CPHFW SS21 Deck & FAQs

Scandinavia is recovering faster than most other regions from the pandemic, which means that Copenhagen Fashion Week can do what other fashion weeks can’t – host live events too.

Copenhagen Fashion Week therefore presents three days of curated and exclusive content from Scandinavia’s best brands in a new hybrid format. This means that CPHFW will launch a revamped digital platform – curating a mix of live and pre-recorded content from brands – to ensure that all content can be accessed by editors, buyers and consumers wherever in the world they may be. Also, CPHFW will present a physical “CPHFW Hub” – a centrally located hub bringing the industry together for social events, presentations, talks, interviews and more. 

We are pleased to share with you our CPHFW SS21 Deck that explains our vision and contains practical information about the CPHFW format.
Please see more here.

We have collected some FAQs as a section to turn to when i doubt, but please make direct contact with us if you have further questions.
