Fourth patronage: CIFF + Designer's Nest

10 February 2005

After the skiing holiday/birthday getaway in Switzerland, Mary & Fred were back in Denmark.

This new patronage came as no surprise since Mary Donaldson had been attending fashion shows with her new Danish friends since she got settled in Copenhagen in 2002. Copenhagen International Fashion Fair (CIFF) is organized twice a year. Mary's commitment as patron of CIFF however ended in 2013. Since 2014 she's only patron of Designer's Nest - a fashion award that focuses on fresh Scandinavian fashion talent.

Together with her lady-in-waiting Mary was at the official opening of CIFF at Bella Center. She wore a new pair of earrings by Marianne Dulong.



Later that day she watched 3 shows (Bruun's Bazaar, InWear/Matinique and Day Birger et Mikkelsen) with her personal stylist Anja Alajdi.

Anja wore a Heartmade top that would later also be seen on Mary.

Mary was in the first stage of her pregnancy. It hadn't been made public yet.
