Our news in Australia is saying Prss Mary has been voted most stylish royal by one of the media in the UK. To me she looks stylish and elegant without trying too hard. Kudos must go to her stylist Anja, who has done such a good job over so many years. But then she has a good figure to work with.

Is that Julie Mølsgaard walking next to her? She must be about her oldest Danish friend, right?

Summary of articles in Billed Bladet #33, 2013.
Written by Karina Didriksen & Ulrik Ulriksen.

Mary was pretty busy during the CIFF, attending three fashion shows in a day.
Shortly after the Baum und Pferdgarten's show had started, at 17.20, a black Range Rover from PET parked close to the rear entrance and out went Mary, wearing a pale blue, partially see-through dress. Mary wasn't expected to attend so her arrival was a bit of a surprise.

Prior to that she had attended the MI-No-Ro fashion show, and seen a number of people from the jetset in Copenhagen, among them her good friend, Jean Ahlefeldt-Laurvig, walk the catwalk.

After the Baum und Pferdgarten show, Mary gave her friends, Julie Mølsgaard and Anja Alaidi a lift in the PET car and went on to a third show, this time by Bruuns Bazaar at 18.30.
Sitting between her two friends Mary watched the show and stayed on little after for a reception in that yard, where she chatted with another friend, Ellen Hillingsø.
Mary said before going home: "I think it was a very grand show and there was a lot of really beautiful clothes.
It's inspirering what the Danish designers have to offer in the coming seasons".

But Mary was officially present at a fourth show as well, at the Bella Centre. To be exact the trend exibition, Dansk Direction.
Being ten minutes late she was recieved by a flowergirl in the shape of nine year old Alberte Helmersen, who was sporting a neat pony tail.
There was plenty to look at and it was a Crown Princess who had been inspired who talked with our style-reporter Ulrik Ulriksen afterwards: "I always find that it inspires me to come to the fashion fair. It's a hard bussines with a slow growth (*) but there is a good optimism amongst all I have visited today. The environment and the designs I have seen are very innovative and inspirering. I don't know whether I can emphasize anything special among all the good (stuff/things) I have seen today. But there are always some clothes you can see yourself in". (**)

Mary stayed for a little less than an hour, meeting several she knew in the designers circles, among them Benedikte Utzon (yes, she's related to the architect), whom Mary greeted with: "Hi, Benedikte".

The dotted dress Mary wore is by Signe Bøgelund-Jensen.

(*) Interesting. I read an article in a business paper that the Danish fashion industry was doing well, having conquered new markets.

(**) A sentence so familiar to all married men at the brink of exhaustion who have patiently trotted after their delighted wives through store after store for three hours!
And you can't get away, because your exalted wife have your hand in a vice like grip and even though I weigh, weighed, almost twice as much as her, she can nevertheless at the sight of a couple of shoes on the other side of a street and with a yank of her hand drag me after her across the street, hanging horisontal in the air!

Margrethe Vestager was there too? Good grief, poor Mary should have worn garlic around her neck for her protection.
Hopefully Mary maintained some distance at the reception afterwards, to avoid being stepped on by Vestager's hooves.

Margrethe Vestager is Radical and if that isn't bad enough, also the de facto Prime Minister in DK.

I always meant to put this information here but I kept forgetting.

CP Mary is no longer patron of CIFF.

Here is the updated list of her patronages on the DRF's website: Under Mode, there is only the patronage for Designer's Nest.
H.K.H. Kronprinsessen - Kongehuset

I also confirmed this information with the Danish court and received the following response back in January of this year.

Quote:
Thanks for your inquiry. We can confirm that HRH The Crown Princess is no longer the patron of CIFF.

Yours sincerely,


Anne Grethe Hoeffner
Secretary to the Chief of the Court

Wow that's great that you got a reply. I think Mary has been busy in other years on overseas trips around this time, perhaps this is why. Maybe the CIFF dates clashed too much with her other duties.

Wow - this is news to me! What made you wonder & inform, Terri? Wasn't Mary present this year?

Somehow it seems odd to me. Fashion do is an important image for DK & a fairly large industry I guess. So I wonder why she gave it up? Does anyone think she's working on a more queen like image for the future? (Not that I think that's necessary, she's doing great).

