Under the Radar: Maiken Winther

Working in fashion for more than ten years, Maiken Winther has done most things within the business. Co-founder of the award-winning blog Brigade Noir, she is currently running her own blog NOUVELLE in addition to her job as fashion director at Danish fashion magazine Costume. We put her under the radar.

Would like to meet…
– Carine Roitfeld. She has impeccable style and I think she’s fun to hang with.

Most memorable night out…
– Paris Fashion Week the V Magazine party in September 2010. Courtney Love played live, Karl Lagerfeld was (almost) dancing right next to me, and me and my two friends had the best night out ever.

Guilty pleasure…
– Storage Wars. I can’t stop watching it… And chocolate.

Wouldn’t recommend…
– To stay at a hostel in Venice Beach just because Jim Morrison once stayed there. Bedbugs and attempted burglary – need I say more?

Before I die…
– I WILL move to Paris before I die!

Hidden talent…
– Will remain hidden. You can put down the word ‘tække’ – a few of my Danish friends will know what that means…

Just discovered…
– Bxxlght – most amazing lightboxes. I have the Bonjour one – you should check it out.

Dances to…
– RiRi. I can’t help myself. When I’m not dancing its more The Cure, Morrissey, The XX, Joy Division, and stuff like that.

Laughs at…
– My nephew. He is almost three years old and the most fun is to just watch him. And Modern Family.

What I’m wearing…
– COS. Seriously – I wear a least one item from COS every day. I’m obsessed. I mix it with Proenza Schouler, Maison Martin Margiela, Wood Wood, and Céline accessories. Mostly black.

Most visited website…
– My own probably – NOUVELLE, and then Style.com, and Bisou.

Most viewed You Tube video…
– Not a big YouTube fan… Sorry YouTube.
