Six Open Events for Copenhagen Fashion Week AW21

This season’s Copenhagen Fashion Week, which takes place 2nd – 4th February, is entirely digital. Due to COVID-restrictions, the organization has opted for safety rather than trying to hold even a small number of in-person events. We applaud their proactive stance and are excited to see how the schedule translates as a fully digital fashion week.

From talks to runway shows and more, fashion week’s digital iteration offers accessibility for so many more than ever before. In terms of events, this season will be focused on live Q&A sessions with designers and others in the fashion industry, spearheaded by an array of international publications and journalists.
