"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.Hosting an international fashion week, the city of Copenhagen is a big part of what makes Copenhagen Fashion Week the desired destination it is. We love our city and we want to enable our guests to experience everything Copenhagen has to offer, whether they are locals or visitors.

Through events, unique show venues, easy logistics for participating industry professionals, a personal approach for ultimate comfort and an insider’s guide to the city, we want to showcase the city in a way that will make both Copenhagen Fashion Week and the city of Copenhagen an intimate and memorable experience.

How Are We Funded?

Copenhagen Fashion Week is a non-profit organisation run on 15% public funding and 85% commercial partnerships, with the Danish Ministry of Industry, Business and Financial Affairs as our main contributor.

Copenhagen Fashion Week is a subsidiary to the foundation Design Society alongside Danish Design Centre, INDEX: Design to Improve Life and Global Fashion Agenda. You can read more about Design Society here.
