Copenhagen young local designers are the new #black, just FYI!
At CopenHype we are obsessed with them cool, new, skilled, fabulous and hyper-creative designers! And you would be surprised by how many designers, wannabes, fashionistas and those who’d rather die trying, if you don’t know much about Copenhagen. The only questions can only be: who’s in and who’s out? Who got it and who doesn’t?
That’s why we’ve decided to do research about what’s what, who’s who and of course what’s HOT in this wonderful city of ours!
