Denmark is quickly becoming one of the world’s most fashionable countries, and it’s for good reason. The rise of Scandi chic is something that continually influences our day-to-day wardrobes and on an industry level, Copenhagen’s seasonal fashion week showcases are becoming a staple event within the cultural calendar.
As a result, more and more of us are looking to the distinctive locale for inspiration on what clothes to wear, what products to buy and most importantly: how to use and style them. With that in mind, the market is continually growing, bustling with new beauty and fashion brands for us to devour. That’s where the Copenhagen International Fashion Fair comes in, a bi-annual trade fair that showcases the best of the best in terms of rising brands, and helps its attendees discover what’s worth investing in for the season ahead.
