This summer’s Copenhagen Fashion Week SS21 moved to 9–12 August 2020.
The decision to move fashion week from 4-7 August to 9-12 August 2020 was made based on a close collaboration between Copenhagen Fashion Week, the trade fairs CIFF and Revolver, and the industry organisations Dansk Fashion & Textile (DM&T) and Wear.
Since the lockdown of Denmark, the five organisations have been closely monitoring developments in society and the fashion industry, as well as discussing the many various options available for the upcoming fashion week. Several dates have been in play, with the final decision based on multiple factors, most importantly health safety and what is best for the industry.
“We’re fortunate that the Danish society is opening up much more quickly than expected, making it possible for us to hold Copenhagen Fashion Week very close to the originally scheduled dates. All of our activities will of course be set up to meet applicable regulatory requirements,” states Cecilie Thorsmark, CEO of Copenhagen Fashion Week, continuing:
“We’ve received immense support from the Scandinavian fashion industry, as Copenhagen Fashion Week continues to be an important and much-needed platform for the industry’s sales, exports and international collaborations. Maintaining the dates in the beginning of August is a decisive advantage for them, which is why we’re very pleased to announce the new dates,” concludes Thorsmark.
