Presentation of the Magasin du Nord Fashion Prize 2019

05 November

The Crown Princess had already visited Høng Boarding School, here, but in the evening she was on the road again. For at least five years Crown Princess has attended the presentation of the Magasin du Nord Fashion Prize. This year the award show took place at Charlottenborg in Copenhagen.

The Honorary Award was first handed over in 2012 by the Magasin du Nord Fondation and has become one of the most important in fashion awards given in Denmark. With the award the foundations aim to find and promote future Danish fashion designers especially with focus on how sustainable each nominee are in their production.

Before handing over the prize all nominees posed for a picture along with the Crown Princess. But the overall winner of the Magasin du Nord Fashion Prize 2019 was Carcel, here. A brand that hires imprisoned women in both Thailand and Peru. These women are employed to produce the Carcel clothing. Carcel's mentality is that this initiative will secure fair wages and help the women to learn new skills and by that break with poverty.

Veronica D'Souza received the prize as one of the founders of Carcel. With the prize also follows a mentor program where members of the jury are there to help strengthen the brand. This is a new initiative that follows the winners. All the best wishes and congratulations to Carcel with the prestiges prize.

Usually Mary is a bit more dramatic dressed when attending presentation of the Magasin du Nord Fashion Prize. But this year she had chosen to keep ti simple. She was dressed in her reused white Britt Sisseck blouse matched with black fitted trousers and an old embroidered YDE Copenhagen coat. Though it is not the most overwhelming and surprising outfits, it works just great. Especially I like the shortened sleeves on the coat that makes the sleeves from the blouse visible. Love how the two materials are a contrast.

Once before we have seen this combo. It was when Mary attended the opening of the Cultural Year 2019 between South Korea and Denmark in January, here. She first wore  the blouse with the beautiful coat in 2017 at Copenhagen Fashion Week, here.

She accessorized the look by wearing incredible green leather Valentino Pumps studded with rivets. Classy Valentino pumps in a vivid color. That is what makes Mary one of the most stylish women in the world in my opinion - she wears everything classy with a twist. The earrings are the same a worn earlier that day. Winter frost earrings from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen.
