The annual Fashion Show of the Danish Tailors Guild held in the Crafts Guild Hall in the heart of Copenhagen showcased the vibrant and diverse scene of independent crafts businesses still going strong in the danish Capital. More than ever are handmade goods popular in a time of digitalization and administration. The more we distance ourselves from the “real world” the more we crave for goods made with passion, skills, creativity, endurance and love. It is as if you can feel these qualities worked into those handmade clothes, leather-goods, hats and jewelry and transcend it to the person wearing these items.
For this years Fashion Show we decided to create two Formal Menswear Outfits in a classic silhouette. A young, contemporary slim-fit cut using unconventional materials in bright colors.
Mounier Lacoste from Scoop Models is wearing a formal dinner Jacket. He is looking dapper in this outfit and he loved wearing the jacket – he even asked us if he can wear it for the upcoming Christmas Party. The super-light allover printed chiffon fabric from swiss house Jakob Schläpfer does the trick and is a real eye-catcher. So let the Party begin!
Mads Broberg from Scoop Models is wearing a so called “Beltsac”Jacket. This Jacket was very popular in the 1920. Before cutting the Jacket in the final fabric we made a Calico Jacket to check the Style and Fit. This step-by-step process allows us to make chances on the pattern before cutting the final cloth. I felt in love with this allover-print Organdy from Jakob Schläpfer and thought it might be the perfect fabric to us to make the jacket for the Fashion Show.
