CPHFW announces a new partnership with Birger Christensen Collective as Patron of CPHFW NEWTALENT, aligning with our joint goal in strengthening and supporting the next generation of Nordic talent.
As Patron of CPHFW NEWTALENT, Birger Christensen Collective will offer financial support to the brands part of the scheme via bursaries earmarked for their showcases during the August edition of Copenhagen Fashion Week, as well as advice as part of the CPHFW NEWTALENT mentor programme.
Birger Christensen Collective's investment in the next generation through CPHFW NEWTALENT signals a milestone of a leading Danish brand actively and directly supporting the next generation through an organisation such as CPHFW, and a major step in cultivating a more collaborative and supportive ecosystem for the Nordic fashion industry.
"We are proud to collaborate with the CPHFW NEWTALENT program, supporting and connecting with the new generation of Scandinavian talent, and crucially, giving back to our community. Informed by over 150 years of heritage, Birger Christensen Collective today represents a platform for establishing and nurturing talent, both within and outside of the organization. With our own brand ventures, we acknowledge the struggles of launching a new brand: taking the creative vision and making it a reality, and we are excited to impart our experiences and expertise the next generation of incredible design talent through the CPHFW NEWTALENT platform." – Denise Christensen, CEO, Birger Christensen Collective
