If you like cocktails, fashion and Copenhagen - here's a fun project. There's a cherry flavored liqueur called Heering and they've come up with six different cocktails: Classic, Romantic, Exotic, Vintage, Dramatic and Rock'n'Roll (the actual recipes are listed on their site). Whoever makes the best cocktail dress inspired by one of the above drinks gets their own runway show during Copenhagen Fashion Week in the Fall of 2009 - so you'll show your Spring 2010 collection. To qualify, you must either be in your last year of school or a new designer, as in, you've been designing for one to three years. You must submit a technical drawing, a description of the dress and a description of the fabric along with a current resume. If your design is chosen, you'll be given the money to produce the dress and it will compete on a runway in Singapore at the start of the summer with dresses from fifteen other countries. If yours wins, book a flight to Denmark. Held og lykke (that's good luck in Danish, we think)!
Copenhagen Fashion Week Will Boast World's Longest Catwalk
If you're a city hosting a fashion week and you're not New York, London, Milan or Paris, you need something to make yourself stand out. For Copenhagen, that thing is the longest catwalk in the world. Copenhagen's fashion week, which runs from August 11-15, will culminate with a fashion show on what is being called the "World's Greatest Catwalk." Strøget, the pedestrian street that runs through the center of the city, will be transformed into a mile-long catwalk, down which 220 models will walk. The models will wear designs from over 500 Scandinavian brands. Also the runway will be pink.
