Copenhagen is known for its spectacular gastronomy and street food culture and its hip architectural and home designs. However, in the last few years, Denmark has become synonymous to minimalistic and clean-lined fashion labels and designers that have been featured in high gloss fashion magazines such as Vogue and Elle and their clothes worn by fashionistas around the world.
This was my first visit to Copenhagen and I was so overtaken by its beauty, its youthful vibe and of course the food! There’s so much to do and to take in, in this City and I tried to see and experience as much as my 3-day stay allowed. Here is my collection of photos from Copenhagen.
Enjoy and stay tuned!
