Award-winning Designer shares his Insider-knowledge
David Andersen, a true Copenhagener and award-winning fashion designer, with a label in his own name, shares his insider-knowledge of Copenhagen with OUT and OutTraveler’s readers.
“I choose to live to live right in the heart of the city, on the famous ‘Strøget’ pedestrian shopping street. It can be noisy. It may be a hassle. But the energy can’t be beat,” says David Andersen.
When the savvy designer wanders off to be moved, he prefers the creative energy of the Latin Quarter, the ‘free town’ Christiania or packing a picnic basket and traveling up north to the world-renowned Louisiana Museum of Modern Art.
