Copenhagen Fashion Week goes virtual

Copenhagen Fashion Week will be held only in digital format.

One of the most anticipated events in the fashion world will take place entirely online. Copenhagen Fashion Week will be staged directly on an online platform, including fashion shows and debates on the world of fashion.

The official announcement comes from CEO of the Nordic kermess (event), Cecille Thorsmark, who says that he understands very well the severity of the second wave of the epidemic, and that, despite the importance of the event, it will be impossible to attend runway shows in person.
