HENRIK VIBSKOV AWARDED FOR HIS FASHION SHOWIrreverent Danish designer Henrik Vibskov has won an award for his most recent show at Copenhagen Fashion Week, Aug. 6-9.
Titled “The Solar Donkey Experiment Show,” Vibskov’s presentation took place at midnight in a park and reminded viewers of Shakespeare’s fantastical “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”
The designer was awarded 50,000 Dansk Kronen, or €7,000, by the Danish Arts Foundation.
A spokesman for the foundation said of the decision: “The award is especially given for the coherence between the collection and the show. A wide range of color, materials and styles were displayed. There was clothing that bordered on costume but without compromising its wearability. The stage, consisting of a tall grassed field surrounded by tall dark trees of the park, was very appropriate to Vibskov's collection. The event was an informal, curious and uplifting moment in Danish fashion when it is at its most compelling.”
