Jeg har brugt min weekend i selskab med 20 lækre damer, som allesammen skal være med til at rykke grænser under denne uges modeuge i København. På torsdag kl. 15, under uret på Københavns Hovedbanegård, vil der poppe et fantastisk show op - og I er allesammen inviterede! Carmakoma har i samarbejde med Landsforeningen mod Selvskade og Spiseforstyrrelser arrangeret showet "I Picture You / You Picture Me", hvor modeller i en bred vifte af størrelser vil fremvise Carmakomas efterårs- og vinterkollektion, samt sætte fokus på sundere og mere realistiske kropsidealer. I weekenden stod den på prøver både lørdag og søndag, hvor pigerne skulle lære den fantastiske koreografi og prøve de outfits de skal have på i showet. Det var dejligt atter at være med helt tæt på, og jeg er så utrolig spændt på torsdagens show. Tøjet er lækkert og edgy som altid, modellerne er labre og koreografien er noget af det bedste jeg længe har set. Det bliver så cool! Derfor vil jeg virkelig også opfordre jer til at komme, hvis I har mulighed for det. Ovenover får I en eksklusiv smagsprøve på, hvad det er der skal foregå, og får forhåbentlig en snert af weekendens gode stemning med. Jeg havde nogle superhyggelige dage, og det var fedt at hænge ud med nogle af mine skønne veninder som skal gå i showet, samt at styrke det fantastiske bånd og det samarbejde, som jeg har med Carmakoma. Jeg kan næsten ikke vente til på torsdag! Ses vi?

I've spent the weekend with 20 gorgeous ladies, who will all take part in pushing boundaries during Copenhagen Fashion Week this week. This Thursday at 3pm under the clock at Copenhagen Central Station, there'll be an amazing pop-up show - and everyone's invited! Carmakoma has planned a statement show with the danish NGO against selfharm and eating disorders, titled "I Picture You / You Picture Me", where models in a variety of sizes will showcase Carmakoma's autumn- and winter collection, while bringing attention to healthier and more realistic body ideals. This weekend was filled with rehearsals both Saturday and Sunday, where the girls had to learn the amazing choreography and get fitted in their outfits for the show. It was really nice once again taking part of the production up close, and I'm so excited for the final result. The clothes are fantastic and edgy as usual, the models are hot, and the choreography is one of the strongest I've seen in a while. It's gonna be so cool! That's why I strongly encourage you to stop by, if you happen to be in Copenhagen on Thursday. In the pictures above is a sneak peek at what's gonna go down, and hopefully they also portray the good vibes of this weekend. I had some amazing days, and it was so good hanging out with some of my gorgeous friends that are walking in the show, as well as strenghtening the great bond and the collaboration between Carmakoma and I. Thursday can't come soon enough. See you there?
