Spread over four days, the A/W 2017 edition of Copenhagen Fashion Week included 31 shows, and together with the trade fairs CIFF and Revolver they represented more than 2000 Danish and international fashion brands. All shows were divided over different locations, adding up to the concept and vision of the designers. We took the opportunity to learn how Scandinavians spot trends and create beautiful collections, and we were once again convinced of why Denmark deserves to be internationally known as design nation.
The first designer we mention will not only be highlighted because of her beautiful collection, but also because of the remarkable venue where the clothes were shown. Freya Dalsjø chose the classical Hotel D’Angleterre to contrast with her vision on the definition of beauty. Asymmetrical garments, square pointed shoulders and a difference in rose pink and earthly brown colour patterns were worn by a range of unusual models, which clearly communicated the message Freya wants to bring across – her designs are for everybody.
