Every February and August, Copenhagen hosts the Nordic Region's largest fashion event, Copenhagen Fashion Week. As industry movers and shakers get dressed and ready for a week of sartorial extravagance, the runways come alive with a diverse cast of fashion talents — Danish and international, new and established, classy and street. Meanwhile, the four trade fairs, Vision, Gallery, CIFF/CIFF KIDS and CPH Kids, boast upwards of 1,100 exhibitors representing more than 2,400 international collections in all categories of style.

Danish fashion is known for its unique take on design, which marries modern elegance to playful aesthetics and conceptions of dress. A contemporary approach to fashions both feminine and masculine is expressed in fresh silhouettes, innovative fabrics and sharp colour schemes, all in unsurpassed qualities. These are only a few of the reasons why more than 60,000 international buyers, designers and press attend Copenhagen Fashion Week twice a year.

Running from August 8-12, this summer's Copenhagen Fashion Week is set for a strong offering of Danish and international fashion talent. The programme invites international newcomers like French Connection and Odeur to take on the likes of Anne Sofie Madsen and SAND in showcasing fresh style sensibilities.

Copenhagen Fashion Week is for the SS13 fashion week only relocating their official show venue to TAP 2 in the old Carlsberg brewery. The catwalk will be back in the City Hall in January 2013. 

“We're pleased to have so much young talent on the schedule to join the ranks of established forces like Designers Remix, By Malene Birger and Henrik Vibskov. Peter Jensen and Wood Wood return to bring us more of their underground sophistication, and opening the official venue at TAP 2 is the young and bold Danish newcomer Freya Dalsj√∂," says Anne Christine Persson, Development Director of Copenhagen Fashion Week.

This season also sees a reinvention of Copenhagen Fashion Week's website with new features that make the site even easier to use. Head to www.copenhagenfashionweek.com to check out the new design and explore this season's exciting schedule.
