Instead of fragmenting this into several short e-mails, we decided to gather all our news and surprise you all at once. This autumn has been all about a hardcore effort to make one of the best fairs ever. Our ambitions are great as always and we start this year with a piece of good news for you all!
The more feminine side of CPH Vision
In February 2010, CPH Vision will celebrate women as the fair reveals its more feminine side. The fair continues to grow and increase its focus on womenswear with a good mix of established contemporary brands and new, up-and-coming designers. A completely new segment of brands will also be introduced at CPH Vision. Big, established international designer names will be exhibiting in Denmark for the first time. Looking to establish new contacts in Scandinavia and aiming at new interesting targets, these brands represent new beginnings and new constellations at CPH Vision.
Terminal-2 goes X-Large
Terminal-2 will be expanding with 1000 m2 to launch its new high-end workwear/heritage segment in the old Kedelsmedjen – The Boiler Shop – and play host to an interesting new brand selection. The inspiration comes from the increasing influence of the heritage brands – in terms of craftsmanship, tradition and history. Many brands are also taking their inspiration from the ‘oldies’ through interesting collaborations such as Jil Sanders’ most recent partnership with Uniqlo.
A different show setup
The show setup is being restructured and three shows will be presented in February 2010. Terminal-2 get its own press show to be held at the ‘terminal’ on Thursday 11 February. As in previous years, the CPH Vision Press Show will be held on the Wednesday prior to the opening of the fair, this time on 10 February at 6 pm. The daily shows – previously held from Thursday-Sunday – will be replaced by an amazing look-book installation showcasing the fair’s looks at the entrances to both CPH Vision and Terminal-2.
Designers Nest show and awards
The Designers’ Nest shows, previously held both on Friday and Saturday, will merge into one bigger show and both the the awards ceremony & show will be held on Saturday 13 February only. As always, we are working to persuade big international names to join the committee of judges. Last time we were delighted to have one of the biggest names in fashion, Senior Fashion Writer at The Sunday Times and founder of Fashion Fringe at Covent Garden, Colin McDowell on board. Colin McDowell was especially invited for the occasion by Copenhagen Fashion Fairs and will be joining the judging panel again this February.
