Saks Potts wins ELLE award for best show

On Friday evening 10 May, this year’s ELLE Style Awards Denmark took place at the Aller House in Copenhagen, and once again the Kopenhagen Fur brand partner Saks Potts took home a prestigious price.

Last year, the designers Cathrine Saks and Barbara Potts won an ELLE statuette for being ‘Brand of the year’, and this year the designer duo took home the ‘Show of the year’ price for their SS19 show, which was created in collaboration with Kopenhagen Fur.

The best show award focuses on a breathtaking fashion show with unique location, a strong or surprising model cast and an impressive setup.

Fur has always been a crucial part of Saks Potts’ design, and ever since 2015 the duo has been collaborating with Kopenhagen Fur. 

“Kopenhagen Fur has taught us a lot about fur techniques, how to grade fur, animal welfare and sustainability. The collaboration has developed over all the years we have been working together, and has been extremely educational for us, and I think also for Kopenhagen Fur,” says one half of the Saks Potts brand, designer Cathrine Saks.

At the Saks Potts SS19 show at Østerbro Stadium in Copenhagen the brand showed their Winter Olympics inspired Collection 10 ‘Olympia’.

Their Collection 10 includes key pieces, such as down jackets, bathing suits, cat suits together with statement fur pieces, such as a white mink gown and shiny lacquer jackets with fur trimmings.
