ABOUT Henrik Vibskov
Henrik Vibskov is a renowned and award-winning Danish fashion designer, artist, curator and musician. Although commonly associated with fashion and the twisted yet tantalising universes created around each collection, Henrik’s creative practice covers multiple artforms. Working in the intersection between art and design, his work ranges from fashion collections to installation, product design, performances and exhibitions, always exploring creativity without limits and adapting the design approach to the changing contexts.
Since his graduation from Central St Martin’s in 2001, he has produced more than 40 fashion collections and exhibited in several international design fairs, festivals and museums all over the world, including MoMA in New York, Palais de Tokyo in Paris, The 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa and the ICA in London, to name a few. He has been a member of the Chambre Syndicale de la Mode Masculine since January 2003 and has been active on the official show schedule of the Paris Men's Fashion Week for 20 years. Alongside his work in the studio, Henrik is a Professor at DSKD, sitting on juries and giving lectures at institutions such as Central Saint Martins in London, Parsons New York and the Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Art amongst others.
Next to the biannual fashion collections, he has also designed costumes for numerous operas and performances, including collaborations with Hotel Pro Forma, the Oslo Opera House, The Swedish National Ballet and the Brussels Opera House. Most recently he designed the costumes for the ballet “Hammer” by Alexander Ekman at the Gothenburg Opera in Sweden.
As a musician, Henrik keeps himself occupied as a drummer currently with his band Luksus, who are to perform at Syd For Solen Festival 2023 in Copenhagen. He has also played with Hess is More, his own project Mountain Yorokobu, Mikael Simpson and Trentemøller, who he toured the world with for 6 years.
