Cushnie Et Ochs Et Oh Land


The Danish chanteuse Oh Land—a.k.a. Nanna Oland Fabricius—has attracted a fashionable following, wooing designers like M Missoni, which chose her as a face of the label, with her sunny electro-pop. For her upcoming tour, she went further than borrowing clothes. She collaborated with Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs of Cushnie et Ochs on a series of tour dresses.

“Oh Land [first] borrowed a dress from our Fall ’11 collection to perform on the Craig Ferguson show,” Cushnie tells “Then we met her for the first time after her show at the Bowery Ballroom in September—where she was wearing the dress again,” Ochs adds. From there, the three decided to coordinate on a series of tour pieces, based on the fringed dress the singer had taken such a liking to.

“The fringe moved so well onstage while she was performing,” Cushnie explains. “It’s a total rock star dress and she made it come to life, so we made four additional dresses all with fringe.” “We just wanted to make sure she would have fun performing in it,” Ochs says. New Yorkers can verify that particular detail when Oh Land and her dresses return to New York stages on December 11.
