Six Open Events at Copenhagen Fashion Week SS18

Any fashion week can feel a little exclusive, but Copenhagen Fashion Week does a great job of including the whole city in their biannual festival. This year, the usual talks have been consolidated into one longer day, hosted by Zalando Studios, that’s a must-do if you’re interested in the Scandinavian fashion scene. In addition, there are some exciting launches and openings happening.

Here are the best free and open events during Copenhagen Fashion Week this season!
