Copenhagen Fashion Week is about to kick off with mostly Danish designers showing their newest collection and trends for the media and press. I am very excited to see shows and attend to many events and moreover, the Copenhagen fashion film festival is also celebrating the sign of fashion with a lot of icon fashion movies. The theme for this years fashion film festival is “the skin I wear“.
– The eye have to travel

The Skin I Wear
Body, Gender & Identity
Copenhagen Fashion Film and this years festival focuses on the connections between fashion and film through various film screenings, talks, debates and special events. Combining the best of contemporary fashion films with a special selection of old cult fashion movies, the festival audience is not only in for breathtaking cinematography, but also outstanding fashion film treats.
This year we pay special tribute to the diversity of the human body and spirit by presenting a selection of films and events that discuss and challenge gender and body issues as well as fashion?s depictions of beauty and aging. We wish to celebrate the growing changes within fashion casting today and filmmakers who portray the varied and exceptional people of the world we live in ? without ever having to compromise their fashion sense! By screening works by directors such as G.W. Pabst, Jennie Livingston, Xavier Dolan, Matt Lambert and Kathryn Ferguson the festival sets up a programme that aims to break boundaries and make us think.
For the first time in Copenhagen Fashion Film?s history all film artists out there had the chance to submit their fashion film to our short film programme. The prize-winners of this programme will be elected by a highly acclaimed international jury consisting of some of today?s key players within fashion and film.
Welcome to The Skin I Wear ? Gender, Body & Identity. Welcome to Copenhagen Fashion Film 2016!
