Pitti Guest Nation
A country which, over the past few seasons - and through an interesting platform such as the Copenhagen Fashion Week together with all the tradeshows held in the capital city - has created a niche for itself among the most interesting places when it comes to cutting edge fashion. The designers who will be participating in the special project dedicated to Denmark were selected by Tom Stiefel-Kristensen, on the basis of a criterion that highlights their different modes of creative expression as well as their “Scandinavian soul”.

Anne VestBack to top
Anne Vest Furhouse consider our selves a very strong North European high-end fashion brand. We stride to create clothes, which is as much about sculpturing your silhouette as it is showing you as this vivid, urban and sophisticated beauty. A sophisticated look with a wink of darkness, that gives you the freedom to grow your individuality. The DNA of Anne Vest Furhouse is foremost a new angle on the whole fur designs – to emphasize the modern urban wardrobe by implicating the contrasts of the dark rock attitude versus the feminine and poetic couture look.
