"The AW15 shields the subtle subconscious,
lean feminine energy well in touch with its masculine counterpart.
Emphasis on sculptured silhouettes. All black." This is the Keta Gutmane AW15, named "Return". Just wow. Back from the Week, exhausted, I am taking today off and will mostly inhabit the couch. Paris fashion week with Keta and Krists, our Team Gutmane. The Void showroom we have been doing for 3 seasons now (lifetime of the brand too) lasted for 5 days and every season we return with more confidence, knowledge, buyers, contacts, ideas and inspiration.

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.