I think the reason why this patronage ended is simply the development of CIFF.
In 2004 the whole event was called CIFF and consisted of 2 fairs: the big international fair and the small "cphvision" fair. So Mary became patron of CIFF and of the Designers Nest Award (which is part of cphvision).
Over the years the event got bigger and is now called Copenhagen Fashion Week, with 4 big fairs: CIFF, CIFF Kids, cphvision and gallery.
Mary used to visit and promote all 4 fairs although she was actually the patron of only one of them.
Now she is the patron of the Designers Nest Show & Award. So she is still involved with the Copenhagen Fashion Week but focusing on the promotion of young design students/new designers. She was also the patron of the sustainable fashion event in spring, so she is still quite involved with fashion.

I think Mary will go on visiting shows during the Cph Fashion Weeks in the future (when she happens to be in DK at the time), just not as a patron.
And because of what I just wrote about CIFF I doubt that Marie is going to replace her.

I think that it isn't a good idea. For me Marie havn't good sense of style and she like black pants very much... not fashionable when somebody wears it again and again. But it's only my opinion.

This is most interesting!

Afsløret i at overdrive besøgstal: Mary har trukket sig fra modemesse - Royale | www.bt.dk

Mary has pulled out as patron for the CIFF at the Bella Centre. The official reason is that the court "will ensure that she has a role that will support the fashion industry more broadly".
In itself that's an unusual step.

However Berlingske Business, which must be considered very serious and reliable, has recently revealed that CIFF has inflated the number of visitors, from 11.500 to 20.000.
- In other words they lied. Not only to the public and the court, but also to sponsers, advertizing agencies, public funding and others who might be interested. In the business world reliabillity and credibillity is everything - especially when you get the royal seal in the form of a DRF patron.

The manager at CIFF, Kristian Andersen says: "We miss her, but she has not had an any influence on our business, she has been the icing on the cake.
It's been a great pleasure for me to show the Crown Princess around at the fair when she's been here and I'm sure I'll meet her again elsewhere".

Mary has declined to comment further on the matter.

You can read the details here: Modeugen fabrikerer nyt skønmaleri - Detailhandel | www.business.dk
In fact inflating the figures has been consistent for several years and despite the management, when found out, stating it was a mistake and they would ensure the right figures will be published.
- I guess we can now expect the CIFF to deflate...

ADDED: The origial article from Berlingske about Mary pulling out: http://www.business.dk/detailhandel/...fra-modemessen
That took place in August 2014, shortly after it was revealed for the first time that the figures had been inflated.

Berlingske also writes that the fair has been marred (in recent years at least) by mismanagement and internal squabble.

Mary will not pull out as patron for Designers Nest though.
-------------------------------------------

Follow up.

Another BT article about Mary ditching CIFF: Eksperter om Mary-exit: Kongehuset vil undgå skandale - Danmark | www.bt.dk

The "experts" Lars Hovbakke Sørensen and Trine Villemann has commented. And I find myself in the novel situation of actually agreeing with Villemann! Lars Hovbakke Sørensen is serious.

Trine Villemann says: "It's very unusual and it happens very rarely that the royals drop their protections. Usually they do it when they become elderly, but with a crown princess in her prime it is very unusual and it is difinetely a signal that Mary and Amalienborg (the court) will not tolerate that mess".

Lars Hovbakke Sørensen adds: "It's clearly inappropriate for the royals to be entangled in this and that's probably part the reason why they pull out, even though it will naturally not be the official explanation they will offer. It would hurt their reputation if they were linked to such a case.
I think it's been a good decision to pull out from the protection, because if the DR is to be the rallying point of the people , then it's importatnt that there can be cast no doubt of the things they are involved with".

Trine Villemann: "I often think they make poor decisions in the royal chambers but this choice is absolutely correct. A royal house and a crown princess cannot be the figurehead for such a mess.
The Crown Princess is a fashion icon and she is time and time again named as the best dressed by various magazines, so it's a loss (for CIFF) of prestige but also over time a loss in regards to money/revenue".

Thank you Muhler!

Back in August 2014, I posted in the CIFF thread (post #431) that I had received a response from the Danish court in January 2014 that CP Mary was no longer patron of CIFF. So, I think CP Mary had dropped the patronage since late last year.

Must be a temporary lapse for Vileman....Maybe she had had too much ouzo when was contacted.
