"Future of Fashion"

Wednesday, August 8th

After a long holiday with her family - both staying at Gråsten Castle in Gråsten, visiting Skagen and traveling on board Danneborg. Now the Crown Princess is back at work. On her first day back to work she visited Bella Center in Copenhagen. It was on occasion of the collaborative show 'Future of Fashion' that she visited the summit. The show is orchestrated by Designskolen Kolding and Kunstakademiets Designskole. It is part of Copenhagen International Fashion Fair (CIFF) taking place these days in Bella Center. This makes both CIFF and 'Future of Fashion' part of Copenhagen Fashion Week 2018. Around 2,000 brands and designers are also represented at the fashion week.

'Future of Fashion' is the show where students from both Designskolen Kolding and Kunstakademiets Designskole show their latest creations with focus on innovation and technology. Congratulations to all of those students who have worked their way up to present each a collection. I know how much it takes. Be proud of yourself.

The Crown Princess arrived in a wonderful mood wearing a brand new powder pink dress. She was one big smile. Following the fashion show, she was about to present three awards to the most talented and skilled new designers. She also payed a visit to the exhibition entitled 'Future of Fashion - the Exhibition'. All these new and innovative materials in fashion industry seemed to have the Crown Princess' attention. It was with great interest she enjoyed her day in Bella Center, Copenhagen. Not a bad way to start work again.

As much as Mary always manage to mesmerize people around her with her personality, I think people around the world are mesmerized by that powder pink dress. Well, at least I am. A really beautiful dress. A piece many are looking for. Personally I think it makes good sense for it to be from a Danish designer working with some kind of sustainability. Often we see her wear such clothes at these event. And it makes great sense, right? When writing this post earlier I had no idea where to find the dress. Nor had any of my fellow royal watchers. I managed to identify the dress as a design from ArtFusion Copenhagen. They proudly shared the new on Instagram, here. Still I am not quite sure if it features flowers or birds.Apparently the print is based on original artwork. The length is fascination too.

She had then chosen to accessorize her new dress with a belt. Nor have this been found. Yet. Not sure I fancy the belt very much, but it makes a fine match to the colour of the dress. Especially the printed flowers or birds match in colour. A reader made me aware that she had worn the belt once before. At an event back in 2016 on occasion of the Crown Prince Couples Awards, here. Reused Gianvito Rossi pumps and Dulong Fine Jewelry earrings makes a perfect combo as well. I see, what I strongly believe is, a Dulong Fine Jewelry pearl bracelet and her golden bangle from Cartier. Mary also embraced the style with her golden Orit Elhanti necklace. Somehow I can not her engangement ring anywhere. Makes me wonder if she just keeps it simple by wearing only diamond bands or maybe it is getting fixed somehow. Well it is only speculations. Nevertheless, I think the two diamond bands is a great way to accessorize this very feminine outfit. To me it looks like, at least one ring, is from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen.

She is the epitome of summer with this look - a soft material, pastel colour, wavy hairstyle and natural makeup.

  1. I don't know about the dress, but the belt was definitely not new. She wore it over a coat to the Crown Prince Couples Award day event in 2016.

    1. You are absolutely correct about the belt - it is not new as I first stated. She has worn it at a previous event. The incorrect information has now been removed. Thanks.

  2. very nice dress color and style. I like it a lot since it is also a Danish design.

    1. I believe the designers are also very proud of her wearing their dress. And beautiful it is.

  3. Mary looks fantastic, I love both the dresses ! :-)
