The Liberal Party
There is more freedom here than elsewhere regarding
dress code. Clothing should reflect that politicians
are not completely removed from how the rest
of society dresses. But I dress more formally, for example,
for meetings in Germany, where my German
colleagues my age wear suits, nylon stockings and
high pumps - all the time - never anything casual.
For a ball at the Royal Palace, some colleagues and I
had initiated a group, “The Seal Gang”, across political
parties, who wore sealskin at the party to raise
awareness for the Inuit hunters and their sealskins.
My contribution was a bomber jacket dyed in a blue
pattern, designed by JSPR Jensen. Lone Loklindt,
(social Liberal Party) wore a classic cape, Sara Olsvig
(the Greenland IA party) a red dress embroidered
in sealskin with Greenlandic decorations and Flemming
Moeller Mortensen, (Social Democratic Party),
a sealskin bow tie.

It has been really great to be styled by Pari. Both outfits
were something I could have chosen. I am very
fond of prints, and the combination of the delicate
and slightly larger prints is both beautiful and young
in a compelling way that I like.
I have invested a lot of energy in being a woman
under 30 in politics, where one wants to signal being
dynamic and serious with clothes that are cool, but
not reserved. On the other hand, you do not want
to look like an old man, or dress as a 50 year old in
a uniform with matching jacket and skirt. I believe
that clothes can show both that you are in control
and that you are cooperative. It would be rather odd
otherwise for people like me, who spends so much
time talking to people and playing with the children
in the sandbox.

The Social Liberal Party

I have to have some clothes ready in the cupboard

in my office. If I have meetings at Christiansborg and

something official suddenly turns up, something in

the morning and something else in the evening, or

TV a couple of times, you can’t wear the same clothes

all the time. For that purpose, I have jackets or something

else to change into - all kinds of clothes. I try to

be a little creative – and a pair of high heals can lift

the whole look.

You need to have your own style, your own identity.

No minister uniform. It is I, who is Minister, not the

minister, who has become me. Sofie must matter. In

my work but also in the way I dress.

The Conservative Party

Colours, I like a lot, especially purple and dustypink, and I really try to use colours. But no plungingnecklines, neither will you see me in a distinguished suit. I prefer something a little more underground like Storm & Marie and Bad Habit - it’s a brand from Funen, I am elected on Funen. I definitely want to support Danish design, I gladly attend The Copenhagen Fashion Week and support the textile industry- Kopenhagen Fur’s amazing growth and export success

success.I have witnessed the conditions at mink farms for years an undeservedly criticized industry. Neglect

leaves its mark, if the animals were mistreated,they would not be able to produce these fine skins. I see a healthy business both in terms of animal welfare and exports.

The Unity List
clothes should give the impression that I am a competent person and they should disprove the prejudice people have against young women – that they should have difficulties being taken seriously in politics. I want to look like somebody that is taken seriously - under all circumstances. The Unity List is maybe more relaxed than other political parties.Sometimes I think: “Is this too fancy, do I look like someone who is on her way to a party?” But I like to dress up. I like when there is a difference between workdays and parties. - But I also like to wear lace on weekdays.

Normally in Parliament, I almost always wear a shirt, a tie and a suit. Other people might say, it would be fine with no tie for some particular meeting, but for the appointments I deal with in here, I prefer not to have to concentrate on my clothes, but rather on what comes out of my mouth. I have become better at trying other colours than blue, and I have even become so daring as to think that it is all right to use brown shoes and brown belts - so I have come along way.

Det Konservative Folkeparti (K)

“The dress code has something to do with the position you have as a politician, and especially during years I was a minister I thought of dressing soberly and fitting into the environment, including the Council of Ministers meetings. I have invested
in some Max Mara suits and Diana von Furstenberg dresses to feel properly dressed at he same time knowing that the clothes don’t crease - even on long around the world trips. I also use some of the many Danish designers who do a fantastic job - Day Birger et Mikkelsen, Sand, Baum & Pferdgarten, and many fine designs from especially By Malene Birger and Elise Gug.
