Henrik Vibskov


Danish fashion designer Henrik Vibskov is known for a multitude of twisted yet tantalizing universes created in each collection. He has produced more than 20 collections for men and women and for the past decade has presented shows at Men’s Fashion Week in Paris where he was the only Scandinavian designer in 2012. His designs have been worn by such performers as M.I.A., Kanye West, Björk, The Arctic Monkeys, Sigur Ros, Franz Ferdinand, Lou Reed, LCD Soundsystem, and Devendra Banhart, to name a few. With visual artist Andreas Emenius, Vibskov has created The Fringe Projects, ten works in the form of installations, performances, and video self-portraits exploring illusion, surface, and movement. The Circular Series, the duo’s newest series of artworks, focuses on identity and inclusion. The duo has displayed their works in Paris, Copenhagen, London, Milan, Zurich, Rotterdam, Washington, Bremen and Middleburg.

Nordic Cool 2013 is presented in cooperation with the Nordic Council of Ministers and Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden.
