Fashion Week Party for the launch of LAB/27 by Carmakoma

I går var jeg til lanceringsfest for carmakomas nye mærke Lab/27. Jeg fulgtes med tre andre danske plus-size bloggere: Ditte fra Marilyn's Closet, Tanja fra Miss Cherry Lipz og Karina fra Copenhagen Curves. Vi mødtes til hygge og boblevand hos Karina først og det var en fest! Vi var nær aldrig kommet afsted, men mente også at vi hellere måtte komme fashionably late. Heldigvis var vi på VIP-listen - ellers var vi ikke kommet ind, da de havde lukket overvældende mange ind da vi kom 15 min. senere end invitationen lage op til. Det er aldrig set før, at tidspunkterne blev overholdt så nøje! Da først vi fik mast os ned til backstageområdet stod vi godt og kunne se alle outfits tæt på. Der er nogle virkelig lækre ting i kollektionen (som i øvrigt udkommer i august)! Designerne Heidie og Angelica har lovet mig, at sende deres fotografs billeder, så I kan nyde endnu bedre fotos end dem vi fik taget. Men her ser I dog et udpluk af aftenens højdepunkter. Det var et superfedt arrangement, omend de havde nok ikke regnet med så stor interesse, for der var vildt mange mennesker på meget lidt plads. Vi havde det dog kanonsjovt alligevel, og udover modeshows fik vi desuden Raw Food og fri bar (der dog lukkede for tidligt, haha!), samt nogle virkelig gode snakke med både modeller, stylister og designerne. Ikke mindst fik vi hygget sammen og vist, at de danske plus-size-modebloggere er kommet for at blive! Mit outfit følger i morgen, så husk at tage et smut forbi bloggen dér. Desuden lægger de tre andre piger også billeder op, så kig med hos dem også. God lørdag derude!

Last night I attended the launch party for carmakoma's new sublabel Lab/27. I went with three other danish plus-size bloggers: Ditte of Marilyn's Closet, Tanja of Miss Cherry Lipz and Karina of Copenhagen Curves. We met up for sparkling wine and girl talk at Karina's first, and we nearly missed the party as they were about to dismiss us for showing up 15 minutes (fashionably) late. Luckily we were VIP's, so they had to let us in, even though the room was already pretty packed. Once we got through the crowd and to the backstage area, we could see all the outfits up-close, and let me tell you: there are some fierce pieces in this collection (which will be available from August by the way)! The designers Heidie and Angelica promised to send me their photographer's pics, so that you can enjoy everything in high quality. But here follow some of the highlights of my night. It was a great event, but I don't think they quite anticipated that kind of attention and interest, as the venue was way too small! We still had a fab time though, and besides the fashion shows we enjoyed some Raw Food and a free bar (that closed too early, haha!). I also had great conversations with models, stylists and designers, not to mention with my fellow bloggers. We really proved that danish plus-size bloggers are here to stay! My outfit of the night will be up tomorrow, so remember to check back for that. Also head on over to the other bloggers, as they will put up more pics of the night. Have a great Saturday everyone!

There was a massive crowd at the event! The models worked it though, here's Line in action.

Backstage, baby!
The show coordinator wore some awesome vintage Gucci boots!
Line loves the boots, too, haha!
Another gorgeous model, Stine, showing of some of the awesome clothes (and curves!)
Gorgeous two-piece in a heavy lace quality. Very nice to touch (and wear, according to Maja)
Maja and Line strutting their stuff and looking fierce.
I love how the models were all shapes, sizes and types. This rad babe, Kecia Lie, made the 
outfit look elegant, but super edgy, too.
Stylist and model caster Julie Lichtenberg looked amazing in her red dress.

  1. Jeg glæder mig SÅ meget til at se, hvad Carmakoma-damerne hoster ud af ærmerne - både dét, som kommer i butikkerne her i foråret OG Lab/27 (selvom jeg synes, det er for længe til - ØV!)

  3. Åh jeg sidder og bliver helt varm om skræddderhjertet over sådan et initiativ. Det er virkelig fedt, at der sker noget for plussize, og at det hele ikke er sådan noget konetøj. Glæder mig til at se outfitbillede:-)

  7. It seems like all ladies were just enjoyed the party. You are plus size girl but despite of it, you are so sensible about fashion and trends. I am very impressed with the way you present yourself.
