When you think of Fashion Week, the ‘big four’ come to mind first – but there’s another city to pay attention to. If you haven’t been keeping tabs on Copenhagen Fashion Week (CPHFW), it’s time to start.
Everyone knows that Scandi style is unrivalled, so it makes sense that Denmark’s capital would be one to watch.
It kicks off today, with many brands including Ganni, Baum und Pferdgarten, Lovechild 1979 and Gestuz showcasing their new collections for AW22.
Here’s everything you need to know about the shows that happen in Denmark’s capital as it happens.

What is Copenhagen Fashion Week?
The Danish Fashion Institute launched Copenhagen Fashion Week (CPHFW) in 2006, putting a spotlight on fashion creatives from the country.
It’s fast becoming one of the smaller scale Fashion Week’s to watch, as Scandi brands such as Ganni, Stine Goya, Munthe and Saks Potts take part in the event every season.
There’s a real focus on sustainability at CPHFW, with regular talks on circular fashion and a set of sustainability requirements for all the designers who want to showcase their designs at the event.
Every year, CPHFW releases a sustainability report to be transparent in the efforts they’re making to become more environmentally-friendly and the progress they’re making in doing so.
How often does Copenhagen Fashion Week happen?
Just like the other Fashion Weeks’ held across the globe, CPHFW happens twice yearly – in February and August.
The autumn winter collections are shown in February, while spring summer collections are presented in August.
