AW23 Copenhagen Fashion Week A Roege Hove Runway 4 5 James Cochran 30

Copenhagen Fashion Week (CPHFW) is the biggest fashion week in Northern Europe, held biannually in January/February and August.

Who are we?

Regarded as the fifth global fashion week, Copenhagen Fashion Week welcomes leading international press, buyers and industry leaders across their global network to four days of shows, presentations, installations and events alongside the trade show CIFF x Revolver.

Sustainability is the core focus for Copenhagen Fashion Week, striving towards making substantial changes to inspire and encourage the industry to accelerate their sustainability efforts. In January 2020, Copenhagen Fashion Week unveiled an ambitious three-year Sustainability Action Plan, presenting an innovative system of requirements for brands to be part of the official schedule that was implemented at the AW23 edition of CPHFW. The Action Plan is revised and released every three years, positioning CPHFW as the leading fashion week within the sustainability field.

"Sustainability is the core tenet to our vision of Copenhagen Fashion Week as a forward thinking representation of Nordic talent to our global community," - Cecilie Thorsmark, CEO Copenhagen Fashion Week

How are we funded?

Copenhagen Fashion Week is a foundation funded by industry contributions and commercial partnerships with Strategic Partner Zalando as the main contributor.

The commercial partnerships Copenhagen Fashion Week takes part in are based on a shared vision of sustainability and innovation, and are set in place to ensure the best possible experience for participating brands, press and buyers. All commercial posts are marked with a mandatory disclaimer of sponsored content, in accordance with Danish law, and is created in line with Copenhagen Fashion Week’s ethical charter.
