On March 5th, Kopenhagen Fur took part in the Danish Design Day in Shanghai. It staged a stunning fashion show for the Gala Dinner, at which His Royal Highness the Prince Consort Prince Henrik was the guest of honor.
More than 200 Danish and Chinese businesspeople attended the Gala Dinner, which was held to celebrate the new direct SAS flight route between Shanghai and Copenhagen as well as the longstanding close connection between the two countries.
The Prince Consort delivered the opening speech and reencountered his memories of Shanghai. A fond memory was the Shanghai EXPO where the little mermaid went 'on holidays' in China. The Prince Consort told the guests how he at that time had suggested that the naked mermaid should be dressed in Danish mink fur to keep her warm.
The Kopenhagen Fur fashion show was themed 'Bonsoir Shanghai' thereby paying homage to the longstanding and fruitful corporations between Denmark and China. The fashion show was inspired by the old Chinese song 'A night in Shanghai' which depicts the glamorous and luxurious lifestyle in Shanghai 100 years ago. The models therefore wore luxurious fur coats from Kopenhagen Studio, Mattia Fur in Shanghai and Tsinghua University. The models also had their hair and make-up done to match the glamorous theme. Niu Wei Wei, Kopenhagen Fur's Miss Happiness, took part in the fashion show as the first model to enter the runway.
By the end of the night, Niu Wei Wei and Mr. Chen Weixian,
general manager of the Kopenhagen Fur China Office, presented the
Prince Consort with a beautiful fur scarf made of Danish Kopenhagen
Fur mink skins and Chinese silk. The Prince Consort thanked
Kopenhagen Fur for the present and congratulated them on delivering
yet another stunning fashion show.
"Kopenhagen Fur is at its very best when sharing the stage with our partners. The Danish Design Day in Shanghai offers a spectacular opportunity for us to do so,' said Chen Weixian.
