At the culmination of this summer’s Copenhagen Fashion Week, a special fashion event took place in Copenhagen, Denmark on August 14. It was the world record for the longest catwalk ever.

When tourists and Copenhageners took a stroll down the famous pedestrian street “Stroget” in the center of Copenhagen, they were in for a surprise. The street was transformed into one long glamorous runway where 220 models walked 1 mile (1.609 km) and presented the best of Scandinavian fashion this fall. The world famous Danish supermodel Helena Christensen welcomed the people and opened the catwalk.

Today, the canal flows gently though Frederiksværk, giving the town a particular charm. The many well-preserved old buildings along the canal create a beautiful link between the past and the present.

During the past few years, Copenhagen Fashion Week has developed into a large and renowned event with an international scope. It attracts more than 50,000 buyers, designers and global press.

Not only the industry and buyers are invited, tourists and Copenhageners are also invited to join the party when Copenhagen Fashion Festival takes to the streets. Large parts of Copenhagen are transformed into a fashion Mecca of shows, exhibitions, concerts, trend shows and parties.

According to the event promoters, while the “fashion for the people” concept reflects Danish fashion, the clothes are wearable and affordable.

With the world’s greatest catwalk and a fashion week growing in size, Copenhagen may be trying to become the world’s fifth fashion mecca, following New York, Milan, Paris and London.
