Yesterday was the best plussize event in the Copenhagen Fashion Week (ok, it was probably the only one, but either way, it was great!): the Lab27 by Carmakoma launch party.
The new Carmakoma sublabel is an inclusive label that ranges from size EU34 (UK4/US2) to EU54 (UK26/US24). I love the idea that all women regardless of size can wear the same clothes! And what a great collection it is! It has the edgy, sleek sillhouettes that is Carmakoma's trademark, it has a lot of black though with a pop of colour (this time red! Can't wait till August 2012 when it hit the stores!).
At the event, where I went with 3 other plussize bloggers: Rikke of Sticky Sweet Danish, Ditte of Marilyn's Closet and Tanja of Miss Cherry Lipz, we had a chance to chat with the Carmakoma designers: Heidie Lykke and Angelica Weiss. They are very dedicated and I really admire their drive to make great designer clothes for the curvy body.
We also had the opportunity (once we had played the fashion blogger card and pushed our way to the backstage area) to get up close with the models and feel the rich beautiful fabrics. Both the clothes and the models looked fabulous. Watch out for these beautiful ladies: Maja Volmark and Line Mikkelsen.
All in all we had a great night filled with fun, fa(t)shion and free drinks ;-)

The looks for the first Lab27 collection! I want it all!
Beautiful red lips on Maja Volmark and Line Mikkelsen (I can't wait to get my hands on Line's jacket it is a very nice bouclé Chanel-ish quality)

Drinks (ok, maybe not the most posh fashion blogger beverage, but I love it ;-)) and clutches.
