Copenhagen claims record-breaking catwalk


The Danish capital of Copenhagen has played host to a record-breaking fashion catwalk…or at least probably.

Organisers of the city’s fashion week claim the 1.6 kilometre runway is the world’s longest ever but that is yet to be confirmed by officials from the Guinness Book of Records.

100,000 spectators lined the streets to look at the beautiful people showcasing the latest in cutting-edge Scandanavian fashion.

High heels and heavy rain presented a potential occupational hazard but the models struck a pose like there was nothing to it, strutting their stuff without taking a tumble.

Most of the participants were professionals, although a number of amateurs took part after being spotted on the street or on the social networking site Facebook.

Copenhagen Fashion Week comes to an end on Sunday evening.
