Copenhagen Fashion Festival
Copenhagen Fashion Week is holding their opening press launch in City Hall Square. That means that you don’t need to be a VIP to attend. Anyone who wants to hear what’s going on can turn up in the square and find out. They will be using giant screens to show the latest runway collections so we can all get to see them!
If the actual shows are not your thing then check out the alternative events away from the runway - there are of course parties to attend, exhibitions, shopping events and there will be some live music and DJ events taking place - including street parties.
ALL THE SHOWS ARE LIVE ON FASHION TV! Yes, you can go to the City Square and watch all the shows on a giant screen. All the runway shows are going to be uploaded and shown here, so the public can watch them - for free! Great idea!
If you're interested in attending the events, including the shows, parties and breakfasts, then check out the schedule for all the events here
There is an official app you can download to find out more about the show - go to your app store to find out how. Find out more about Copenhagen Fashion Week here
