Copenhagen Sets The Standard For Fashion Weeks Around The World

Copenhagen has created a fashion week that has progressively transitioned its local brands and extended fashion culture – its street style, couture, and everyday looks – into the conscious space, mindful of climate and people. Denmark is already notable as the second happiest country in the world, producing brands like Kering-backed Lindberg Eyewear, and jewelry brand Pandora as staples of Scandinavian aesthetics, besides the more associated H&M retailer.

The New Designers To Watch (and Shop!) From Copenhagen Fashion Week

On a rainy Tuesday afternoon, the spring 2024 season of Copenhagen Fashion Week began at the Design Museum, where Danish designer A. Roege Hove presented a collection of structured, modern knitwear made with a near zero-waste production technique. The show opened with a sheer, white top embellished with silver beads that is part of the brand’s new partnership with century-old Danish design brand Georg Jenson. One might say that this particular garment—a sustainably made piece from an emerging designer who is paying homage to Denmark’s history—is emblematic of Copenhagen Fashion Week and its emerging talent.

An emphasis on sustainability and Danish design heritage are apparent in every detail of the five-day extravaganza. Presenting designers are required to meet sustainability guidelines set forth by the organization of Copenhagen Fashion Week in order to show. Plant-based materials, waste-reduction techniques, and paired-back collections prove that the city’s approach to fashion is not merely

A sustainable fashion week. Too good to be true? | Fashion

What do you do if you’re a designer who is trying to be more sustainable but you want to show at fashion week? For Emilie Helmstedt, a Danish designer who took part in last week’s Copenhagen fashion week, the solution for the footwear styled with her dresses came from her team who brought in their old Nike and Adidas trainers. Covering them with ribbons, beads and paint, Helmstedt decided it was better than using new versions, as she has done in the past. It also chimed with the rest of the collection – her finale look which was made from scraps of material accumulated in her studio.

Copenhagen fashion week started in 2006 with relatively low-level fanfare. Then, three years ago, Danish organisers set out a series of sustainability requirements for designers to meet in order to be allowed to show in 2023 which would set them apart from

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.

More from WWD

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
