Nobel Gowns worn by the Swedish Royals

Fashion designer Lars Wallin talks about the first meeting with Victoria and his absolute favorite dress.
The first dress he designed for Victoria was the Nobel dress in 2000. It was a small process to be approved as a designer for one of the royal family. So when Wallin got the call from a lady-in-waiting asking if he would like to design a dress for Victoria, it was big in itself. (..)

Malin Andrén, founder of By Malina, was given a challenging task before the Nobel party 2015: To create a dress for a heavily pregnant Victoria.
Victoria's stylist Tina Törnqvist called and asked, and Malin thought that she wouldn't dare... "I can't, can I?".
Malin chose layers of silk chiffon, material that is both comfortable and flattering. She worked with Tina and made sketches and ideas, got input on certain parts to think about, material selection, more sketches, measuring due to growing belly. Final adjustments just days before.
Malin says that it is always a great honor when Victoria chooses By Malina. Victoria and Tina do a fantastic job of helping the Swedish fashion designers to be seen in public contexts. They are eternally grateful for all of that.

Fashion designer Jennifer Blom tells about designer a dress for Victoria at the Nobel Prize ceremony in 2017.
She remembers when Victoria's stylist Tina Törnquist got in touch about the Nobel dress for Victoria. It was such a powerful feeling and almost hard to take in. She felt so incredibly proud and happy. To alone be able to create something so important for the beautiful crown princess at the Nobel Festival itself, which is a day when almost the whole world's eyes are watching!
Jennifer drew up various suggestions for sketches and colors before her first meeting with Tina.
Jennifer says that the most important thing was to create a beautiful and timeless dress from scratch with sustainability in mind. That the dress was worn by such a beautiful person as Victoria felt surreal and honouring. The feeling and pride was and still is indescribable. Jennifer is also happy that the dress has been reused with small alterations.

Designer Camilla Thulin and tailor Reza Ismaili talk about the details behind Crown Princess Victoria's Nobel Prize Award dress.
The order from the court came six weeks ago. Since then, intensive work has been going on.
Camilla Thulin and her team discussed with Victoria and her stylist/chambermaid Tina Törnquist about what they had in mind, which colors and all that sort of thing. It's not just about making a dress, there are a lot of parameters you have to think about, wrinkle, that you have to be able to walk in it, move. And of course the customer must like both the model and the color, but above all it must be comfortable.
It is not only an honor to design Victoria's dress, but that it is also a different assignment. She cannot sit there with something that rubs. The Nobel party is a twelve-hour workday for her, it's her work clothes.
When Thulin produced a sketch of the dress, tailor Reza Ismaili entered the picture. And the last time has been intense for him to say the least. He says that he has worked more or less every day for six weeks and often twelve hours a day.
Reza Ismaili and Camilla Thulin have worked together for 18 years, but Ismaili believes that working on Victoria's Nobel dress has been extra special. Ismail said to Thulin that "this can't just be good, it has to be perfect" and he really put his whole soul into making it as good as possible.
Ismaili has woken up in the night in recent weeks and thought about the dress. And Victoria has tried it several times and expressed her opinions.
Ismaili came from Iran to Sweden 20 years ago. He was initially a little nervous to meet Victoria. And not least how he would address her. He tried to say the crown princess, but even though he has lived in Sweden for a long time and learned Swedish, it doesn't come naturally to say "the crown princess" and he ended up saying "du". But Victoria said that there were no problems, and that he could say "du". Victoria is one of the warmest people Ismaili has ever met.
The final details of Victoria's dress were completed as late as Friday evening, the day before the Nobel party.
Ismaili was with them at four o'clock last Friday afternoon and tried it on. Victoria said she wanted it a little tighter over the shoulders. So Ismaili stayed there and fixed the last details. He didn't have a sewing machine and sewed the last part by hand, it took two to three hours to finish.
Camilla Thulin is also satisfied with how the dress turned out, it's been great fun working together, and they are super happy with the result and all the happy calls they have received.

I always imagined that they'd order a dress earlier than six weeks before it was supposed to be used.
