Copenhagen Fashion: The Week That Roared

COPENHAGEN, Denmark — Fashion may not be Denmark’s biggest export — instead, it’s pharmaceuticals, food and furniture — but that doesn’t matter to the brands and designers here, who are fast gaining traction in a saturated international market, promoting themselves as the stylish, sustainable and collaborative upstarts.

That famous Scandi aesthetic — a happy young woman in a breezy vintage dress sailing over cobbled streets on a bicycle — has now become so familiar, and aspirational, it’s almost a cliché, like the effortlessly chic Parisienne; the black-clad, sharp-edged New Yorker, or the slim Italian in soft-shouldered tailoring.

The Scandi look continues to bubble up from the streets of the serene Danish capital, where women of all ages love vintage, mixing high and low and adapting their clothes around their day-to-day lives.

Last season, designer Cecilie Bahnsen showed off dresses with uneven hemlines inspired by the way some

Africa’s coolest fashion designers will soon have their clothes in a s

When you visit a chic shopping area–say, the Meatpacking District in New York or the Champs Élysée in Paris–you’ll find the best-known luxury brands of our time, from Chanel to Tory Burch. The vast majority were founded by white designers, with a distinctly Western point of view.

Amira Rasool thinks this is a problem; she’s on a mission to help African designers to take their place among their American and European counterparts. Four years ago, she launched The Folklore, a marketplace that curates top African designers, like Ahluwalia or Thebe Magugu. But on September 7th, the company is expanding beyond single item sales, and will soon be unveiling a new platform called The Folklore Connect that makes it easy for retailers to place bulk orders from these designers to get their clothes in front of new customers.

New York Fashion Week NFTs to unlock show invites and products

NFTs first surfaced at NYFW in February, offering exclusive rewards for guests from designers. Now, they’re granting access to more physical experiences and goods, a shift that reflects a growing trend in fashion and retail toward token-gating and phygital products. The keys are not the only blockchain-based tools to access NYFW experiences. Markarian is offering a host of NFT Private Salon memberships ($0 for Silver, $250 for Gold, and $3,000 for Diamond), which come with a chance to win invitations to the 14 September live show (the five Diamond holders are guaranteed invites). Rebecca Minkoff and Mavion also dropped 55 NFTs in July, five of which include tickets to Minkoff’s forthcoming NYFW show.

Early use cases are still nascent. But, if successful, fashion shows could plan to more regularly accommodate NFT holders, who are often brand loyal, engaged and active fans. It’s another way Web3 is working to democratise fashion

Troll Japanese clothing company CUGGL goes viral after winning lawsuit against GUCCI

A Japanese troll clothing company went viral on social media after winning its trademark lawsuit against GUCCI over similar CUGGL logo.

GUCCI lost its lawsuit in a Japanese court, after the Italian fashion house tried to block CUGGL for attempting to trademark a “confusing” logo, which it claimed was essentially its trademark.

The Japan Patent Office dismissed the opposition, concluding that there weren’t enough similarities between both logos for GUCCI to make a solid case.

Per Financial Times, the owner of CUGGL is Osaka-based Nobuaki Kurokawa, who sells t-shirts parodying famous brands. He has reimagined the Puma mark into other animal names such as pug, labra(dor) and pome(ranian). These shirts sell on his website at about $12 to $25.

CT fashion designer once tweeted by Cardi B gets Times Square billboard

Founder of IEMBE Travis Dimeer Terry of Manchester posted a picture of his mother — who is also his handbag and clothing brand’s model — Laverne Terry, 61, on Instagram in front of the IEMBE billboard in Times Square.

During the reveal, a street act with a crowd sang “Happy Birthday” to Laverne.

“It was not planned, but it just made the experience 10 times better,” she said.

To have his brand in Times Square was a dream Travis said he manifested. In 2019, he said he wrote in his journal that he would have a billboard one day and it would be a “major accomplishment” for him. On April 6, 2022, he also tweeted his goal: “I want a billboard in NYC Times Square.”
