Set in Copenhagen’s most iconic Hotel D’Angleterre, Danish upcoming designer Elaine Hersby definitely turned some heads with her AW18 show. Big ruffles, loose materials, elegance which met sporty chic – those were the key elements of this season’s show which won’t be forgotten.
When the runway got lit and the upbeat music filled the fancy space, the real-life models danced their way to the runway. Their dancing creations indeed emphasized the wearability of the styles and showcased them in movement rather than in classic runaway walk.
Hersby clearly aimed to confront the ongoing controversy of diversity and model-sizes within the fashion industry and showed us all that size is just another number. Models of all curves, skin color and hairstyles killed the runway as total dancing queens and left the entire room clapping to the rhythm of contemporary house and hip-hop.
The styles itself allowed models to move freely and thus Hersby brought the fashion week wear into the real-world use with her asymmetrical silhouettes applied on sweatshirts, coats or satin dresses. Honestly, a fashion show was never this free and fun!
