Copenhagen Fashion Week is an international fashion event, held twice a year in Copenhagen.[1]

The first Copenhagen Fashion Week was held in 2006, the result of a merger of previous Danish clothing trade fairs, Dansk Modeuge and Dansk Herremodeuge, which date back to the 1950s. [2] Copenhagen Fashion Week is owned by the Danish Fashion Institute.[3]

Today, the event takes place in February and August, and is the Nordic region's largest fashion event with more than 1,600 exhibitors and 2,800 branded collections[4] in addition to 40-45 runway shows on the official show schedule.

Copenhagen Fashion Week consists of a market week with 3 big fairs: CIFF at Bella Center, Revolver at Øksnehallen and Gallery that connects showrooms in the city of Copenhagen[5] and a diverse range of fashion shows at City Hall and the Royal Academy of Music. The Copenhagen Fashion Summit brings together industry leaders to discuss topics such as ethical fashion, the impact of technology and industry trends.

Copenhagen Fashion Week also offers a programme open to all, for consumers, citizens and tourists. This open part of the week, Copenhagen Fashion Festival, is developed in collaboration between Wonderful Copenhagen, Copenhagen City Centre and Copenhagen Fashion Week.More than 50.000 professionals from the fashion industry visit the three fairs.

Copenhagen Fashion Week is organised by the three fairs and the company Copenhagen Fashion Week, which aims to promote Danish fashion on international markets. Among the fashion houses that stand out in Copenhagen Fashion Week are Ivan Grundahl, Bruuns Bazaar, Wood Wood, Dagmar of Sweden, By Malene Birger, Henrik Vibskov, Baum und Pferdgarten and Day Birger et Mikkelsen.
