Moods of Norway

Swedish fashion labels have been hot recently, but Norwegian label, Moods of Norway are now joining them on the global scene. It was Oslo Fashion Week recently, and I was lucky enough to be invited to the VIP section of their fashion show at Bislett Stadium (venue of the 1952 Winter Olympics). There was reportedly around three thousand people there. It was certainly packed in the VIP section, and the whose who of Norwegian celebrities were there. Unfortunately, I didn't recognise any of them, so sorry if I stood on anyone famous' toe.
Moods and Opera have been up to a few things together recently. If you look around the Opera web site, you'll find one of the Moods founders in some of the photos. They're also doing a fashion show at our Rock Opera event at SxSW on the 10th March. In one of the most enthusiastic display of blogging I've ever seen, they are like a rabbit out of the hatch with their blogging on My Opera. Their posts are as humorous as their advertising copy, and they seem to travel around the globe even more than I do. My favourite quote being
I dont' know! The pink boat is almost so gay that it scares the gay dudes. Their pink boat is certainly very pink! The girls are less scary though.
It is a quite good fit that they are attending our Rock Opera event. While their normal clothes are popular over here, for some of their designs you'd have to be a rock star to get away with wearing it. Either that, or like to attract attention. It is probably no secret why then, that throughout their My Opera blog, you can see such stars as Dave Navarro (Red Hot Chilipeppers), Justin Timberlake (no accounting for musical taste), Tommy Lee, Perry Farrell (Jane's Addiction), some guy from the Black Eyed Peas, and Frank Zappa's so, wearing Moods of Norway gear. I'm looking forward to Jon Von Tetzchner sporting one of their nice floral numbers.
