Copenhagen Fashion Week is delighted to announce the continuation of our partnership with the Wessel & Vett Fashion Prize as the Bursary Partner of CPHFW NEWTALENT.
Originally known as the Magasin du Nord Fashion Prize, the Wessel & Vett Fashion Prize is dedicated to recognizing the skill and expertise of Danish fashion designers and brands. Established in 2012 by the Wessel & Vett Foundation, the prize embodies the foundation's fundamental values of entrepreneurship and fashion innovation. It stands as a testament to the foundation's commitment to fostering Danish design talent and building on the heritage of Magasin du Nord as a historical fashion institution. The Wessel & Vett Foundation's board members are descendants of the department store's founders, Theodor Wessel and Emil Vett.
With their role as Bursary Partner of CPHFW NEWTALENT, The Wessel & Vett Foundation offers financial support to the brands part of the scheme via bursaries earmarked for their showcases during the August and February editions of Copenhagen Fashion Week. Their investment in emerging talent through their contribution to CPHFW NEWTALENT demonstrates their continued commitment in ensuring a vibrant and innovative future for the fashion industry.
