Copenhagen Fashion Week X Social Zoo

For the last couple of months, we have been working closely together with Copenhagen Fashion Week, and last week we hosted the advisory board with some of the most influential editors and buyers for a week of Danish fashion and cultural experiences.


Months of preparation culminated with Copenhagen fashion week last week, welcoming our advisory board, counting Miguel Alberto from Interview Magazine, Eviana Hartman from Vogue US, Naomi Smart from British Vogue, Kate Blythe from Matches Fashion, Malina Joseph from New York Times, Gabriele Hackworthy from Porter Magazine, Lisa Aiken from Net-A-Porter, Tiffany Hsu from Mytheresa and Julia Schygulla from Instyle Germany. We kicked off the week on Tuesday with an amazing opening lunch at City Hall and a cultural trip to Louisiana Museum of Modern Art.

Wednesday, we started the show schedule with up-and-coming talent Cecilie Bahnsen, a gorgeous and well-styled show at the Opera house, followed by a traditional Danish lunch at HAY House. Cause, what would be more Danish, than Hay’s elegant, functionalistic design and photogenic “smørrebrød ”(read: open toast Danish style) from Aamanns.

Wednesday evening, Social Zoo hosted an intimate candle-lit dinner at Pernille’s house for the international guests. Mingling and discussing the future of fashion weeks, while getting served an amazing delicious dinner by chef Frederik Bille Brahe on a table-setting to die for made by Georg Jensen, truly the essence of Danish hygge.


Thursday, the show schedule continued with Mark Kenly Domino Tan show at Normann Copenhagen signature store, By Malene Birger and a brief visit to Revolver International Fashion Trade show, getting a private introduction to all-day-nightwear brand All at Sea and the fur-tastic ladies behind Saks Potts, ending the day with dinner celebrating the new DANSK magazine.


Now, we are evaluating an interesting week, full of fall inspiration and notes on the future for Copenhagen Fashion Week. We can’t wait for a sequel in August.
