Who Are We?

"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

What Is Our Strategy?

In 2017, Copenhagen Fashion Week went through a strategic process with the participation of key stakeholders in the fashion industry. The aim of the strategy was to strengthen Copenhagen as the epicentre of Nordic fashion and to establish Copenhagen Fashion Week as the leading fashion week in the Nordics. In 2019, Copenhagen Fashion Week became the only fashion week in Scandinavia and will keep striving towards maintaining and develop Copenhagen Fashion Week — to continue being the strongest platform possible for Nordic fashion brands to thrive.

In 2018, Copenhagen Fashion Week got a new management which brought about a highly intensified focus on sustainability. Newly appointed CEO Cecilie Thorsmark established a sustainability advisory board of industry professionals and welcomed onboard knowledge partner In Futurum to help shape the sustainable development of Copenhagen Fashion Week.

In January 2020, Copenhagen Fashion Week launched an ambitious sustainability strategy which you can access below.
