Emerging Designers: Trine Wackerhausen
As you may have gathered, I'm a big fan of new designers. I think that there is a point where you are at your most creative and thats usually before you have to create designs that are commercially viable because lets face it, you've gotta make money if you want to continue working. Anyway, my magazine habit lead me to discover the magazine Indie-The Independent Style Magazine which had an article on the Danish fashion designer Trine Wackerhausen and her label Wackerhaus. Her designs are just my thing, minimal but still with that hint of femininity. Incidentally, femininity and masculinity and its contrasts is something that Trine wants to concentrate more on in her collections, having been intrigued by both strength and masculinity. Within her designs, there is definately evidence of strong silhouettes with defined shoulders adding an edge to an otherwise simple outfit or flashes of shimmer on simple dresses. With 2 shows already at Copenhagen Fashion Week, I think we can expect to see more of Trine and I'm looking forward to it.
