I have read in a post of Larzen (and she always have rigth!) That the hat in Felipe and Letizia's wedding is from Philip Treacy. I also think that the hat in Ingrid Alexs chrisening also is from Treacy.

"Hjemmet" today had a story on Mette-Marits designers, they write that almost all the clothes in London was from Norwegian designers.

This green dress is by Astrid Myklebust, never heared of her before but she has gotten her education in Bergen, Oslo and Notodden

foto from VG and scan from se og hør

This blue coat and dress is from Ove Harder Finnseth, the hat is by Mona Strand according to the same source

fotos from gettyimages

Also in London she used Arne og Carlos. The arrival coat looks very much like their work, but it is not confimred

This top is from Givenchy

A small interview from 2002 with Andrè Wallenborg, the designer that made her pre wedding dress and some of her purses, he also made the dresses for Ari Behns mother and sister in the 2002 wedding. He is from the same town as Ari Behn and his family, but it seems he now only does purses and not dresses anylonger. Pic from dagbladet

Quote:
Background: Esmond School of Design, has his own design firm since 1999 and sells his purses in Oslo, Tønsberg, Tromsø and Moss
Prizes: 700-5000 NOK
His website has been under construction for a long time
http://www.wallenborg.no/

What is the current trend in bags?
Many small and Medium sized handbags, especially in leather and cord velvet. I only work with natural products and have used a lot of cow leather but also seal skins, after many years it has finally become accepted to use it. If you look at party purses the colours are purple brown and egg plant, also winter white is coming

Why use a purs/bag?
Its feminine, an accessory that can dress up or dress down an outfit, its also economic, instead of buying a new outfit you can use it with new accessories, besides a good solid purse is environmentally friendly, you don’t have to change it all the time and it produces less garbage

Why do you make purses?
When I went in the military I wanted to make something small that I could send in the post, so I brought my sewing machine to Bardufoss, made purses and bags and sent them to stores in Oslo. The guys who lived with me were a bit sceptical in the beginning but they did not say much. Since then I have also made dresses, but now I have decided to only make purses, I would rather be really good in one thing

Where do you get inspiration?
My bags are usually simple and symmetric, and I get inspiration from architecture and travel, I follow trends when it comes to fabrics and colours, but that is not the most important, I make what I like

How is it to be a purse designer?
I feel its easier now than before. People are more in to accessories and are happy to invest in it. But its not so easy to make handbags when I don’t use them myself, I have made several mistake but my girlfriend, my mother, female friends and clients help me and I feel I now have a lot of “know how” on purses

Here are some of his purses she has worn recently and a fashion feauture from Norwegian "Henne" showing two of his purses. Pics from ukpress, cover and Gettyimages

Incredible how she managed to pick the worst dress in the whole collection:(
I attach the pics here for the future.



She has worn Feretti from the beginning as Haakons fiance, forinstance first time on the Balcony national day, its posted earlier in this thread

This cape she has used several times is From Alberta Ferettis Autumn-winter 2004 Collection.


And the Dress From Alberta Ferettis Spring Summer 2005 collection she wore early in her pregnancy with Sverre Magnus for the Japanese return Banquet, she should have used this one in Sweden instead of the green one

This coat is by Cecilie Juvodden spring collection 06, she has the label Maggie Wonka, Mette-Mairts friend Bertine Zetlitz is the face of the designer. She is one of the most up and comming young designers in Norway.



This skirt looks like it is from the collection of Tina Steffenak Hermansen, her label is called TSH

Both designers show their ready to wear collection at Oslo Fashion week
(Sources: Nettavisen, TSH and Magie Wonka)

EDIT to ADD
Nettavisen has also noticed the Maggie Wonka coat, the designer does not like to talk about her clients but says:
"I cannot deny the coat she used on Ørlandet is from our collection, Its super-nice that she uses our clothes. Many people has contacted her having recognised the coat.

Her mountainclothes for the national park opening is from Norrøna, I think every second Norwegian must have something from Norrøna (the other half has Helli Hansen ). Both the jacket and pants costs 999 Norwegian kroner:p
It is called Amundsen http://www.norrona.no/web/homepage.nsf/web/index.html


After the engagmenet the tabloid VG went around in the posher shops in Oslo finding outfits that Mette-Marit could wear. They suggested this ice blue silk suit from Michael Kors, and actually she did wear it, for her interview/confession three days before the wedding. It was way to big for her though, she lost quite alot of weight

VG (paper edition) today has an (unconfirmed) story that the Norwegian designer Peter Dundas will be involved in making her representation wardrobe, he is one of the most successful Norwegian designers, and today he works for Ungaro. He was also one of the hottest cards when they specualted on who would make her wedding dress and according to VG they met this summer.

Se og hør has the story as well http://www.seher.no/cm/SeHer/Kongeli...gehus/1.180089

Dundas first collection with Ungaro
http://www.vogue.co.uk/shows/photos/...=show&pageNo=1

from vogue
Quote:
New boy Norwegian-American Peter Dundas was mentioned nowhere by name on any show notes, but has come straight to the SOS call of Ungaro from Cavalli. He is not a newcomer to Paris, having worked previously at Gaultier and Lacroix, so the cocktail of experience should mean things will soon be back on track - the skinny wenches an indication of his inclination and commitment to total looks.
http://www.vogue.co.uk/Shows/Reports...spx?stID=33460
He has also done costumes for theatreshows, among other the International week in Bergen, in adition to his work for Ungaro he has some special costumers around the world he makes cothes for.

This is quite similar to what Queen Sonja (and Margrethe and Silvia as well) did, using the dane Erik Mortenssen who also worked for Balmain, if it is true that is. Actually several of the fashionistas in the press that has criticised her for using to much Italian has suggested she`d try Peter Dundas.



It seems the dress for the spanish state visit lunch at Akershus was by a spanish designer, Angel Schlesser spring 06 collection, Letizia has a skirt from him as well (side 2 and fashion from spain)

the pattern features in several of his outfits from this collection in different colors
