In her graduation collection fashion designer, Nicoline Borum Dalgaard, lives out her passion for Queen Margrethe. Based on the Queen's colourful, humorous and very personal wardrobe. Nicoline Borum Dalgaard has developed a series of form principles which she uses to redesign the English Teddy Boy's clothes culture. Teddy Boys is a British subculture from the 1950s where young men in their choice of clothes were inspired by the Edwardian period. The collection, 'Margrethe's Boys' is filled with flowers, décolleté, multi-coloured raw silk and a little bit of unpretentiousness, for, as the Queen says about her clothes when she goes hunting with the Prince Consort, " look like an avalanche in tailspin."
