just knows if I have now also chosen the right size when I shop online. Stine remembers her customers. It makes it all very personal and present.
If I have to give three styling advice, it will be:
1. Do what you can with the small details / accessories / hair, so you get a complete style. It really doesn't take much to change the whole look.
2. Care. Set aside time for that. Prioritize it in your everyday life.
Everyone likes a woman who has done something for herself.
3. Elisabeth Arden has said:
"There are no ugly women, only lazy"... and it's so true, so true.❤️
Name: Christina Mai
Age: 45 years
Occupation: Singer, music teacher and idea developer.
What are you up to?
Besides that I currently. teaches online due to the pandemic, then I write an article about the elective in music as an exam subject, and otherwise try to fill the days with meditation, yoga, dance, flexibility, good online talks / audio books and spending time with my daughter and my boyfriend.
Where do you get your inspiration for your particular style?
I get inspiration from movies, SoMe, old magazines, vintage shops, my girlfriend, the burlesque world and of course from Mondo Kaos blog.
In addition, I love that I feel a close relationship with the wonderful Mondo Ladies who work in the store. It's a bit like they's my clothing family. In particular, Stine O. has helped me select clothes for a performance, and Kirstine and the other women are also always sweet and ready with an honest comment. Because here you will never be tied anything on the sleeve. Instead, you get the women's highly competent and honest opinion about how the clothes fit you. So you will always leave the store with clothes that are something that suits you.
My first piece of repro clothing that I bought from Mondo Kaos, was actually a black halter neck suit from Miss Candyfloss. I later rocked it with a red belt for many fun parties and a TV appearance.
If the clothes Christina is wearing in the pictures above, she explains:
The red hat that I bought from you this winter has been an accessory all winter. Why I have now also been portrayed wearing it, in a cartoon my boyfriend Jens-Ulrich T. Nielsen is working on.
Black jacket bought last season.
Emmy Design cardigan - that type of cardigan has almost lived on me all winter.
When I go to work I am often wearing pants or jumpsuit with cardigan to. It could be: Suzie Q cardigan in yellow over the gray Daisy Dapper jumpsuit
Or Peggy Sue cardigan in light blue to my reds House of Foxy pants.
If I am going to a party or out, I often choose the red one dress from House of Foxy and if it's a family visit or a slightly more subdued social gathering, I choose the brown one dress from House of Foxy.
If you were to give women three great styling tips, what would they be?
Let your style express your personality.
2. Let every day be a deliciousness day. Whether I'm at work, practicing burlesque or going to a party, a piece can come along Mondo Kaos and a red lipstick lift my daytime look to new heights.
3. A little too much rather than a little too little, especially when it comes to glitter.
You can't be anything but happy and proud to have such wonderful customers in the store. It means so much to us Mondo Kaos, that we have the opportunity to hear and see your joy. It may well be that we are "just" a dress shop, but it is our customers who make all the work worthwhile. When your experience is good, we get the best working day. Let's together make everyday life a party where we can dress however we want. Feel feminine, delicious and make the world smile.
