Think Scandinavians are stylish? There’s a good chance Copenhagen Fashion Week will confirm those beliefs. During August the city becomes a hub for trendsetters, fashion lovers and style gurus.
It’s not all about sitting around and staring at a catwalk, though – events on during the week include unusual exhibitions, street parties, small concerts, competitions and shopping offers.
A stereotype of Danish fashion is that everyone wears black all the time. We don’t want to say whether that’s true (you can judge for yourself), but there is certain simplicity and elegance to Denmark’s fashion scene.
The Danish capital actually holds this event twice a year, in February and August, giving you the chance to spot the styles you’ll need for next season, whether it’s going to be warm or cold.
