Until August 26th, DOGA (Museum of design and architecture) in Oslo runs an exhibit presenting 16 Norwegian fashion designers who, in the last ten years, have received financial support to showcase their collections internationally.
The exhibit includes some of the most successful labels that have been established in Norway in recent years and they all excel at combining timeless, innovative design with quite affordable pricing. In other words, these are not luxury labels catering for the few, but clean, minimalist clothes for those who desire that typical Scandinavian design ethics and already are fans of Acne, Ganni, Tiger, Designers Remix and Just Female, to name a few.
Impressively, many of these Norwegian designers are also conscious about choosing fabrics and manufacturing methods that are sustainable to the environment. Most labels are available to purchase at F5 Concept Store in Oslo.
Sit back and enjoy this presentation of Norwegian fashion design, in alphabethical order!
Now, what do you think about the state of Norwegian fashion design, based on this presentation? Did you see anything that tickled your fancy? I for one am in love with the Mariette lasercut leather dress and Cathrine Hammel’s grey wool outfit (so soft to the touch!).
