With a few more splashes of color, a shower of confetti, and some big, bold star prints, Copenhagen Fashion week just keeps coming. This time, we bring you seven more great designers worth checking out from the runways of Denmark's fashion capital.Ivana Helsinki
Opening up the day, Finland's Paola Ivana Suhonen presented us her "Star Rain" show -- which turned out to be a pretty darn fitting name for the most carefree and fun collection of the day. There were indeed stars, lots and lots of them as a matter of fact. And the models were rained upon by snowy-looking white confetti the whole show, emphasizing the lines continued dedication to a look reflecting "white Arctic summer nights." WIth over 60 looks, the outfits spanned from star-printed pants, to star-embossed dresses, to star-stiched garbage bag chic monochrome dresses, that could we worn right off the runway by just about anyone. This gal knows how to stick to a theme! Wackerhaus
A young Danish favorite since she appeared on the scene in 2003, this show could easily be declared the "I want that!" line of the week. With a simple, muted color palette throughout and a fantastic balance between masculine, jutting, pointy-hipped edges and gorgeous flowing fabric, it was a simple, but beautiful show. And holding true to her great level of simple, yet edgy elegance, the pieces were all accented with crazy barbed details on the earrings and shoes that could jazz up any outfit alone.Vilsbol de Arce
This was a difficult show to describe. Created in 2002 by two students from the Copenhagen Fashion & Design School, Prisca Vilsbol and Pia de Arce have since gone on to create the edgiest interpretations I've ever seen. From the looping top that reminded me of the alien singer in The Fifth Element to the bangs made out of ponytails, it was easily one of the most unique presentations I've ever seen. And yet, no matter how many stark lines of mascara you put on those models to make them looks scary, the outfits somehow looked incredibly abstract chic, and oh-so-comfy.Bibi GHOST
For a show that took place in the old Carlsberg Brewery, the young Danish designer's third collection was so not a frat party. Made entirely of silk, draped in large shapes and covering printed leggings, with what looked like pillows falling over the models faces, the collection was actually really soothing -- probably an odd word to use to describe clothing, but it just was. They clothes looked incredibly comfortable, but like anything else out there.Bruuns Bazaar
When the Prime Minister walks in across from you in the front row amidst a flurry of camera flashes, you know the show you're at is going to be a big deal. As one of the leading brands in Scandinavia, Bruuns Bazaar, and the diffusion line, BZR, is a line with a little bit of something for everyone - including your friend who, no matter how many times you tell here "tights are NOT pants" refuses put on a pair of knickers under her oversized mustard-colored silk blouse.
Designers Remix Collection
A high-end line meant to be as unpredictable as the women who wear it, Designer and Creative Director Charlotte Eskildsen describes it as "sexy, edgy, and slightly askew." That works for me! Considering the entire show was created around an incredibly strong equestrian theme, we were all terribly conflicted -- not sure whether we loved, loved, loved the bondage style straps around the models, or felt a bit like we'd just stumbled across the first press photos of Daniel Radcliffe for Equus... The clothes were all exquisitely made, but a tiny bit country club horse-riding naughty girl.Stine Goya
If you ever thought that drop-crotched harem pants were a bad idea, that they would never catch on in mainstream fashion, Stine Goya -- and most of Denmark it turns out -- disagrees with you. And we do too now, after seeing just how chic they look in elegant and shiny reds, blacks, and gold. It's no wonder this clothing line has a cult following when you walk out of a show feeling empowered by all of the clothes full of rich, deep, dark colors and extravagantly simple pieces like this.
