I may not be the right one to comment on that. I will however point out that Mary did wear at least one dress by a Danish designer. The dress at the party after the wedding was by David Andersen. - I've never heard about that designer before though.

I guess it is unfair to judge from the Prada dress. Mary tends to mix designers Danish and not when abroad, whatever the event is. Throughout the years Mary has done a great job promoting Danish designers and she still does. What I do like about Mary is that she does not stick to one particular Danish designer, but goes for new ones like the designer who made her dress for the gala event in Monaco. I don't expect Mary to wear only Danish designers abroad. Since she has balanced it nicely IMO then I don't mind who she wears to what event.

So, roughly how many Danish designers are there in Denmark ?

Are any of them well-known ?

For the second consecutive season, Princess Mary will not be attending CIFF fashion week. While Mary's absence earlier this year was understandable- she was pregnant/had just given birth to twins- this year's absence is unexplained.

Billed-Bladet states that CPH Vision PR & Marketing Manager Natasha Skou was irritated by this cancellation. Skou states

We hope, of course - as we do every season - to HRH Crown Princess Mary will be able to attend to the Designers 'Nest Show & Award next season, because there is no doubt that it spreads joy among designers and gives Designers' Nest attention internationally, says Natasha Skou, adding:


-
It is after all a fantastic experience for the winner to be awarded its Designers' Nest price of none other than HRH Crown Princess Mary. And the value of HRH Crown Princess Mary bring to our Award and the show has helped young designers invaluable much and that the Designers' Nest has been recognized internationally, said Skou to bt.dk .


While Princess Mary has sent her apologies, the Court has declined to comment as to why exactly Mary will not be attending.

Mary is the perfect choice to promote Danish Fashion the world over!

She always looks good!

If I was a Danish designer I would be giving her clothes for free --- surely no-one could be unhappy about such an arrangement... the Royals would spend less (on clothes) & Denmark Fashion Houses could get free exposure!

..Lovely Lady, looking Good - Denmark should be proud!

It's not the second year she doesn't attend, but second "season" this year. She attended CIFF August last year when she was pregnant.

*** Maybe having twins + 2 other little kids is enough of an explanation?

Maybe not? Mary has already done several official events after birth, is able to do photoshoots and to go on holiday while staff is looking after the children.

I find it disappointing that she doesnt go without an explaination and I hope when Mary is back to full engagements there will be less Prada and more Danish fashion.

It is so boring to see when Mary wears Prada, there are lots of pics on the forum of celebrities having worn the same dress as well as models on the catwalk. And then I see Mary after 4 kids and think, why does she have to squeeze herself into such celebrity dresses without having the catwalk or celebrity body to make it look as spectacular?

My opinion might not be popular and before other posters will jump on me let me clarify that I think that Mary's body is good for her age & situation but she needs to adjust her wardrobe & dressing style accordingly.

It may not be popular, but it is your opinion, you own it ... I believe that we are all entitled to our opinions and if we express them with good intentions, (as I believe you did), then no-one should read anything negative in them!

Maybe Mary is 'easing' her way back to a full schedule, while it will be dissappointing for the events she doesn't get back to yet; It is better than missing an important milestone in a Baby (or Babies) day.
... IMO ... of course!

Dansk mode slår eksport-rekord - Fashion & design | www.business.dk

The Danish export is booming, there is a clear rise, despite the current crisis.

In 2010 the export increased by 11.4 % amounting to 21.8 billion DKK. (Roughly 3.8 billion US $).

The figures for 2011 are now emerging and the export is still on the rise, even though only half of the fashion companies have increased their sale, the other half has stagnated.
East Asia is now to be targeted for export.

--------------

On another and more curious note.

Very funny dress up doll site, Muhler. Typical female, I just couldn't decide what to choose!

With regards to fashion exports, what would be the top 5 Danish labels/designers who target exports?

Quite a look on Mary, I'm impressed how she was able to pull it off well and look fashionable in a very appropriate way. Make up is lovely but unclose too powdery. I enjoy seeing Mary at such events, her style seems to always go that extra mile.

I was notice that she has more wrinkles and her skin looks older than for 40 years old women IMO
