Zizzi "Fashion Has No Size" SS15 Fashion Show

Miss Denise Bidot in the spotlight
I loved this floral print, and especially the long shirt dress. The trench is looking amazing, too - and how about that blue skirt and floral top?! Probably my favourite outfit of the show.
Yellow is making another comeback next spring - especially paired with grey. I really did like the grey stuff, and also the sporty vibe, but I'm still working on the yellow. I really loved the bags though!
More yellow and grey combinations of both W.O.W and regular Zizzi items. I loved Sharon Dumfries look with the yellow W.O.W crop top and grey tracksuit pants!

Så er der mere fra modeugen! Som de fleste af jer nok ved, så holdt Zizzi atter et stort show. Denne gang foregik det i de smukke omgivelser i den gamle Nikolaj Kirke. Udover at det var uudholdeligt varmt, så var det en fantastisk location til et modeshow. Tidligere på dagen havde Zizzi holdt et bloggerevent, hvor de havde præsenteret os for de kommende kollektioner og for deres nye, spændende foretag: et sublabel med navnet Wardrobe of Wonders, også kaldet "W.O.W". Kollektionen er skabt af Femmes Regionales, som tidligere bl.a. har arbejdet med Baum und Pferdgarten, og det var meget tydeligt at der var kommet nye boller på suppen. Kollektionen er intet mindre end fantastisk, og jeg var spændt på at se den på catwalken. Zizzi havde denne gang valgt at lave et mere modeorienteret show, i stil med almindelige modeshows, så der var kun en kort gæsteoptræden forinden showstart - hvor der ellers de sidste gange har været flere musikindslag i løbet af showet. Det er et godt tiltag synes jeg, da jeg gerne ser at plus-size brands bliver taget ligeså seriøst som "almindelige" brands, men jeg var alligevel lidt overrasket da showet stoppede efter 20 minutter. Det lader til at vi allesammen lige skal vænne os til det! Hvorom alting er, var det dog et rigtig fint show. Tøjet var utrolig lækkert, og der er helt vildt mange ting fra de kommende kollektioner, som jeg bare må have fingre i - især hele W.O.W kollektionen. Oven over ser I nogle af de outfits jeg bedst kunne lide. Det eneste jeg egentlig ærgrede mig over var stylingen, for med så lækkert tøj, havde jeg gerne set en lidt bedre styling af modellernes hår og make-up. Jeg forstod heller ikke alle de bælter og smykker som man havde stylet tøjet med, og der var mange sammensætninger som jeg ikke var den store fan af. Men i sidste ende ligger fokus jo på selve tøjet - og det var fantastisk! Jeg glæder mig til at style det på min egen måde, og sådan skal det jo også gerne være. Et stort bravo skal lyde til Zizzi herfra - de er bestemt ved at have fat i den lange ende, og jeg sætter utrolig stor pris på, at de er med til at rykke grænserne for, hvad der er "acceptabelt" inden for plus-size mode. De er ved at blive forgangsmænd og fanebærere, og de tager et ansvar for at få plus-size kvinders stil op på et endnu højere niveau. Jeg glæder mig allerede til modeugen i februar 2015, for jeg er sikker på at det kun bliver endnu bedre med tiden!

Here's more from Fashion Week! As most of you may know, Zizzi had another big show. This time it was in the beautiful surroundings of an old church in Copenhagen. Besides being unbearably hot, it was an amazing location for a fashion show. Earlier that day, Zizzi had hosted a blogger event where they had introduced us to the upcoming collections and to their new sublabel called Wardrobe of Wonders, in short: "W.O.W". The capsule collection was designed by Femmes Regionales, who have previously worked with big brands like Baum und Pferdgarten, and it was clear to see that things are changing. The collection is beyond amazing, and I was excited to see it on the runway. Zizzi chose to do a more fashion minded show this time around, more like the "regular" fashion shows, so there was only a short guest performance before the show started - where as there have been several musical breaks during the last two shows. I think that's the right way to go, as I'd love to see plus-size brands being taken just as seriously as "regular" brands, but I was still somewhat suprised when the show ended after just 20 minutes. I guess we all just have to get used to it! However, it was a nice show. The clothes were gorgeous, and there are so many things I can't wait to get my hands on - especially the entire W.O.W collection. Above you'll see some of my favourite outfits. The only thing that kind of bothered me was the styling, because with clothes as gorgeous as these, I would have liked to see better hair and make-up on the models. I also didn't get all the belts and jewelry that the outfits had been styled with, and there were some outfits that I just wasn't a big fan of. But at the end of the day the focus was on the clothes themselves - and they were amazing! I can't wait to style them my own way, which is exactly how it should be. A huge applause to Zizzi from me - they are definitely getting there, and I appreciate the fact that they constantly challenge the boundaries of what is "acceptable" for plus-size women to wear. They are turning into front runners in regards to plus-size fashion, and they are taking responsibility for getting plus-size women's style to the next level. I'm already excited for Fashion Week in February 2015, as I'm sure it'll only continue to get better and better!
