Copenhagen Fashion Week announces brand line up for expanded SS24 event
Copenhagen Fashion Week has revealed the line-up for the SS24 edition as it gears up for expansion via an extra show day, with it starting on a Monday afternoon this time.
Set to run from 7-11 August, it will feature a mix of established names and emerging innovators including designers appearing under the CPHFW NewTalent programme.
In total there are 31 brands that have been approved by the CPHFW Show Committee and Sustainability Committee, a “unique screening process” that sees brands being picked for “fashion design criteria as well as a full value chain perspective, [being] screened against Copenhagen Fashion Week’s 18 Minimum Standards”.
CEO Cecilie Thorsmark said that continuing on from its debut season of Sustainability Requirements, it’s notable that both new and returning brands are showing “dedication to operate more responsibly”.
And she explained the extra day, saying that “as our fashion weeks continue to grow, we too must expand into the wider part of the week in order to give the deserved time and space for the exceptional line-up we have planned for SS24 across shows, presentations, events and activations. This growth is symbolic furthermore of our reach and reputation on a global scale, of which we are so thankful for our continued supporters and partners and brands”.
The August edition will include a show by the winner of the Zalando Visionary Award, Paolina Russo, as well as brands under that CPHFW NewTalent umbrella. Continuing from last season are Latimmier and P.L.N.. As finalist of the Wessel & Vett Fashion Prize 2022, Nicklas Skovgaard will join the line-up too, with Rolf Ekroth also debuting this season. And MLGA will be awarded the CPHFW NewTalent One To Watch title.
