Back from Copenhagen Fashion Week

Pheew, it's over. Intense, man! Last week, Copenhagen hosted the biggest fashion week of the Baltic Sea Region and I was honored to be a guest of the Danish Fashion Institute. The duo-delegation of our business development agency Frön was at the introductory press conference, did several runways (Barbara I Gongini, Maxjenny, Stine Ladefoget, Henrik Silvius) and previews (Rene Gurskov), had some meetings at the übercool-humongous Gallery trade fair and did some shopping'n'dinners'n'wines. Since Frön's strong focus is on fashion, we are still loaded of the sustainably long-burning energy of the CPHFW and with new ideas we intend to implement. Sitting alone in your office won't work. It's obvious, gotta go out there, meet people, see stuff and get inspired.
