around scandinavia are presenting their creations for next summer in the audience is danish fashion reporter cilla henning she knows her way around europe scout walks and can tell us what's unique about fashion from the north to name in fashion you can eat where it ought to doesn't it's not so complicated you can mix it in different ways and if. it's like it's good every day you can use it not like only a cup of coffee from the weekend but to use it every day we pike around and even appeal to everyone to do that and we have a really kind of easy going and laid back to talk about it so scandinavian style is comfortable and stylish these principles have guided designers at labels like ghani or sam soon some soon as well as newer competitors will smile and be on. a young fashion capital city but that said we still have a really good approach to having this get made and also me it's like being a have
a personal style everybody is kind about finding your own personality and just and i think that kind of give us a lot we don't just want to be you know the girl with the bat i want to be the one but i trust that the things in our own direction wardell way. the danes like to be cosy and comfortable or as they say the humans world happiness report often places the danes ahead or just behind the norwegians and finns as the world's happiest people just danish fashion reflects that just scandinavian fashion make people happy people don't seem stressed out much behind the scenes here at the fashion week whether for the label blushes opening show or at the horse while their navel not even when things have fallen behind schedule. then months less than if you let stress take over nothing good can come of it anyway that's why it's so important for us to keep calm. and achieve our goals. the designers are often inspired by street style so alongside more natural tones lots of vibrant
hughes seen on the streets of europe's northernmost cities were on the catwalk at copenhagen fashion week it's a concept that resonates with customers. personally and makes me very happy it's a way for people to express themselves and also for me so it makes me have it to see all these different clothes and different style to put out there i just enjoy tristen up really nice i just think it makes me feel good when i look good as i think fashion makes. because it's about colors it's expression on people you know the what you wear is the kind of making a sick note and i think it has a huge impact on how we approach and look at people it makes you happy because it's a way to express yourself and a week to show the world who you are and there's no wrong way of doing it it's
just showing your personal style i think a question can also. it can also make you feel a lot of other things because it's also an art form i think but for me definitely it can create some kind of happiness. so what makes the scandinavian designer so successful does being in a good mood help you be more creative. didn't from blanche says it does. to me inspiration is everywhere but i think i work best when i'm happy and i work best when i'm a monk people i work best in the friendly happy environment and with people i love and trust because then i put my work and my marks down and i open my senses and to me that's the best way to be creative look when she. positivity are very important to us both in the way we live and how we create our collections.
but there's more to it than that according to me a couple gor a designer at samson and samson. were definite to sign for people to being able to move around to bicycle to work. to make their life easier and maybe in that way make them happy about that they signed in the end. everyone here seems to agree fashion can make you happy a simple message that will hopefully make its way from copenhagen fashion week to the rest of the world. where here in berlin at the moment is very clear that our us areas possible it is just unbelievably warm in the german capital but also elsewhere in europe more now in today's express. as

when i was young it's a long time ago i used to go in the subway and make the bowings of people in the subway. and then you know i have a little note book in my pocket and not not do anything for me it just was i'll pass on it it's interesting to know that it knows of a face or something but that doesn't mean i'm going to do it here since that usually under company i go away from nato. because. it's interesting but that's that maybe for a photo i felt for me a. geo on the coast deserved shaded from the sun by public because so for ten years she was the partner of news of one of the twentieth century's most famous painters and had two children with him. it didn't end well for the spanish
master she lower left him alleging infidelities and abuse. because i didn't take it very well. francoise you know painted before she met the castle and continued afterwards for the rest of her life for her that creation was a form of self affirmation. or works reflect the spirit of a century they're neither radically abstract nor comfortably figurative but emphasize color space and rhythm she love fun of her own path. bending is it is essentially they would not bend i would not be that that's what i can say. does it does nothing to do with where my bending is good or

but with their own their own power sort of spin. france was. a woman who many has always been determined to pursue her own idea of art. the next artist has also worked hard for success i'm talking about rick astley thanks to his hits like a never gonna give you up together forever the british musician rose to world fame and the eighties and became a millionaire in his early twenty's so he treated himself to a long hiatus of about twenty five years but the break is over and now he has released his second album after a comeback it's called beautiful life have a listen. a. brick actually has released
