Bold prints by Stine Goya
Nørrebrogade in central Copenhagen is the location of Stine Goya’s shop. This young Dane started out as a model and fashion student before opening her own clothing line in 2006. Her fresh colours and bold prints gave a real jolt to the Danish fashion world. Each garment has a unique character, and the designs exude a sense of drama. The magic word for Stine Goya is individualism and fashion-conscious young Danes are crazy about her designs.
Baum und Pferdgarten seek out the contrasts
The heart of Copenhagen is the home base of Rikke Baumgarten and Helle Hestehave, the women behind Baum und Pferdgarten. Their designs push the boundaries between male and female, minimalistic and bombastic, glossy and dull. Whether it be funny prints, crazy collars or exceptional buttons, clothing by Baum und Pferdgarten always incorporates a little joke. The boutique is a wonderful place to browse among classic garments and playful avant-garde designs, which you can combine in endless ways.
Sustainable fairy-tale dresses
To enter Trash-Couture’s shop on Bredgade in Copenhagen is to step into a fairy-tale world of lace, ruffles and shiny silk. This artful clothing label uses leftover fabric from exclusive fashion houses for its collections. Natural silk is then sewn together with these scraps into special creations by hand. The result is a clothing line with unique gala and cocktail dresses and wedding gowns. Thanks to their sustainable creative process, Trash-Couture’s dresses have in recent years achieved a kind of cult status among environmentally conscious fashionistas.
