These are the stories making headlines in fashion on Tuesday.

The rise of influencers with "day jobs"
Brands are increasingly seeking to work with content creators who would not list "influencer" as their occupation. For the last decade, content creators have used parts of their everyday lives, like getting dressed or having dinner, to build content around. For someone who has a separate career to focus on, content often comes off less manufactured, and they tend to be more engaged with their followers. In a market crowded with full-time social media creators, these users with day jobs can be refreshing for both brands and consumers. {Business of Fashion}

Copenhagen Fashion Week is evolving
Since its inception, Copenhagen Fashion week has been a hub for fresh creatives to explore new ways of design. While Danish design has typically been categorized as colorful and bohemian, at least in comparison to its Swedish neighbors, CPHFW is beginning to see a new aesthetic. "Copenhagen is a city of many cultures–but not in the same way as Paris or New York–so I feel like there are more cultures being made up here," designer Simon Wick told Vogue's Laird Borrelli-Persson. As more nontraditional approaches to fashion are being welcomed in the CPHFW space, Wick says, "it's kind of what happened with McQueen in London in some way, where rebellion seemed to finally be accepted by the elite." {Vogue}
