Through the years the Fashion Week in Copenhagen has grown larger and larger and today it is one of the bigger events in the fashion and textile business of Europe.

Fashion and clothing companies now come to Copenhagen from many places in the World to see the last creations.

Copenhagen Fashion Week takes places twice a year - in February and August. Next time it will be:

8th - 12th of August 2017

30th of January - 3rd of February 2018

First of all the Fashion Week is organized for professionals in the fashion business and many of the events in these days are closed the public. In the last years however more have been done to make give the citizens and private visitors of Copenhagen a special experience when in the days of the big fashion fairs. Now more of these events are branded as the Copenhagen Fashion Weekend.

The professional Fashion Week consists of several fashion fairs on different places in Copenhagen. On top of that many organizations and fashion houses organize special events and presentations spread all over the city.
