Isbjørnen tænder til at knuse hval ringe
krom pels og platin kløer
arktiske vision
moderne køkken
gnide vores frosne næser
over det nye retter

inde i min hals - istapper

kløe, da de smelter

Nordic Catwalk

   Danish fashion and design is known for being on the cutting edge. Twice a year exemplary work by danish fashion designers can be found in one place: Copenhagen Fashion Week. This is where the fore-running danish designers go to debut their spring and autumn collections. 
   Taking place every February and August, Copenhagen Fashion Week marks the highlight of the Northern European fashion season. This February, fashion week starts February 2nd and goes through the weekend till the 6th. 

   With over 60,000 designers, buyers and global press agents in attendance fashion week is always brimming with talent and style. Set in the heart of downtown Copenhagen, people come from across the globe to see what the best of Scandinavian fashion is this season. The official show space for the runway show is at City Hall, a striking building from 1905.

   In attendance are many new and old danish designers, each with their own take on the "dansk" design aesthetic. One of my personal favorites Jesper Høvring, the revered Danish dress maker, is among the many designers to participate. 

   Running parallel with fashion week is the Copenhagen Fashion Festival. The festival provides opportunities for the public to experience and be involved with fashion week. 

   This is a great time to be in Copenhagen and experience the beauty and excitement of modern scandinavian fashion.
