Magasin du Nord Fashion Prize 2018

Thursday, October 25th

The Crown Princess is indeed a busy lady these days. She both visited DR Girls Choir, here, presented this years Children's U-Country Calendar, here, and attended an evening event at Christiansborg Castle, here. She also spoke at a founds conference at PwC in Hellerup, here.

Thursday evening the Crown Princess arrived to the Art Hall Charlottenborg in Copenhagen to attend the presentation of Magazine du Nord Fashion Prize 2018. She was also present at the event last year, here. It was that event where she wore the same Britt Sisseck dress as her friend Nina Wedell-Wedellsborg. This year, such thing did not happen.

To win the Magasin du Nord Fashion Prize, you have had to make at least one ready-to-wear kollektion - but not more than six.

As part of the evening the Crown Princess was to present the winner of the honorary award, DKK 500,000 and a fashion show at Copenhagen Fashion Week. What a prize to win. This years winner is designer Emilie Helmstedt. Congratulations to Emilie Helmstedt with the very fine acknowledgement.

During her visit she also had the change to meet and speak with the other nominees.

Mary was a bit more silent in colour than the winners collection. Emilie Helmstedt has a very playful and creative way of creating clothes. Mary, on the other hand, had chosen something a bit more simple. She wore a brand new bordeaux lace dress. Seems like it took me a bit more time to identify her bordeaux dress as first anticipated. Thanks to two of you the dress has now been found at DAY Birger et Mikkelsen. Quite a long time since we last saw Mary wear something from one of their collections. Kinda missed their designs. And this is one good looking dress.

As her new dress, she was wearing a brand new coat. I have come to love this piece very much. Looks great on its own, but also next to the lace dress. Am I right? With help from Else Marie I am now able to share with you its identify. Marys new coat has been found at Julie Fagerholt Heartmade. One pretty piece for this time a year.

She embraced the chic evening style by wearing golden bracelets from both Dulong Fine Jewelry, Cartier and a chain piece from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. Gold and bordeaux are just a great match. Somehow I was sure she wore pendant earrings as well and she did. Mary wore a pair of reused earrings from Jewlcph.

Mary matched her outfit with nude Prada pumps and some pretty amazing soft curls.

  1. Mary's earrings

    1. Somehow I had these in mind, but had nothing to prove it.
      Thanks for sharing!

  2. I'm sorry but I've got to ask. When did clown clothes become award winning fashion? I really don't want to be rude but really? Is that really where fashion is headed?

    1. I am not sure how I will be able to answer your question. I found a little something about the designer Emilie Helmstedt published on occasion of her nomination:

      Maybe that will enlighten you about the jury's choice.

    2. Thanks. Here's her coat btw, Anonymous below was right that it was Heartmade.

    3. Correction. This is her coat, sorry.

  3. Lace dress is always the best choice. And I'm happy that Mary didn't wear clothes which won in competition.

  4. I think the coat is from Heartmade. Kind regards Else Marie

    1. Think you are absolutely right about her new coat. Thank you so much for sharing what you found with the rest of us.
