Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway has donated a dress to the Norwegian National Museum.

She wore the dress during the official opening of the new museum a few months ago. The dress is made of wool from Norway and was woven by hand in the Aurora workshop. Crown Princess Mette-Marit designed the dress together with Peter Dundas.

Karin Hindsbo, the director of the museum said, “The National Museum has a large and wholly unique collection of art, crafts, architecture and design, spanning from ancient times to the present day. And this is a great gift. This is a unique piece of Norwegian fashion history Costumes and textiles are given a different and perhaps more prominent place in the new museum than ever before In this respect, this gift from the Crown Princess is very important to us.
