Meet the industry insiders — Q&A with Erin Fitzpatrick

Meet the industry insiders dives into the excitement and expectations from a selection of the press representatives invited for Copenhagen Fashion Week AW20 — offering you a look behind the scenes. 

Senior News Editor at Who What Wear, Erin Fitzpatrick is retuning to Copenhagen Fashion Week for AW20. Admiring the focus and dedication to sustainability, she underlines that it makes it cool to talk about recycled and biodegradable fabrics, renewable energy and social responsibility.

Your trip to Copenhagen Fashion Week is fast approaching. What are you most excited about? 
I can’t wait to get some face time with the designers and find out what inspiring them right now—as we all know, they’re the ones who will be setting the trends for fall. 

In your opinion, what sets Copenhagen Fashion Week apart from the other international fashion weeks? 
I really admire Copenhagen’s dedication to sustainability, which shows that they’re invested in so much more than just pretty clothes (although there’s plenty of that, too). They’re making it cool to talk about recycled and biodegradable fabrics, renewable energy, social responsibility, and more. 

Anything in particular you are anticipating from the designers at Copenhagen Fashion Week for AW20?
When it comes to bright colors, fun prints, and innovative silhouettes, Helmstedt definitely leads the way. Plus, Stine Goya’s show last season was high-energy and beautifully diverse, and I have a feeling this season will be no different. 

It is our pleasure to once again welcome Erin, who together with the rest of our VIP invited guests will be staying at Hotel skt. Petri
