The World's Greatest Catwalk in Copenhagen

COPENHAGEN, Aug. 14 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

    A fashion event of unseen dimensions takes place in Copenhagen on August

14 as the culmination of this summer's Copenhagen Fashion Week. The event

will beat the world record for the longest catwalk ever!

    When tourists and Copenhageners take a stroll down the famous pedestrian

street "Stroget" in the center of Copenhagen August 14 they are in for a

surprise of world record breaking dimensions! The street is transformed into

one long glamorous runway where 220 models will walk 1 mile (1.609 km) and

present the best of Scandinavian fashion this fall. The world famous Danish

supermodel Helena Christensen will welcome people and is opening the catwalk

with a speech.

    Northern Europe's largest fashion event

    Copenhagen Fashion Week has during the past few years developed into a large

and renowned event with an international scope, and it attracts more than

50,000 buyers, designers and global press.

    But not only the industry and buyers are invited. Tourists and

Copenhageners are invited to join the party when Copenhagen Fashion Festival

takes to the streets. Large parts of Copenhagen are transformed into a

fashion Mecca of shows, exhibitions, concerts, trend shows and parties. And

the "fashion for the people" concept also reflects Danish fashion.

    It is becoming worldwide renowned for its unique angle on design,

innovation and aesthetics and a modern approach to functionality. The clothes

are wearable and affordable - often referred to as "democratic fashion."

    Copenhagen - fashion capitol of Scandinavia

    Not only is Copenhagen the gastronomic place to go at the moment with a

restaurant holding the title of "the world's best restaurant" and "Best

European Chef", but Copenhagen is also considered Scandinavia's fashion

capitol. And the vision is to become the world's fifth fashion mecca,

following New York, Milan, Paris and London. With the world's greatest

catwalk and a fashion week growing in size, Copenhagen is well on its way.
