Copy The Copenhagen Fashion Week Trends Before They Hit The Runway
Copenhagen's Bi-Annual Fashion Week, taking place August 11-15, might be less popular than say, New York or Milan, but that's no reason to not tune in to the exciting fashion happening in Denmark. Between introducing the first fashion week cellphone app and Helena Christensen's mile long runway, Copenhagen is proving its worth in the fashion world. This week will feature 150 designers including American Retro and Preen. Every hour for the first 3 days, a different designer will own the catwalk. Check out all of the buzz and see what international bloggers have to say via Twitter. The Copenhagen International Fashion Fair (CIFF) made life even easier by previewing all the Spring/Summer 2011 collections and summing up the 4 major trends here: 1. "Tiny Pleasures - The Emo Humans": Think frills and pretty patterns with this style. Try the pastel look at home with this Lipsy Lace Frill Trim Babydoll Dress ($109.53) and the Bop Basics Ginger Dress, which will brighten up any spring or summer day. 2. "Exotic Junk - The Neo Dissidents": Get your jungle safari fix with these styles inspired by the exotic outdoors. Get a pair of trendy Rococo Floral Leggings ($40) and wear this BCBGMAXAZRIA Cargo Shirt ($84.90, down from $128) over them. 3."Elitist Elegance - The Precious Uber": When military meets working woman, Copenhagen predicts the outcome. This Hype Cross Body Satchel ($151.25) doubles as a handbag and a messenger bag. We're also loving the feminine touch on this Charlotte Russe Military Jacket ($30). 4. "Color Therapy - The Cool Citizens": Bright colors and fun basics are all the rage for this trend.
