Fashion week is everything you expect it to be. Stylish, fast-paced and extraordinary. And with those words continues the next part of my Copenhagen Fashion Week diary.
The cold, windy February weather did not stop anybody from attending the glamorous events throughout the city. Nor did it stop me from waking up way earlier than usual to get ready for the events ahead.
Getting ready, planning and styling different outfits, is always fun. As long as you can find something to wear, of course. Fashion week is not only about the designer’s newest collections, as a huge part of it is also street style and what the people attending the shows is wearing.
This means eye-catching outfits and lots of jewelry. Fashion week is the time to experiment, because essentially there are no rules, or judging looks during this week. This lets me believe is the reason why people in the fashion industry are always running late – wardrobe time is precious time.

The Hong Kong fashion show was my first fashion show in Copenhagen and it was somewhat of an experience. As soon as I entered backstage, the atmosphere was chaotic, as everyone was rehearsing the show over and over.
The designers were finishing the last touches, eager to present their beautiful pieces in just the right way. It inspired me how the Chinese cultural background presented itself because you could see how the designers, with a national background of discipline and masculinity, did everything in their power to make the pieces look perfect.
The pieces presented during the show were contemporary, infinite and urban. Doris Kath was my favourite of the designers, as she presented black and white evening wear pieces, which were classic, but with a twist. I saw small signs of lingerie-like designs through transparent lace details. Doris Kath also presented multifunctional pieces, e.g. in a form of detachable skirts on top of a peplum jumpsuit, and a ‘maxi turning mini’ dress.
I brought along Michael Boesen for this event to help me with photography backstage and during the show, and he was so incredible to work with.

Next up I attended the Federico D’Angelo show at Hotel D’Angleterre. The A/W 2016 collection is named ‘MARS 1950’ and is based on the designer’s reflections on the converging themes of armed conflicts, climatic change and mankind’s search for a new world.
Mixing 50’s high-end fashion with a touch of science fiction, the use of materials e.g. wool, denim, and leather, portrait the image of a woman who is sensual, strong and independent. The collection possesses dramatic undertones, with elegant, yet provocative undertones.
I adore Italian designs, and this collection was definitely the highlight of the week. I loved the location, action-packed show and, of course, the story behind the collection. Federico D’Angelo did an amazing job at creating such beautiful and memorable collection.
I am lucky to be able to show you a snippet of the collection in these beautiful photos shot by Mathias Kristensen.

Lastly, I went to JF London‘s Copenhagen Fashion Week closing party at ZEN – the most prestigious nightclub in Copenhagen. The event was a blast and a great way to end the fashion week.
All in all, I am super happy that I got to experience different parts of the fashion world during such a busy time as fashion week, and being able to share it all with you on my blog is even more incredible.
