When is Copenhagen Fashion Week 2023?
CPHFW roughly follows the schedule of the other Fashion Weeks – London Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week, Paris Fashion Week and New York Fashion Week. It takes place twice a year, in February and August.
This year the event will begin on 31 January and end on 3 February 2023.
Each show features designers’ collections meant for the upcoming seasons. So the February shows give a preview of autumn winter clothing while August shows feature pieces for spring summer of the next year.
What brands take part in Copenhagen Fashion Week?
As you may expect, the show will feature many sustainable brands. As well as familiar names such as Ganni, Saks Potts and Marimekko, the official schedule includes rising labels like (Di)vision, Holzweiler, Rotate and many more.
This year’s CFW is packed with 29 hybrid showcases (physical and digital), talks, celebrations, and activations.
You can find the schedule on the Copenhagen Fashion Week website.
Can the public attend Copenhagen Fashion Week?
Just like other Fashion Weeks, many of the shows are by invite only.
If you work in fashion — as a journalist, buyer or any other industry professional — you may apply for accreditation on the CPHFW website. You may apply for accreditation for physical and digital shows.
CPHFW was digital-only in 2021 but started holding physical shows last year, so make sure you apply for accreditation as soon as possible.
