Copenhagen Fashion Week has confirmed it will be taking place on 9-12 August, having been pushed back from its previous date of 4-7 August.
The decision on the date has been made jointly by Copenhagen Fashion Week, the trade fairs CIFF and Revolver, and the industry organisations Dansk Fashion & Textile (DM&T) and Wear.
Since the lockdown of Denmark, the five organisations said they have been closely monitoring developments in society and the fashion industry, as well as discussing the many various options available for the upcoming fashion week. Several dates have been in play, with the final decision based on multiple factors, “most importantly health safety and what is best for the industry”.
“We’re fortunate that the Danish society is opening up much more quickly than expected, making it possible for us to hold Copenhagen Fashion Week very close to the originally scheduled dates. All of our activities will of course be set up to meet applicable regulatory requirements,” stated Cecilie Thorsmark, CEO of Copenhagen Fashion Week.
“We’ve received immense support from the Scandinavian fashion industry, as Copenhagen Fashion Week continues to be an important and much-needed platform for the industry’s sales, exports and international collaborations. Maintaining the dates in the beginning of August is a decisive advantage for them, which is why we’re very pleased to announce the new dates,” she added.
The event is now taking applications from exhibitors with an application deadline of 15 June.
