Six Things to Do at Copenhagen Fashion Week SS17

Copenhagen Fashion Week Spring/Summer runs from 10th – 12th August and the Copenhagen Fashion Festival extends to the 14th. Even if you’re not going to any runway shows, there are many ways to take part in the city’s fashion-forward fun. The festival includes fashion talks, exhibitions and parties.

Here are our recommendations for events open to all during Copenhagen Fashion Week:

List Marker: Number 1La Glace Macaroon Exhibition

Textile designer Cecilie Elisabeth Rudolph teams up with purveyors of luxury cakes La Glace to create a fashion macaroon. What does that mean? Who knows! But there will be a window display and you can buy/eat said-macaroon, so that’s enough for us.
