Oh! By Kopenhagen Fur joined the world's greatest catwalk
9 January 2013Fashion & Lifestyle
343 models, 158 Danish fashion styles and as many styles from Hong Kong. This was the recipe when the record for the World's Greatest Catwalk was acquired on a 3,2 kilometers Iong runway in the middle of Hong Kong.
The World's Greatest Catwalk was the result of collaboration between Danish Fashion Institute and Hong Kong Fashion Designers Association. The new world record is an improvement of the previous world record set at the 2010 Copenhagen Fashion Week on a 1.6 kilometers long runway with 220 models. This time, the newly launched brand Oh! By Kopenhagen Fur joined in on the record breaking runway.
Political support all the way from Copenhagen
The Copenhagen Mayor of Culture, Pia Allerslev, opened the event alongside the Financial Secretary of Hong Kong. She told the press:
- I am here today to endorse the creativity and professionalism of the Danish fashion industry. Furthermore, I am here to promote the ambitions of Danish Fashion Institute, who once again and with great success has promoted Danish Fashion on an international scale.
Pia Allerslev also stated that the event was a terrific way to show the gathering of two great cultures.
- I find the experience of Asian models dressed in both Danish and Hong Kong fashion to be a great symbolic metaphor for the gathering of Eastern and Western culture.
