OFW Designer Show: Norwegian mix

At the official opening of Oslo Fashion Week, ten designers dispayed their work in the “OFW Designer Show” on Monday 13th of August 2012. Together, they represent individual signatures and constitutes a creative Norwegian mix.

Anita Leer: Elegant and clean. The chiffon dresses are classic and flattering, but with unique shapes.

Lilleba and Herremann displayed a world of pyjama fashion that will go straight into ski trips in late winter and cosy afternoons at the summer cottage. Special prints and pieces with a strong hint of Norway.

Lillunn Design of Norway offers capes in wool with traditional Norwegian knitting patterns with matching hats.

Kristine Vikse displayed lovely pastels. The cotton tops and dresses are made of threads with metallic shine. The expression is elegant and female.

Wiksén brought the sexy and rock chic style to the catwalk. Leather pants and blue coat is a balanced match.

Huldra Clothing is inspired by the 50´s female trend, highlighting the female curves. Details like large buttons and dots are complimented with strong colors like blue, yellow and red.

Venti Uno impressed with simplicity. Designer Nadya Khamitskaya shows how less is more. The shape of the dresses brings out the most sexy parts of the female body. The pale and classic colors make this a timeless collection. (Top photo is Venti Uno too).

TSH has focused on laser cut flowers. The relief effect and color scheme makes this the best collection ever made by Tina Steffenakk Hermansen. The materials and compositions are simply admirable.

Soyaaulait showed a signature floral print in beautiful colors. The watercolor-effect and loose fit makes this a natural choice for women in many sizes.

Norwegian Couture designs preppy clothes for trendy men. The collars have similar shapes, and the color scheme is dimmed and versatile.
