Danish fashion designer Stasia

One of the very bright stars on the fashion sky is Danish fashion designer Stasia. She has been around forever, which is perhaps the one key metric in measuring the success of fashion designers in an industry, where new brands see the light of day all the time, and disappear just as quickly. The longevity speaks of popularity with the customers, ability of running a business, but also what this article is going to focus on; a thorough love and passion for creating amazing products. The reason, that we at The Fashion Crowd love Stasia, is – a part from being most of us dress girls, and then it’s hard not to fall in love – because the love for fashion is evident in every choice of fabric, every colour combination, every detail and every cut.

Below are some of the moments that somehow made an impression on us in challenging our beliefs and aesthetics and making us look forward to the next winter season. HAN Kjobenhavn (above) – it reminds me of driving through the concrete suburbs of Moscow a couple of years ago after attending fashion week, and asking the taxi driver, why the radio was playing Ace of Base (Bear in mind this was …

Copenhagen Fashion Week ss16

A lot of things can be said about Copenhagen Fashion Week ss16 (CPHFW), but what comes to my mind is that in a world where everything is accessible immediately and worldwide (thanks to the Internet), the joy of experiencing something more niche starts to be increasingly appealing – like joining an exclusive club. While everyone has been to Berlin, Barcelona and NYC, still not everyone has been to Copenhagen, and especially not Copenhagen Fashion Week. Henrik Vibskov HAN Kjobenhavn It’s no secret that the Danish Fashion Week is less renowned and visited than some of the more established fashion capitals, but it’s exactly because of this, it has an interesting appeal and allure. And this is after all what matters; the mood and brand of CPHFW, its designers and attendees. It’s no longer about the hype of having as many followers (or visitors) as possible, but about the quality you have with them. Freya Dalsjø Ivan Grundahl So what is Danish Fashion like? Being from Copenhagen myself, I would summarise it like this: Copenhagen is the …
