Moteuka Fashion Shows

Tall Girl's Fashion // Moteuka, Oslo Fashion Week

There were in total five fashion shows during Moteuka (Oslo Fashion Week), in addition to the grand show by Oslo Runway which I sadly didn’t get invited to. While Moteuka is open to anyone who is linked to the fashion industry, Oslo Runway operates on a strict invitation only basis.

I’ve already showed you photographs from Close to my heart’s fashion show and today I give you the remaining four shows. Here we go:

Berit Hjelde

I thought Herve Leger had paid Oslo a visit when I saw Hjelde’s clothes walking down the runway! Berit Hjelde’s sexy dresses and skirts are strongly influenced by the (French) American design house’s signature designs, including the bandage material and zippered backs. She says she draws her inspiration from the proud women of Brazil and she wants women of all sizes to feel sophisticated, elegant and feminine. I know I would feel incredibly sophisticated and feminine in one of her gorgeous skirts — some with pretty fringing at the waist, all with the sexy zipper in the back!

Ilse Jacobsen

Ilse Jacobsen is a Danish fashion designer who initially started out offering rain boots and rain jackets — 70 % of the women of rainy Bergen wore her boots before Hunter became readily available in Norway! In the last couple of years she has ventured into ready-to-wear and her focus is on creating relaxed luxury and smart casuals closely related to the Scandinavian lifestyle. She has a shop in Paleet, Oslo, where her entire collection can be perused.

Steeam

Steeam is a Norwegian clothing label that was launched in 2012 in Fredrikstad by the couple Tove and Jan Johannessen, who both had extensive experience from the fashion industry. The brand’s ethos is to offer comfortable, classic designs of a good quality at affordable prices. The line’s four annual collections are designed by Tove and manufactured in Portugal and China.

Cream

Cream is a Danish fashion brand that is readily available in multi-brand stores throughout Norway. Reknown for their easy, comfortable designs, they are popular amongst those who like the romantic tunic-over-leggings look. In their fashion show, they focused on on-trend pieces such as boho blouses, skirts and dresses, styled with a strong nod to the 1970s.

What are your favourites amongst these brands and designs? I’ve fallen in love with Hjelde’s skirts and would also like to get my hands on the nude pirate-inspired jacket in the photo just above here on the left, as well as the boho blouse in the picture just above the jacket.

    Great style. I love this relaxed fashion.
    I hope I can comment now. The registration is finished now.
    How easy is in Norway to get clothes which are compatible to 1,83m girls?
    If you are not very thin, you can buy S.Oliver, Long Tall Sally or Egue in Germany.
    Have a good time

    • I’m so glad that you managed to register, Sunny! It used to be quite hard to find clothes to fit tall women, especially when you’re skinny. As I’ve gotten older (and fatter!) I’ve found the brands that fit tall. I’ve also learnt to try on lots and lots of things and not get discouraged by not being able to wear many things that I think look lovely on others. Good things come to those who search!

      I mostly stick to Scandinavian brands, as they fit taller. Also, luckily my back is longer and my legs more normal than many tall women, so finding trousers is not totally impossible. Online shopping has also revolutionised my shopping, giving me lots of new options. Sadly, we don’t have any tall ranges of clothing in Norway. I plan to do something about that… Have a great Friday, Sunny, and thanks for commenting! Anett PS: I love your name — and sunshine!
