But how much do you know about the coolest Danish brands of this year’s fashion week? Don’t worry, we decided to provide you with some information on the most promising designers:
Anne Sofie Madsen:
Born and raised in Denmark, Anne Sofie Madsen’s collections reflect the Scandinavian style perfectly. She was trained under John Galliano for Dior in Paris before she moved to London to work for Alexander McQueen as Junior Designer. Her vision is to show the well-known through the un-known.Her new collection for spring/summer 2014 is called post-human speed. She experiments with materials such as leather, built-up collars with unconventional patterns, and hand-drawn illustrations printed on silk and wool fabrics.
So ladies, if you are looking for a stunning dress, Anne Sofie Madsen is your choice.
Henrik Vibskov is currently the only Scandinavian designer on the official show schedule of the Paris Men’s Fashion Week. His new collection for spring and summer 2014 is called “THE BATHTUB OBSERVER”. Every colourful piece reflects the extravagance of a designer who is not only making clothes but also engaged as a drummer. On top of that, at the moment he has his own project, Mountain Yorokobu, in which he is exhibiting at art museums and galleries around the world, such as MoMA in New York, and Gammel Strand Museum in Copenhagen. His collections are sold only through thoroughly selected shops. Luckily, a few Henrik Vibskov stores are located in Copenhagen.
So guys if you are looking for something really special to wear this summer, take a look!
Baum and Pferdegarten:
Rikke Baumgarten and Helle Hestehave are the founders of the brand, which is situated in the heart of Copenhagen. The two designers are fascinated by contrasts. Their aim is to surprise and create fashion with an element of irony. They focus on details and quality, which is reflected in both the fabrics as well as in the craftsmanship in manufacturing. Currently Baum und Pferdgarten is available in more than 20 countries worldwide, among them Copenhagen.
Definitely take a look at their designs if you are fed up with boring everyday looks and want to bring some spice into your wardrobe.
We hope that you are keen on visiting one of the inspirational shows now. And if you cannot get enough of fashion, the four trade fairs, Vision, Gallery and CIFF/CIFF KIDS, also exhibit more than 2,400 international collections in all categories of style, during Copenhagen Fashion week.
