Danish Princesses Support the Danish Fashion Industry
Denmark’s two princesses, Mary and Marie, have both been out this week to support the Danish fashion industry. The pair have attended several fashion shows and events connected to Copenhagen Fashion Week, and for Crown Princess Mary, her patronage of the Copenhagen International Fashion Festival (CIFF).
Crown Princess Mary’s first Fashion Week event was on Wednesday the 5th, when she attended the Ole Yde fashion show at the Copenhagen Town Hall. Wearing an outfit which was, in this blogger’s opinion, much less than inspiring; Mary sat front row with her stylist Anja Camilla Aladi and friend Jean Ahlefeldt-Laurvig to watch the collection paraded before them. Yde’s most notable garment is probably the ice-blue gown he designed for the Crown Princess to wear at the wedding of Prince Joachim and Princess Marie last year.
The following day, Thursday August 6th, Mary attended CIFF at the Bella Centre. She toured several stands of Danish designers’ collections, and then watched the CIFF Kids fashion parade. Wearing a lovely white sleeveless dress with a black belted waist, Mary spoke with reporters from BT, and told how much she loves Danish fashion. In the evening, the Crown Princess attended the BOSS Orange collection show, once again accompanied by Aladi.
Both Princesses were out and about on Friday August 7th, with the Crown Princess first attending a lunch held by Georg Jensen and DANSK Magazine. Mary arrived just after noon to the event, which also saw various Danish celebrities and those with connections to the fashion industry attend. She then headed across town to attend the Margit Brandt of Copenhagen fashion show, dressed in a beige skirt and salmon-coloured blouse.
Princess Marie then came out, attending the Malene Birger fashion show last night at the docks of the North Harbour. Marie, wearing an incredibly shiny black outfit, was accompanied by close friends Britt Siesby and Christian Scherfig. Both are godparents of the Princess’ young son Henrik.
Both the Copenhagen Fashion Week and CIFF end tomorrow, August 9th.Denmark
