On Monday 27 August, The Crown Princess opened Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Berns in Stockholm.
The Crown Princess began her speech by saying: "When I travel abroad, people often come up to me to show me that they are wearing Swedish clothes. Not only is Swedish design well-known, it is also extremely popular and in high demand. "For me, Swedish fashion is a source of great pride. "Not only because of the international recognition it attracts, but also because of the enhanced respect for sustainability and the environment." The Crown Princess then declared Fashion Week open by cutting a ribbon. The opening ceremony concluded with a show by couture designer Fadi el Khoury.
