Weekly fashion agenda: fashion weeks in Copenhagen and Cape Town
Friday 06 August 2010
August is a quiet month for fashion's biggest capitals, and cities such as Copenhagen or Cape Town are using the opportunity to stage their own events. Here are the international fashion weeks coming up over the next few weeks.
Copenhagen Fashion Week
Apart from the usual designers showing their collections, the Copenhagen Fashion Council has announced it will stage a larger-than-life fashion show on the city's longest shopping street, Strøget, featuring 200 models and an audience of 100,000 people.
Cape Town Fashion Week
Cape Town, South Africa
True to the motto, "Refresh, Revive, Renew," audiences will be presented collections by some of the country's best-known designers, including Klûk CGDT, Stefania Morland, Dax Martin, and Craig Port, who will be introducing his women's wear range. Craig Native returns to the runway after an absence of a few years and Durban-based Ruff Tung make their Cape Town debut. The event is open to the public; tickets can be purchased online at computicket.com.
1st Munich Fashion Week
Amid a discussion of whether or not it's a good thing that more and more cities are launching their own fashion weeks, the Bavarian 'capital' has announced its first event.
Stockholm Fashion Week
The Swedish capital has lost many of its leading brands to bigger fashion weeks (e.g., Acne, which will be showing in London this fall), but remains a great talent-scouting playground.
Rosemount Sydney Fashion Festival
Brought to you by the same team responsible for Australian Fashion Week, the festival features ticketed fashion events for the public, showcasing Australia's leading designer brands and retailers as their collections arrive in stores throughout the city.
