Oslo Runway: Day 1

Before I start writing about day one of Oslo Runway, I just have to write a tiny bit about Costume Awards that was the night before. Decided to go there very last minute and had to throw together an outfit super quickly. Actually bought the blouse I was wearing this same day on sale at Acne! Had been eyeing it for soo long, so when it was on 60% I just had to get it. 

For those of you that don't know what Costume Awards is, it's an award show honoring the people in the fashion and beauty industry in Norway. Costume is one of the biggest fashion magazines here in Norway, who are hosting the show. It really is a great place to meet new people in the industry, so I am so glad I decided to go. 

Wearing: Acne blouse, H&M blouse underneath, Zara pants, & Other Stories bag, MSGM via Zalando shoes and H&M hoops. 

Then it was time for Oslo Runway. Our fashion week here in Norway is called Oslo Runway, and this year it lasted from the 26th of January to the 28th of January. The first day started of with the Michael Olestad show, which was held at the beautiful "Kunstnernes hus", directly translated to the house of the artists. It was a fantastic show with live music and interesting tailoring. Some of the models even had money bills attached to their jewelry which was quite a fun detail.

Next show up was Iben, which is a show I am always looking forward to during fashion week. Before we went inside, we took some photos outside of our outfits. These two photos of me and Nina under here are taken by Emil Jarengrim (@streetstylebyemil).

Wearing: Komono sunglasses, Isabel Marant Etoile windbreaker, Iben trousers, & Other Stories bag and Doc Martens shoes. 

The show was held at Grünerløkka here in Oslo. I personally think that this location was one of the best during Oslo Runway, it really had an international feel over it. On the runway, we saw a lot of orange, denim, wool, corduroy and checked patterns. The styling was, as always, on point.

Next show up was supposed to be Line of Oslo for me, but unfortunately our taxi driver didn't find the location, so we missed the show.. So while people were inside looking at the show, we were outside taking outfit photos again haha.

Wearing: Lindex sunglasses, H&M hoops, Marimekko shirt, Stand collar, H&M coat, Line of Oslo jeans, Decadent bag, Lindex tights and Veja sneakers. 

The next show was By Timo, which is a show I always look forward to. Elisa, one of the girls from By Timo, is the most kind person I have met in this industry. As always, By Timo showed gorgeous dresses, but this time with some more edgy details like a sharp collar, a low waisted beaded skirt (which I would gladly be married in) and pattern mixing. I wore a By Timo dress to the show, but to make it more my style, I styled it with colored tights, sneakers, a fun bag and a beanie. 

Wearing: Acne beanie, By Timo dress, Marimekko bag and Nike sneakers. With me on the photo, also in By Timo is Filippa Hägg. 

The next and last shows were Tom Wood and FWSS. I didn't really get to see that much from the Tom Wood show, since I stood quite far behind in the crowd. It was filled with denim as usual, but this year the added interesting takes on corduroy and purple. FWSS really surprised me actually. I feel like they are becoming more and more edgy. They showed the most amazing checked coat/dress that I need to get when it comes out. We also saw a lot of beautiful silky pieces, all styled with sneakers or winter boots. I also have to mention the sneakers that are made in collaboration with Diemme.. They are so soo good! Defiantly worth to take a look at.
