Located in the heart of Copenhagen, Margrethe-Skolen is a leading fashion school in Denmark that provides a range of specialized design courses, including fashion & design, pattern construction and fashion drawing. In addition, we offer a two-year further vocational design course, divided into four semesters. In more than 80 years, we have educated many of the leading designers, stylists and business people within the Danish and international fashion world.
The aim of Margrethe-Skolen is to train designers who with their resources will be capable of developing a quality product encompassing identity and personality. Designers who have learnt to observe and analyse our environment, so that they are able to comply optimally with customers’ wishes. Today, Margrethe-Skolen is internationally known and respected for, as formulated by Createur Erik Mortensen: "not only having interpreted and taught about fashion, but also having insisted on inspiring students to discover the heart of all forms of creativity, fashion and esthetics. The school has maintained an admirable level of prestige which is too high for those who intend to accept the easiest solutions."
Fashion is an expression of our time and place. Clothes must both reflect and provoke society. Throughout the education, Margrethe-Skolen seeks to develop esthetic, creative and technical premises to strengthen the students in their creativity and their ability to establish a point of view. The tuition aims to open up for new horizons and thereby stimulate the students towards innovation in the individual design process.
Fashion and trends move constantly through rapid change in order to keep the consumers interested. Students must be inquisitive, investigative and willing to experiment. Their clothes must reflect society and show a deeper understanding of the world around them. Art, culture, sociology, esthetics and philosophy are all aspects of this deeper study.

Margrethe-Skolens strength lies in the creative approach to education in design. The positive, dynamic and creative atmosphere of the school stimulates the students to develop their personality, originality and individuality. This is a development which, through fundamental, factual and creative studies, endows the graduating student with an ability to realise design projects for industry, brands or their own production.
Achieving this result demands exertion and stamina. Students have to endure hard work to gain the basic tools of the trade in order to create new forms and show originality in their designs. They must be clever enough in their sketching to give expression to both creative and technical drawings, so that these can be used as guidelines in the process towards the optimal solution.
Graduates of Margrethe-Skolen have achieved great recognition and success both nationally and internationally. Amongst others, can be named: Margit Brandt, Henriette Zobel, Rutzou, Bendikte Utzon, Sand, Rene Gurskov, Rikke Ruhwald and Bitte Kai Rand.
Her Royal Highness Princess Benedikte of Denmark is the schools protector and has established a fund from which the annual ‘Benedikte Prize’ is awarded. It was an honour and a pleasure when the princess herself graduated from the school and she has kept close contact with the institution since that time.
Margrethe-Skolens students are selected for their strong personality, their creativity and their willingness to develop concrete projects in direct collaboration with renowned fashion houses and firms. The schools international environment leads to a high degree of creative emulation among students, which can be used during the education and after education. The intention is that students should be able to combine their natural creativity with fashion techniques, so that the challenges faced in working life can be solved as professionally as possible. At the same time it will be the students’ duty to contribute to modern society with innovation and quality.
"It has given me a lot to study at Margrethe-Skolen, as we have worked with everything in fashion: design process, layout, marketing, sewing features, tailoring and concept. In addition, we have worked with a lot of different and talented designers from the fashion industry for many of our projects at the school. So in short resume, we have been all around in relation to fashion and the fashion industry, which has given us great professional skills and an overview of new emerging trends and opportunities."
- Christopher K. Ellemann, Fearless Fashion
"I think that the schools past as a tailoring school is an advantage, as we with our technical ability can communicate designs and cuttings in a different way than seen in other design schools."
