Copenhagen Fashion Week #1

From 6 to 10 February, 2008, Copenhagen was the host of Northern Europe's largest fashion event: Copenhagen Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2008/09. Organized by the Danish Fashion Institute, CFW housed more than forty Danish and international shows along with three trade fairs, CPH Vision, Gallery and Copenhagen International Fashion Fair.

Bitte Kai Rand is one of Denmark's notorious fashion labels. Founded 25 years ago, Bitte Kai Rand stayed true to its design philosophy, which is that of dressing beautifully, comfortably and enjoying the possibility of creating a unique personal look. Its collection for autumn/winter 2008/09 uses a simple color palette, offering a unique interpretation of classic silhouettes, by inventive cuts and details.
