Eyes on talent
This season, the inaugural Talent Slot has been awarded to A. Roege Hove, whose contemporary exploration on knitwear and textile manipulation, imbued with a conscious approach to design, presented a clear indication of a future Nordic design dexterity to the official show committee.
As part of Copenhagen Fashion Week's focus on supporting young voices, we are excited to announce Julie Gilhart, CDO of Tomorrow Ltd. & President of Tomorrow Projects, as our inaugural Talent Mentor offering a mentorship program to A. Roege Hove.
"As someone who believes some of the best talent has always yet to be discovered, I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to serve as the inaugural Copenhagen Fashion Week talent mentor and to be working with Amalie Roege Hove. One of my greatest passions lies in fostering and encouraging emerging talent, and it's an honor to utilize this platform to mentor the next generation of talent in Copenhagen."

- Amalie Roege Hove, Founder A. Roege Hove
