Oslo Runway is a Norwegian fashion event, established in 2015, where brands showcase their upcoming collections to press, buyers and influencers. Each winter and late summer, Oslo Runway hosted Norway’s largest fashion event in Oslo, displaying the cutting edge of established and new Norwegian design talent.
Oslo Runway is changing according to the industry but is still a major platform that helps Norwegian brands to grow national and international.
Moiré was built by a mutual wish by the two founders to create slow fashion; tailoring, one-of-a-kind details with high-quality textiles. The collections are small and highly curated – a testament to both the designer’s love of storytelling within the design process.
At Moiré, sustainability is first and foremost about creating high quality products with low environmental and big social footprint that will stand the test of time.
Therese Fische partnered with Moiré to photograph the collection on inspirational people from the streets of Oslo - regardless of gender, size or age. Therese’s fascination for a character’s individuality aligns to Moiré’s journey towards social sustainability and inclusion. Moire has sold I selected Stores in Norway since the start in 2017 and are now expending with their firsr collaboration international with the Italian icon store and world known webshop Luisaviroma.
Wallet is a pocket-sized fashion commentary publication dedicated to creating a critical dialogue. Our issues ask new questions around theory, business and politics in the fashion industry. Everyone is looking for your wallet!
Varsity Headwear was founded by two Norwegian brothers with the goal of creating the perfect cap in 2013. The brand started selling their products from a small shop in Oslo. Today the products are distributed through their brand stores in Oslo and St. Tropez, high-end multi brand stores (including Bergdorf Goodman, Printemps, Lodenfrey, etc.) and online.
