Meet the industry insiders — Q&A with Tahirah Hairston

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. 

This season, Copenhagen Fashion Week are welcoming Tahirah Hairston, Fashion and Beauty Features Director for Teen Vogue. Shows from her favourite designers and the vibe of Copenhagen Fashion Week has Tahirah excited for AW20.

Your trip to Copenhagen Fashion Week is fast approaching. What are you most excited about? 
I’m super excited for the Ganni, Cecile Bahnsen and Stine Goya show. I always look at those shows for new ways to style the clothes I already have, because the styling is so fresh and unexpected. I also can’t wait to see the design, I got so much home inspiration the last time I came from just going to restaurants and driving around the city.  

In your opinion, what sets Copenhagen Fashion Week apart from the other international fashion weeks? 
I think it feels a lot more friendly, and it seems like everyone is there to have a good time even though it’s technically work. I also love watching the style of people riding on their bikes. And, it’s only four days, the perfect amount of time. 

Anything in particular you are anticipating from the designers at Copenhagen Fashion Week for AW20?
Layering. I feel like Copenhagen designers have a knack for that. Also, Rotate! That show always inspired me to plan a night in the town, accompanied by one of their dresses of course. 

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