Business visit at Carlsberg

November, 19th

Crown Princess Mary attended the presentation of the Mary Foundations work, results and goals at Carlsberg. The Mary Foundation received a donation from Carlsberg at DKK 50,000. Carlsberg is one of the eight co-founders of the Mary Fund. 

In 2004 when Mary married Frederik DKK 1.1 million were collected in Denmark and Greenland and given to the couple as their wedding gift. With these many millions Mary had the idea of making a foundation working with social problems, where social isolation played a major role, in Denmark. With this wish the idea of making the Mary Foundation - H.R.H. Crown Princess Mary's Foundation was started and in 2007 it was established. A year later, 2008, the foundations first project was launched. Eight co-fonders have supported their work financially which of course has given the foundation a solid ground to grow from. As one of the co-founders of the Mary Foundation, Carlsberg has been involved in pioneering work, they have supported their aims and goals and with this support, and money, the Mary Foundation now have the ability to help vulnerable areas in Denmark such as domestic violence against women, loneliness and bullying among children. The other seven co-founders of the Mary Foundation are: Det Obelske Familiefond, LEGO Holding A/S, Nykredit, Oak Foundation, Oticon Fonden, Poul Due Jensens Fond, Remmen Fonden, TrygFonden smba. and Villum Fonden. It was Mary and CEO Helle Østergaard who presented the Mary Foundation's work and results such as which goals they have in the future with their projects, to the employees at Carlsberg. Helle Østergaard presented three of the foundation's work, among others the Free of Bullying-project (Fri  for Mobberi). And as the chairman of the Mary Foundation, Mary talked about the foundation's vision which is to give everyone access to the community, to let everyone know that they belong. Jørgen Buhl Rassmussen had the opportunity to tell Mary about Carlbergs history and who they have managed to develop. At the same time he got the change to express his thoughts about the Mary Foundations work. Mary responded by thank Carlsberg for their support back in the building phase.

No one wear a black suit like Mary! Everything fits and looks great. Now I already reviled what she wore but my excitement is not to control. Despite the fact that the visit at Carlsberg was more of a private visit she convinced me that public or not, a black suit is still so fashionable. This black and white outfit would work perfectly at any occasion, everyday and with a pair of earrings or colourful shoes you have the perfect evening outfit. It is really a great classic business look and with the white Elise Gug, worn at a visit to New York earlier this year, it's timeless. I'm so sure we will see the blouse much more in the future, maybe with a skirt? Because almost every designer have created a black suit it's really hard for me to tell who designed this one. Hugo Boss is known for their classic business style, so that would be my guess. Ralph Lauren could also be the designer we are looking for. She added a pair of black pumps and her natural makeup fulfilled her outfit at her day at Carlsberg. Not that many pictures have been published and the only where I actually see her pumps I can't recognize them. What I can tell you is just that they are black. I know that's not much. And of course, she wore her beautiful golden Shamballa Jewels bracelet featuring a pink diamond ball. The story tells that the pink diamond ball are taken from another one of her bracelets, also Shamballa Jewels, and transformed into this sparkling wonder.
