Copenhagen Fashion Week announces the line up for the SS24 edition of Copenhagen Fashion Week, which will signal a moment of expansion with shows commencing a day earlier, on the Monday afternoon.
Showcasing both established leaders and emerging innovators this season, SS24 will present new designers in the CPHFW NEWTALENT programme, returning designers to the schedule as well as the winner of the newly announced Zalando Visionary Award.
Today, Copenhagen Fashion Week (CPHFW) is proud to announce the line up for the SS24 edition taking place 7-11 August 2023 encompassing 31 brands that have been approved by the CPHFW Show Committee and CPHFW Sustainability Committee. Following such a unique screening process, CPHFW brands have been selected both from fashion design criteria as well as a full value chain perspective, as they have been screened against Copenhagen Fashion Week’s 18 Minimum Standards.
CEO Cecilie Thorsmark states:
“Continuing on our debut season of the Sustainability Requirements, we are greatly excited to showcase brands for this upcoming spring/summer edition of Copenhagen Fashion Week that are living up to our Minimum Standards. From brands that are new to our schedule to those who have been part before, it is notable their dedication to operate more responsibly. Furthermore, as we are welcoming several newcomers this edition, it is apparent that Copenhagen Fashion Week remain attractive not only in the nordic brands but also beyond”
In order to support the growth of the fashion week, CPHFW will expand into the Monday, with the Opening Ceremony to open the season on the Monday afternoon and to follow with a selection of key shows. Furthermore, this will allow for a break to be added across the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, allowing for further support towards the burgeoning schedule of presentations, events, showrooms and trade fairs.
CEO Cecilie Thorsmark states:
“As our fashion weeks continue to grow, we too must expand into the wider part of the week in order to give the deserved time and space for the exceptional line up we have planned for SS24 across shows, presentations, events and activations. This growth is symbolic furthermore of our organisations’ reach and reputation on a global scale, of which we are so thankful for our continued supporters and partners and brands.”
