Oslo Runway began as an effort to build up the Norwegian design industry and we are so thrilled it’s come back for another season!
“For this to be a success we need to gather together and go in the right direction. We have designers and many skilled people. It is not impossible to take Norwegian fashion to international heights.” said one of the creators, Ditte Kristensen.

This Milan-educated designer was previously part of the designer duo Batlak & Selvig, but started his own line in 2013. He has always been a favorite in the Norwegian fashion industry and never disappoints with unique, interesting collections.
This show started off with a bang to the sound of Edith Piaf’s iconic song, “Non, je ne regrette rien”. Made in collaboration with Aker Brygge, the collection is filled with cozy, layered knits.
Elisabeth Stray Pedersen
Accompanied by cellist Ingvild Nesdal Sandnes, this show had some of the best outerwear at Oslo Runway. To make her clothes more environmentally friendly, Elisabeth Stray Pedersen actually bought an old wool factory just outside of Oslo. By doing this she is able to control how the wool is made, where the wool is sourced from, and she doesn’t have to ship the materials from outside the country.
“My woman values elegance, practicality and decisive cuts, combined with high- quality materials,” says the designer behind FWSS, Nina Granerød. The name of the brand is an acronym for the year’s four seasons – fall, winter, spring, and summer. The brand releases four collection each year to help the modern woman build a timeless wardrobe with quality pieces.
