In 2021 we will launch the project in Västerås, and we chose Egypt to be our 1st destination outside Sweden .

Unique concept

An innovative approach of creating an interactive platform by combining art, design& fashion presented by artists and designers worldwide under the same roof. and creating a movable platform to reach people where they are located and wake their interest .

Contemporary sustainable approach

Artists embraced this definition as a means to understand their individual impact on the environment. The idea of sustainability in art has led to ground breaking works that leverage unique media and send powerful messages about climate change, political policy, and social injustice. Also Swedish fashion aims to go from linear production to circular, where materials are not discarded after use but instead recycled or used in other ways so that the waste is kept to a minimum.

Online representation

Participating in this fair gives you online representation on Galleri SoHo website, Social media, and on partners platform all year round

Our Story!

Welcome to the first edition of the Swedish International Art & Fashion Traveling Fair. (SIAF)

This fair is looking for promoting Sweden and the Swedish culture through focusing on promoting Swedish artists and designers work abroad and creating a two ways road between Sweden and each country we will organize the fair in.

The Fair idea came after organizing Västerås 1st International Art Fair which was held  17-24 October 2020. and we found a lot of people were interested to know more about Sweden as a refreshing destination for art & design.

As our network has been growing, we now feel that it is time to do a different approach and invite more people to join us and start a new movement based on sustainability and integration.

When the world started facing Covid  19, art became so important, as it can create a harmony of comfort and inspiration that connect us to universal emotions, also can help us thinking in a different innovative way to get over this crisis. So we wondered how can we attract people to art and spread this concept at such timing?. The most reasonable solution was going to countries with thriving art scenes, build relations, trigger collaborations, and create an open bridge between them and our base in Västerås, Sweden. 

 Our platform will combine art and fashion at the same venue, offering exhibition spaces, fashion shows, activities, lectures, and sections for traditional arts and handmade crafts. Also inviting businesses, institutes, organizations that have a connection with culture, design fashion, and arts to join us as exhibitors, sponsors, or members to meet in such an inspiring environment. but due to the current situation, most of the activities will be on our online platform

As we know some people are not able to travel we allow online participation. So welcome to join us this year in  Västerås and Egypt to follow or on our online platform where you can access, contact, and purchase some of the unique pieces from our exhibitors.
