Royal House of Fashion: Who is the Designer and Help Topic

If you are looking for a specific ensemble, designer, or whatever this is the place where you can ask your fellow members for help. Please try and be as detailed as you can, for example, the event in question or the name of the royal.


Please remember this a HELP and Who Designed This? topic where members can find quick answers to their questions such as: Who designed Princess Mabel's wedding gown? Therefore, it is not a discussion thread where members can start posting how beautiful or how ugly they think Mabel's bridal gown was.

I hope this new topic will be helpful for everyone!

Thanks GT - I'll kick off, I have many questions for this topic but here is the first: Who designed the dress, coat and accessories which HRH Crown Princess Mary wore at the announcement of her engagement to Frederik?
I have checked out Mary's original daytime fashion thread, which suggests Chanel, Celli Freifeldt and (perhaps with most certainty) Kenth Fredin

Pictures: One Two Three

EDIT: Looks like I can answer my own question, to an extent, this article refers to the dress, but not the rest...

Quote:
Freifeldt noted the dress Mary wore on the day of her engagement, 8 October, when the Danish people got their first glimpse of the future King and Queen as they waved from the balcony of Amalienborg. The man responsible for Mary's clean-cut, classic look, tailor Kenth Fredin, told Ritzau that Mary's style and image were becoming increasingly classic.

I don't know where you could find a better photo now as that was taken while attending a wedding with Frederik when they were dating. I do think that she wore the top again at a pre-wedding dinner or some evening event before her wedding but it is all so long ago now I can't be sure.

I am sure Mary would love to get her hands on this photo and burn it. Like it was said, she wore this while they were still dating. She has been transformed into a true elegant princess since those days.
One could wonder what Eva Sannum would look like now if she had married CP Felipe. Everyone was all over her for that blue dress she wore at Haakon's and MM wedding with open toe sandals and no hose........(but I digress)

Absolutely, Sassy. You can ask anything in this topic that is fashion and beauty related.

1. This is a Hugo Boss teal multi-tweed coat. It was selling on Ebay for about $350. Not sure about the black dress underneath.
3. The jacket is from Strenesse and the red dress is from Prada.

Thanks Ayvee!

Ok, now this may be an unusual way of looking at it, but I was wondering if perhaps those who follow designers/brands would be able to tell me the 5 (or so) ones which they most associate princess Mary as wearing?

I know that this is a big ask, I appreciate that, but I'm trying to research a little for my (& JessRulz!!!!) article about Mary's style, and I figured that this is one of the best places to get a feel for what people think - its the most targeted place.
