Each year, candles are lit in honor of those who lost their lives because of HIV. This event was created in 1994 by the Positive Group. The Positive Group offers support for people infected by HIV.
As Patron, Marie also received a very special donation from MAC. MAC’s campaign Viva Glam Lipstick raised 802000DKK (=$121,627) The campaign was created by the MAC Aids Fund in 1994: “Created in 1994, the passionate red VIVA GLAM Lipstick raised money and awareness for HIV/AIDS at a time when the pandemic was dramatically affecting fashion communities in particular as well as the wider world. Then and today, an unprecedented 100% of the purchase price of any VIVA GLAM product goes toward the M·A·C AIDS Fund “
Princess Marie is Patron of AIDS-Fondet since December 1st, 2012. She attends a number of events with AIDS-Fondet each year, including the annual AIDS-Fondet’s Christmas concert. However, she didn’t attend this year’s concert as she spent last weekend at Schackenborg Castle with Prince Joachim and their four children and family friends including Britt and Oskar Siesbye.
You can read the interview Princess Marie gave to Out & About on World Aids Day last year here.
Princess Marie wore a new Baum und Pferdgarten coat (with thanks to Cecile). The ‘Damara’ coat “features a double-breasted silhouette with notched lapels and front flap pockets.”
It comes from the Resort 2019 collection.
Princess Marie debuted new trousers and after looking for them for several hours, I believe they are from Peserico, Marie’s new favorite Italian brand! They are the Tailored Cropped trousers with silk inserts and they are sold out.
Princess Marie paired the outfit with a black turtleneck and her Joseph ‘Frida’ ankle boots which she debuted last October.
We’ll next see Marie on Tuesday when she’ll attend DanChuchAid’s Christmas festivities as Patron.
