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.
