With the Copenhagen Fashion Week AW15 recently concluded, our friends at Scandinavia Standard pick their top five highlights of the week.
Ah, fashion week, you little devil. Not being strictly in the fashion industry ourselves, the team at Scandinavia Standard has to admit that fashion week gets under the skin. We’ve been really enjoying the chance to cover some of our favourite designers and brands, as well as get a sense of what the fashion industry in Copenhagen is all about. Here are our highlights from this season.

Henrik Vibskov Messy Massage Class Runway Show
Vibskov’s show this year was creative, fun and wearable. The skirts and coats in particular were favourites, but everything about this show was true to Vibskov while lightly picking up on seasonal colour and cut trends. See our full coverage of the show here.

The Copenhagen Fashion Festival
The Copenhagen Fashion Festival keeps getting better and better. This year's was the most well-organized we've been to and had the best events we’ve seen so far. Not only were there glamorous events to attend during Fashion's Night Out, there were a great deal of fashion-industry-made-accessible talks and exhibits. It was all free and easy-to-find with their excellent website and app. Great job, Danish Fashion Institute!

VIA University College Teko Graduate Show
We love supporting emerging designers! The Graduate show consisted of 12 designers with three pieces each – just enough to get a sense of their aesthetic and skill. We’re looking forward to seeing where these fashion designers go next. See our full coverage of the show here.

Getting to go backstage
When you’re not coming from a fashion background, the fashion industry can seem like a scary, beautiful mystery. We’re lucky that we get the chance to not only learn about Copenhagen’s fashion scene through interviews and profiles, but also through behind-the-scenes coverage of runway shows. Seeing the mechanics of the industry is a huge step in understanding what’s going on.

Copenhagen International Fashion Fair (CIFF)
We’ve tried to get out to CIFF at Bella Center at least once per fashion week, but in the past we haven’t been impressed with the layout (so much to see, so little time). This season it seemed that the space had changed significantly – for the better. A better layout means we get to see more brands in less time, something that during the fast-paced week we so desperately needed!
