Six Things to Do at Copenhagen Fashion Week AW17

Fashion weeks can feel a little isolated; fashion in general often seems to be more about exclusion and aspiration than about the general public who fuel the industry. In Copenhagen, we’re lucky that Fashion Week runway shows are accompanied by many free and open events, making the fashion world a bit more welcoming. Check out everything from exhibitions to afterparties!

Here are the free & open events you can enjoy during Copenhagen Fashion Week, regardless of whether you’re in the fashion industry or not:

List Marker: Number 1Meet the Designers of Fashion Hong Kong

If you’re interested in hearing more from exciting Hong Kong-based designers, head to CIFF for free drinks, snacks and conversation with the four designers showing at this year’s Fashion Hong Kong runway show. Register here to attend.

Wednesday 1st February, 4:00 – 6:00 pm
CIFF Style Setters Bungalows (C4-110)
Center Boulevard 5
2300 København S


List Marker: Number 2The French Embassy Human Rights Prize

Former Head of Copenhagen Fashion Week Eva Kruse will be awarded the Human Rights Prize of the French Embassy for creating Copenhagen Fashion Summit, the world’s largest conference on sustainable fashion. A fantastic event, plus the interior of the French Embassy is a real treat! Email the event contact in the link to inquire about an invitation.
