As Denmark transitions to its highest Covid-19 alert level, Copenhagen Fashion Week has announced that this February’s edition will be a fully digital event, while the CIFF and Revolver trade fairs have been cancelled.
The Danish fashion event has pushed back its summer session’s dates but will still be held in physical format, unlike similar events. The decision came after an agreement was reached with the CIFF and Revolver shows.
The company, known for outfitting rock stars like Iggy Pop, Velvet Revolver and Bruce Springsteen, made the filing with plans to sell to an affiliate of Lion Capital LLC, the majority owner of John Varvatos.
Trade show organisers have been forced to cancel the events planned for June, and are reviewing their plans. Among the options, postponements and ramped-up virtual solutions, as the end of lock-down remains uncertain.
Copenhagen Fashion Week has announced that – at least for the moment – it plans to maintain its current dates, and will take place in the first week of August 2020, bucking a recent trend of postponing seasons in Europe.
The flags chosen as the theme of the Florentine menswear show, which opens on Tuesday, symbolise the diverse, international range of exhibitors of this winter session, featuring major names and special events.
