Text

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."
