Fashion Show 2018 – Danish Tailors Guild

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.

It’s all about the lining

Making a bespoke jacket is a journey and on the way there are lots of decisions to make. Some are made in the workroom while drafting the paper pattern, cutting the fabric and basting the jacket for the first fitting. Then there is the moment of the fitting. The customer puts on the jacket, checks himself out in the mirror and hopefully approves the general fit while minor alterations are done by me.

One important question is: what lining are we gonna use for the jacket? It’s an important question as it defines one crucial part of a full-bespoke mens jacket.

For this jacket I suggested to look into some silk prints from Swiss Haute-Couture fabric house Jakob Schläpfer. Their prints are modern, bold and actually quite spectacular.

So yes – this jacket is all about the lining.


The jacket was cut and basted for the first fitting according to the my sketch I made for the client. Once the jacket was ready for the first fitting and put on the mannequin I started to do some styling research for the lapel and the sleeve opening as I thought it might be fun to go off the classic-jacket-style track and decided to suggest to make a shawl collar and turn-up cuffs instead.

Full bespoke handmade suit

This suit was ordered by a Gentleman in need for a lightweight wardrobe.
We selected a beautiful fabric from the Italian supplier Ermenegildo Zegna and decided to go for a rather unusual but showstopper lining from supplier Lear&Browne.
For customers wearing a bigger size I always suggest to make trousers with braces and a slightly higher waist. The coat has a classic fit with a peak lapel.
