Copenhagen felt even more like a fairytale city than usual on the final day of Copenhagen Fashion Week. Within a span of a few hours attendees were introduced to Icelandic Huldufólk at Ranra and a Toadstool Queen and papier-mache friends including a giant snail and a colorful beetle at Emilie Helmstedt’s show.
As Helmstedt has been so successful at creating her own imaginative worlds, it’s been difficult in the past to relate what she was doing industry-wide trends, but for spring she took the plunge with a selection of slip dresses. “The trend right now is super ’90s and G-strings and we are not about that,” she explained, ‘but [we] just tried to tap in a bit into that mood. I think it’s fun.” So do we.
