Emerging Danish talent to merge fashion & music at CFW
Sep '13
On October 3rd, a new Danish design talent gets the chance to win 500.000 kr. and a fashion show during the Copenhagen Fashion Week AW14.

The fashion consultancy GrenaaBuchard has together with the Danish department store Magasin launched the award ”DANSK design talent – the Magasin Award”, where a panel of fashion experts have chosen four young designers who will be competing against each other. 

The concept of the contest is based on linking fashion and music together. That is why each designer creates 3-5 outfits for some of the most cool and stylish Danish musicians by using them as muses.

In addition every designer has been paired with an established, internationally acclaimed Danish designer as a mentor. This combination of young talent, creative inspiration and professional experience is meant to generate new relations and innovative creations in Danish fashion.

The four designers, mentors and musicians are:

-Designer: Anne Sofie Madsen
Mentor: Charlotte Eskildsen
Musician: Oh Land
-Designer: Asger Juel Larsen
Mentor: Mads Nørgaard
Musician: Thomas Troelsen
-Designer: Nikoline Liv Andersen
Mentor: Henrik Vibskov
Musician: Mette Lindberg
-Designer: Astrid Andersen
Mentor: Karl Oskar from Wood Wood
Musician: Ukendt Kunstner
