Goodie bags, beauty tips and killer discounts at the Fashion Festival

Held alongside the industry event Copenhagen Fashion Week, the event offers the public a taste of life on the runway

Copenhagen Fashion Festival
Jan 28-Feb 1; various venues;
You know you are in Copenhagen when everybody you pass on the street rocks an almost nonchalant ensemble that lies somewhere between ”I woke up like this” and ”I'm a model, baby!”

And with a plethora of high street stores and designer boutiques to choose from, it's no wonder they look so good.

With that in mind, things are looking even better on the shopping front as the city's Fashion Festival kicks off on Wednesday. The festival is run alongside the industry's highly acclaimed Fashion Week to provide those outside the illusive inner circle of haute couture with their fix.

Not just for the elite
