It’s only fashion but I like it.
I flew to Denmark for the second time in 2 months to cover Copenhagen Fashion Week for Getty Images and Wireimage. There’s something incredibly clean and crisp about Nordic design – I’m drawn to it. The Danes and their scandinavian companions tend to pull off some interesting shows, there’s a snapshot of that in the video below. There’s a lot more if you head over to wireimage.com and search for ‘Felix Kunze Copenhagen’.
Fashion week is 12 hour days of shooting one show after the other, lots of editing and uploads to the agency during the night, very little sleep, many turned down invitations to parties and a lot of mad fun on the press bus that takes us from show to show.
Apart from the interesting talent on show, notable at Fashion week were: the grace of Crown Princes Mary of Denmark, the appearance of fashion regulars such as James Goldstein (seen in the video wearing a cowboy-like hat), The Worlds Greatest Catwalk – a Guinness world records attempt for the longest catwalk, hosted by danish supermodel Helena Christensen with entertainment by Mads Langer and the general atmosphere in the crowd and around Copenhagen. I think the below gives a good glimpse of the atmosphere at the show.
By the way, Thorsten Overgaard’s lucid article on Copenhagen fashion week is worth a read. Click here
