Copenhagen International Fashion Fair has asked a new international team to ensure innovation at CIFF's trend show.
It is time for change at Europe's largest fashion fair. That is why there will be new ideas and resources when the spotlights illuminate the catwalk, and the 2007/8 winter collections are shown at the successful trend show at Copenhagen International Fashion Fair to be held on 8-11 February at Bella Center.
"After a huge success with Style Counsel as the creative source behind the last three trend shows, we have chosen to replace the team, in order to bring fresh ideas to an industry that is driven by new ideas", explains trend coordinator Ulla Skjødt from the Federation of Danish Textile and Clothing, which, together with Bella Center, is responsible for CIFF.
Two English designers, Gary Page and Carolyn Clewer, have accepted the position as concept and idea developers for the large trend show. Gary Page has designed costumes for the Harry Potter films and more recently participated in the creation of costumes for the newest Batman film. Together, they run the company Proper, which has been behind several Copenhagen fashion shows. In addition, they have both designed clothing for such English labels as "Whistles" and "Red or Dead".
On the sidelines, Gary Page and Carolyn Clever have recruited Stine Goya as stylist, while Marianne Jensen's experienced hands will do the makeup and hair for the show's models.
CIFF also has a new trend bureau to present proposals for the all-important trends. French Peclers Paris is one of the world's leading trend bureaus and has existed since 1970. On press day in February, Pecler's Style Director Marie-Francoise Gane will come to Copenhagen to talk about the season's trends.
Stine Goya graduated from Central Saint Martins in London in the field of print design. She has worked as stylist for Harpers Bazaar, Pilgrim, Brandtex, IC Companys and others. She has styled fashion series for most Danish magazines on the market, including Costume and Dansk. Most recently, she was employed as fashion editor for Denmark's most trendsetting lifestyle and fashion magazine Cover.
Marianne Jensen has worked as freelance makeup artist and has resided in New York, where her customers included Ralph Lauren, Burberry and Tommy Hilfiger. In addition, she has worked with such celebrities as Helena Christensen, HRH Crown Prince Frederik, and Connie Nielsen. Marianne Jensen is editor of the Danish association "Frisør & Kosmetiker Forbund's" prestigious work "Vol. 1 Modern Beauty".
