With the SS25 season ahead, Copenhagen Fashion Week has announced its line up of 45 brands and institutions that will showcase as part of the official schedule in August 2024.

Copenhagen Fashion Week announces the line up for the SS25 edition, which will continue the raised momentum for the seasonal showcase. For the first time, Copenhagen Fashion Week will be incorporating runway shows and presentations as two formats that will encompass the official show and presentation schedule. This merge will allow for a more expressive offering towards formats, partaking brands and reflect the evolving creative landscape of the Nordic fashion industry and enunciate Copenhagen Fashion Week's position as one of the leading fashion weeks globally.

Presenting key international and Nordic established leaders and emerging innovators this season, the SS25 brand line up introduces Berner Kühl to the CPHFW NEWTALENT programme, joining Alectra Rothschild / MASCULINA, Stamm and Rolf Ekroth, with a host of returning brands to the schedule inclusive of A. Roege Hove, (di)vision, Jade Cropper, Latimmier and Rabens Saloner, as well as a curated selection of exciting new names across the 4 days of shows and presentations. The presence of reputable Nordic names set against international vanguards curated across a four day programme of 45 shows and presentations further underline the international positioning Copenhagen Fashion Week holds within the fashion calendar worldwide. SS25 furthermore marks the announcement of the Zalando Visionary Award winner, Sinéad O’Dwyer. The August edition will see Sinéad O’Dwyer present their Spring/Summer collection as a runway show as part of the celebrated prize, highlighting their directional and purposeful vision and underlining their dedication to impactful excellence.

Copenhagen Fashion Week is proud to announce the lineup for the SS25 edition taking place 5 – 9 August 2024 encompassing 45 brands and institutions that have been approved by the official Show & Presentation Committee and Sustainability Committee. Following such a unique screening process, 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.

“Against a relentless economic, political and environmental climate that has not failed to throw continuous obstacles into the face of this industry, we have never been so proud to represent so many tenacious, driven and purposeful brands this season. With a host of new faces, a welcome return of many beloved ones, a celebration of Nordic and a spotlight on our international friends, this season will prove why Copenhagen Fashion Week continues to grow not only as an organisation and a global activation but as a way of thinking and state of mind.” - Cecilie Thorsmark, CEO Copenhagen Fashion Week
