Cecilie Manz is one of the modern Danish designers
As promised, we are continuing the theme of “Danish design”. Today we want to present a contemporary Danish fashion designer.
Who she is: Cecilie Manz
Why have we chosen just Cecilie Manz, to present immediately after the great Arne Jacobsen:
Because we want to present Danish design from different angles of the face. We want to face Cecilie Manz and Arne Jacobsen and to emphasize the development of Danish design in the last few decades. The contrast between the two will help us.
