Wood Wood and Han Kjøbenhavn return to Copenhagen Fashion Week
Copenhagen Fashion Week is pleased to welcome both Wood Wood and Han Kjøbenhavn back to the Copenhagen show scene after several seasons abroad.
Founded in 2002, Wood Wood quickly became a household brand in the Danish fashion industry. After many seasons with much applauded shows in Copenhagen, Wood Wood chose to grow their international presence by showing their SS18 collection at Milan Fashion Week, and in London the three following seasons. Wood Wood is now returning home for AW20 and we are beyond excited.
“After being on the official schedule in Milan and London for the last four seasons, we felt the time was right for a return to our roots and where it all began for Wood Wood 17 years ago. Wood Wood has always strived to be an international brand, and we’ve always represented Copenhagen, and what the city reflects, it’s what our core DNA stands for, quality, creativity and attitude. We’re glad to see that Copenhagen fashion week has evolved alongside the city and put us up there as an extraordinary week of the season. We have the best design and production team we could ask for, and we’re very excited to show everyone what we’ve been working on the past 6 months, we’re super proud of the whole team behind our brand,” states Karl-Oskar Olsen, co-founder of Wood Wood.
After two seasons in Paris, Han Kjøbenhavn is also back in Copenhagen, but even in their absence, the brand continued to be heavily influenced by their motherland. Inspired by the designer’s upbringing in suburban Copenhagen, the past AW19 collection named “Fairytale Denmark” showcased an idealised perception of Denmark. Founded in 2008, Han Kjøbenhavn has been an integral part of the Danish fashion industry and we are very excited to welcome them back this winter to Copenhagen Fashion Week.
“We have been away from CPHFW the last 2 seasons, where we have had a more international focus — which is something we will continue having. But Copenhagen is still an integral part of our DNA and the development of Copenhagen Fashion Week, and Danish fashion in general, is important to us. We think that the format has become much more defined, and the focus is now on the things that are relevant for the growth of each individual brand, which is what a fashion week is really about,” states Jannik Wikkelsø Davidsen, Founder and Creative Director at Han Kjøbenhavn.
