CPH Vision - where fashion means business

Feb '10
That fashion really means business was emphasised by the spectacular location at the Copenhagen Opera House on this cold and snowy white Wednesday 10 February 2010 at 6 pm.

The models presented key trends for autumn/winter 2010, carefully chosen from Øksnehallen's 156 exhibitors, an exhibition space for first movers and exclusive designers. The show was styled by stylist Anne Stockmann - in partnership with global trend forecasting agency WGSN.

Winter wonderland
This season designers are seducing us with a mystery fairy-tale of fur, metamorphic prints and cocoon silhouettes. Colours are grey/silver, rust-red and black. It felt like a fusion between the Snow Queen and an electro chick Little Red Riding Hood,styled with accessories like ear muffs, muffs and fur hats - and black feathers decorated shoulders and hats.

A mix of clothes from both up-and-coming and established designers creates a playful blend of seriousness, mystery and excitement for yet another winter to come.

The Opera, the Danish national opera house, located on the island of Holmen in the centre of Copenhagen, is the perfect setting for a fairy-tale like Copenhagen Fashion Week. The Opera was designed by architect Henning Larsen and was given to the Danish state in August 2000 as a private donation from Mærsk McKinney-Møller, one of Denmark's most famous and infamous businessmen.

As one of the most expensive opera houses in the world, The Opera outshines any fairy-tale by miles when used as a venue for presenting fashion for autumn and winter 2010 to a selected crowd of Danish and international press and celebrities.

It was a very special show - for the first time focusing solely on women's brands.
