Copenhagen Fashion Week

When I was a junior in college, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to study abroad.  Traveling throughout Europe was by far one of the best experiences of my life.  I lived in London, but I met up with some of my best college friends in France, Spain, Italy, and surprisingly, Denmark!  I never expected to travel to Copenhagen, Denmark, but my friends and I gathered there for the one and only Sensation White, an electronic experience with 8 hours of NON-STOP dancing.  Although Sensation was amazing, I also fell in love with the quaint city, the friendly people, and the authentic European flavor, not to mention the Scandinavian men... Let's just say, Vampire Eric's EVERYWHERE!  Needless to say, my time in Copenhagen was amazing, and I hold the city near and dear to my heart.  So, as I try to keep up with all the major fashion weeks (the best weeks ever), I made sure to follow the highlights of Copenhagen Fashion Week Spring/ Summer 2013 (CFW, the same initials as CHARLESTON FASHION WEEK!).  I immediately fell in love with Nordic designer Barbara i Gongini.  Her play on minimalism and detail were expressions of art, and her layering of monochrome garments were on trend and inspiring.  The delicate details, mixed mediums, and textures make her garments oh-so-yummy!  I'd love to one day add some of her pieces to my closet... A girl can dream.
