HRH Crown Princess Victoria's opening speech at Fashion and Textile Museum


(The spoken version shall take precedence)

Mr Ambassador,
Ladies and gentlemen,

Thank you for inviting me to the “Fashion and Textile Museum".

It is a great pleasure for me to open this exhibition on Swedish Fashion.

I am very proud that Sweden, being such a small country, has so many promising and innovative designers. This exhibition will draw attention to young, talented Swedish fashion designers.

I am sure you will find the exhibition inspiring and I hope that it will create curiosity for Swedish design.

By these words I wish the Swedish designers and the Museum good luck and declare the exhibition “Swedish fashion – Exploring a new identity" open.

Thank you.
