Natasha Skou is the new PR and Marketing Manager over at CHP Vision and Terminal 2. I met her briefly, right before the Designer's Nest fashion show last month. I've got no photos of her from the day (dammit!) as there wasn't time nor room, for a fashion shoot before the event. But her outfit; composed of a blazer with a casual shirt underneath, a pair of jeans (I think it was jeans or slim fitting slacks) and funky boots; sorta reminded me of Lexington's AW 11 collection.
Skou, who has several years of experience working in advertising, marketing, public relations, and the music industry, was appointed to her new position in December last year. And this is what she had to say in our quick Q & A:
WHAT CAN WE BE LOOKING FORWARD TO IN FEBRUARY, AND HOW WILL THIS YEAR'S EVENTS DIFFER FROM THE ONES IN THE PAST? Please see press releases. But one thing we have done this year is a special treat for all visitors; free concierge service.
WHICH AREAS HAVE YOU SPECIFICALLY PAID EXTRA ATTENTION TO AS A RESULT OF YOUR OWN BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE? As I have only been working for Copenhagen Fashion Fairs for two months, I haven’t had a lot of time to put my “personal touch” on the upcoming fair. But in the future I will put some work in getting a lot of attention to CPH Vision & Terminal-2. We have two fairs held in spectacular surroundings, which is the base for business and pleasure at the same time. I am very interested in starting new initiatives and see great possibilities in working across the industries, like music, print and online media.
