Copenhagen Fashion Week Trends

Whether it was on the runway or off, Copenhagen Fashion Week introduced various new trends to their growing international cohorts. From freelance stylist Emili Sindlev’s outfit featuring foam flip flops to Reza Etemadi’s MUF10 show commenting on Denmark’s recent burke ban, the rising fashion capital has been transformed into a mixed bag of confetti-colours and show stopping moments. Now the country’s fourth-largest export, fashion from this Scandinavian city strongly demonstrates Denmark’s refreshing creativity and growing influence. Here are some of Copenhagen’s most popular runway trends.

Pattern Clashing

Mixing-and-matching seems to be Denmark’s new summer staple. While contrasting patterns initially seem like a fashion faux pas, the designers presenting their Spring/Summer 2019 collections showed how effortless the trend can be. Notable brands contributing to this style remix were Goya, Baum Und Pferdgarten and Saks Potts. Their favourite patterns: floral prints in all colours and sizes.

White Nightgowns

The slip dress has long been allowing women to carry effortless evening attire late into the day. However, the shows of By Malene Birger, Morten Ussing and Cecilie Bahnsen were inspired by pajama-like nightgowns. Cecilie Bahnsen, one of the most anticipated designers of the season, combined quilted fabrics with cloud-like sleeves and loose silhouettes, giving a truly dreamy feel to this romantic trend.
