Must-See Collection From Oslc Runway
When it comes to Scandinavian fashion, the first two major cities people tend to think of are Stockholm and Copenhagen — but the Scandinavian fashion industry doesn’t begin or end in Sweden or Denmark.
Norway’s capital city of Oslo has a burgeoning fashion week called “Oslo Runway” that’s proving itself to be one to watch within the region. Where the other Scandinavian fashion capitals are most widely known for their sleek and contemporary designs — it isn’t a coincidence that IKEA also comes from Scandinavia — Oslo has a certain folksiness that makes its designs charming. Not only are the clothes cool, clean and ultra-modern, but they also play with Norwegian culture and craft in fun, unique ways. There’s amazing storytelling in these clothes, and collections like ByTimo and Iis Woodling demonstrate that you don’t have to come from New York or Paris to be one of fashion’s brightest talents.
Read on for some of our favorite collections and looks from Oslo Runway.

This wouldn’t be Norway without a few amazing Norwegian knits! Everyone knows the classic “fair Isle” ski sweaters that Norway does so well. Luckily, Iis Woodling had some fun with that traditional craft and turned it on its head — these were some pretty psychedelic ski sweaters. In all, this was one of the week’s standout collections as it really showed what makes Norway stand out on the global fashion scene. It has the playfulness and modernity of the other Scandinavian fashion weeks, but an emphasis on craft and its own folk culture you won’t find anywhere else.
