Yes. NYC, Paris, Milan, and London are the top four fashion capitals of the world but when it comes to being unique and effortlessly dressing well Copenhagen, takes the cake. Copenhagen’s exceptional fashion sense, cultural pride, and innovative swag are attracting hip-seeking visitors — joining the list of trendy destinations for Millennial’s in a world that’s interconnected. Denmark is mostly known for their furniture design, but over the past three years, Copenhagen Fashion Week has grown into a highly visible entity in the global fashion industry. Every season more and more editors, influencers, buyers, and models travel to the capital to see designers like Ganni, Saks Potts, NorseProjects, and many more. As logo obsessives, #oldCeline minimalists, and floral lovers taking over the scene and new designers emerge, the city has been more colorful and vibrant than ever before.
In the U.S. and parts of Asia, the Danish “It” girl has attracted a level of attention similar to the “French Girl” phenomenon. The Danish “It” girl look takes a “cozy girl” approach to fashion, and it has become a worldwide trend. From my point of view, Danish style encompasses a laid back clean-cut look with lots of blacks or solid colors and often incorporates some streetwear piece.
The Danish fashion scene, along with Copenhagen Fashion Week, has evolved from being an industry-only event to a celebration that invites the public to take part in festivities celebrating Danish fashion.
This year Copenhagen Fashion Week will be held on Aug 6th-Aug 9th. Keep an eye on the official Copenhagen Fashion Week website for updates about the event schedules, street style pictures, information about featured designers and more.
