Today, Princess Marie officially opened the New Nordic Jewellery & Watch Show at the Bella Center in Copenhagen as Patron. The New Nordic Jewellery & Watch Show is an exclusive trade show for the watch and jewellery industry.
After being welcomed by 8 years old Sigrid, Marie officially opened the fair by cutting a gold chain. Princess Marie then toured the fair and stopped at several stands to meet with the designers and ask more about their company.
While the fair is first and foremost a trade fair, it also aims to promote new jewelers as well as jewelers specialized in the use of gold in their designs. Indeed, two competitions take place during the three-day fair: The New Nordic Gold and the Brand New Nordic – New Talents championships. More about those from the fair’s press release: ” For three days, the most talented newly-learned goldsmiths from all over the Nordic region are dying for the prestigious title: Nordisk Mester i Guldsmedehandværk.
The task that the participants must perform has a degree of difficulty that challenges their craft skills to the utmost. It follows the participants very closely for three days and sees how they each transform the drawing and the measured amount of gold into one amazing jewelry. Each of the Nordic countries can make up two representatives.[…] Brand New is an established concept that supports new national and international talents in the industry. During the three days of the fair, this year’s participants have a unique opportunity to show their own design and create commercial opportunities and contacts with resellers and more. At the same time, the participants compete to become the New Nordic Brand of the Year”
When asked by Billed-Bladet what makes a jewel perfect, Marie said that it had more to do with the person who gives the jewel than the design of the jewel. You can see the video here.
Princess Marie wore her Giambattista Valli white and red floral printed ruffled dress. She first wore this dress back in June 2017.
She wore her Jimmy Choo ‘Romy’ nude suede pumps and her Bottega Veneta clutch. She had already chosen the same shoes and pumps the first time she wore this dress.
Her earrings date back to 2010 and there are still UFOs. I can spot her engagement ring in photos as well as another ring on her left hand but the photos aren’t good enough so I can’t tell which one it is or if it’s new.
We’ll next see Princess Marie on August 23rd when she opens the Copenhagen Cooking & Food Festival as Patron.
Today, Princess Marie was in Hillerod to attend DanChurchAid’s Christmas Concert at Fredensborg Castle.
DanChurchAid organizes each year a reception to thank every partners of the Fondation. Princess Marie is Patron of DanChurchAid since 2011 and has attended the reception ever since.
This year , DanChurchAid choose to hold a concert instead of the reception in honor of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation as well as the 400th anniversary of the consecration of the Chapel of Fredensborg Castle.
Princess Marie was welcomed by the Secretary-General of DanChurchAid Birgitte Qvist-Sorensen and was joined by DanChurchAid’s ambassador such as Hilda and Keld Heick and Laura Bro.
During the concert, the Bishop of the Diocese of Copenhagen made a speech and Princess Marie lit a candle.
After the concert, a private reception was held so that Princess Marie could meet and talk with the Fondation’s partners.
Princess Marie wore her Giambattista Valli pink coat she first wore at Christmas last year with a black turtleneck top.
She accessorized with her Jimmy Choo black boots first worn in 2015 and the Carlend Copenhagen ‘Aicha’ clutch she first wore two days ago.
Her earrings are UFO but first worn in 2012 at Princess Athena’s christening and her brooch look new to me but there isn’t any good enough close up to be sure of that.
We’ll next see Princess Marie on Friday as she’ll take part in the World AIDS Day events as Patron of AIDS-Fondet.
Yesterday, Princess Marie was at the French Embassy in Copenhagen for the Prix Littéraire des Ambassadeurs (Ambassadors’ Literature Price). The Prix Littéraire des Ambassadeurs is a literary price created in 2002 by the ambassadors in Denmark of the countries taking part in the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie (OIF), or the countries in which French language has a big influence.
Marie is Patron of the Prix Littéraire des Ambassadeurs since 2009. This Price aims to focus on cultural diversity and aims to promote the culture of French-speaking countries in Denmark. This year, Rwandan writer Scholastique Mukasonga won the price for her book ‘Notre-Dame du Nil’ (Our Lady of the Nile), published in French in 2012 and translated to Danish in 2014.
Princess Marie wore a new beautiful rose-print dress from Giambattista Valli and her favorite Jimmy Choo ‘Romy’ pumps with her Bottega Veneta clutch.
We’ll next see Marie on June 14th as she and Joachim will attend a reception for the Chamber of Commerce.
