August Hostel Events in Copenhagen
Generator Presents Joss Akiaki: Design & Redesign
When: 8th August from 4pm
We’re celebrating Fashion Week in a big way at Generator Copenhagen. At 5pm sharp, designer Joss Akiaki, will be showcasing her new line of beautifully designed intricate pieces in a one off fashion show just for you! Akiaki’s trademark style involves taking vintage items and redesigning them to create unique and unusual pieces which wouldn’t be found on the high-street. She already holds an established women’s line and is soon to have a range of purses and men’s clothing under her belt. Probably the most defining feature of Akiaki’s creations is that they are heavily influenced by the issue of sustainability and recycled or unused materials are a key feature in her work. Curious to know more? We took Joss aside for 10 minutes for a quick chat or come for a closer look anytime during August when we’ll be showcasing her work in our exhibition space.
During the week we’ll be collecting clothes from our hostel guests and donating them to the Red Cross at the end of Fashion week. Don’t forget to bring something spare to donate if you’re staying with us!
After the show, we’ve got DJ’s Phil Jones https://twitter.com/DJPHILJONES and Anders Tressault (https://soundcloud.com/anders-tresl) to keep you satisfied with their smooth tunes throughout the night. The talented Ashibah (http://ashibah.com/) will be live from 9.00pm, for those of you who haven’t heard their alluring sound before, it’s not to be missed. Plus, they’ll be drinks, tasty food and a graffiti artist who’ll be painting live throughout the night. We told you it was going to be big. See you there fellow fashionistas!
