The brilliant Danish designer, performer and artist, Henrik Vibskov is coming to Ballard to participate in the 2011 Nordic Fashion Biennale. Vibskov has long been a Blackbird favorite, and we are all counting down the days until his return to our corner of the world. Vibskov will close the 2011 Nordic Fashion Summit on Saturday, October 1st with a stunning and mesmerizing performance that is not to be missed!

Henrik Vibskov has gained international acclaim for the fashion label that bears his name, as well as for the multitude of twisted yet tantalizing universes created in relation to each collection.

Between designing new collections biannually and creating the universes surrounding them, Henrik keeps himself occupied touring the world as the drummer for electronic musician Trentemøller, and exhibiting at art museums and galleries around the world. He is currently elaborating on the ongoing art project 'The Circular Series' with visual artist Andreas Emenius, which they began work on in 2009.

Vibskov's performance at the Fashion Summit is shrouded in mystery, but rest assured that it will be sensational, ambitious, and completely original. We would expect nothing less from him.

Here is the complete schedule of the long-awaited 2011 NFB Fashion Summit, which starts next Friday, September 30th, and runs through October 1st.
