A prestigious award which honors design students who show exemplary promise in areas of creativity, execution, and wearability, Designer's Nest is always a highlight of Copenhagen Fashion Week. Like a window into future of Scandinavian fashion, Designer's Nest shines a light on the biggest future stars from all over the region. This season, designers from Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and Iceland were joined by a special presentation from Japanese students from UEDA College of Fashion, who were not competing for the top prize, but were simply acting as style ambassadors from Japan.

2. Anna Sarasoja, AALTO University of Art & Design, Finland
