Her Graduation Collection is inspired by a dream she had during a period of fasting. She dreamt that she was strolling down a street in a deserted city much like Copenhagen. Not a person was in sight, it was right at dawn and all the curtains were hanging outside the windows. As she strolled down the pavement all the sheer curtains kept brushing up against my face and they smelled faintly of old men’s perfume.She entered a house and in the lobby there was a huge bathtub with a large chandelier hanging over it. The chandelier was all covered in wax and there was a small set of stairs leading down to the bathtub, which was also drenched in stiffened wax. In a connected room with black and white checkered floor was a bowl of Anthon Bergh’s marzipan eggs, the chocolate ones covered with a hard pastel coating. Only these ones were broken and larger than they would normally be. She ate one of them and they started growing in my mouth ending up with me vomiting melted chocolate in a never-ending pace.
That’s why we can see the whole collection is so dramatic and applying quite causal silhouette.The color of this collection is in earth tone- brown, black and light grey. It just like the colors we can see in our dreams.
Annakarin Lundgren is one of the young talent showing her collections in Copenhagen fashion week.
“I like to remember things my own way.” is her philosophy of designs. She embraced her skills of working intuitive. The collection is based on a specific mood and feeling of a film which does not yet exist. It just likes a “dream” in designer’s mind. She uses the words “peaceful”, “Deserted” “Dry”, “Art-deco”, “Slow”, “Cubism”, “Futurism” and “Russian Constructivism Art” to presents her collection. That means it is an architecture, massive and feminine collection.

Anne Birkjær Bitsch takes inspiration from old french movies, and the collection reflects the mood and development of it. She used different textile experiments, colors and silhouettes in her designs to to express the essence of the deeper layers and meanings in the story. Each outfit has its own unique expression and shape .I also think that designers apply her perference of graphic or print designs in the collection to present a funny and elegant looks.
