Good news first: both Copenhagen trade shows, CIFF and Revolver, have chosen to optimize their locations and streamline their dates, meaning visitors now only have to commute to a total of two destinations, namely Bella Center (CIFF) and The Meatpacking District (Revolver) between today and Friday.

Copenhagen’s biggest fashion fair CIFF has decided to incorporate its distinct menswear format CIFF Raven into its Bellacenter grounds.  As part of the Raven offer, CIFF has installed the separate area ‘Raven Projects’ on a 2,000 sqm industrial space. Under the direction of John Skelton of progressive London store LN-CC, Raven Projects is showcasing 20 designers for the modern menswear market with a focus on artisanal design and sustainable production, including names such as Curieux, Dr Jacksons, Haal, James Long, Maxwell Snow or Rombaut).

Other news include the extension and redesign of CIFF’s Urban area housing brands from the streetwear and denim segment. The new build-up has an own entrance and houses several newcomers such as Me & My Brothers, Red Collar Project, Un jean, Defend Paris, Les (Art)ists, Double U Frenk, Arrogant Artists, Superga, The Blue Uniform, N.O.C., The Project Garments, Non Violence, OHW, HYMN and Mamh Sthlm.

Between the Urban and Raven areas, you will find innovative, design-driven international labels at Lab (Apocs, Born/Raised, Carven, Close, Et al Design, ETQ Amsterdam, Harmony Paris, Legends, L’Homme Rouge, Pendleton, Rodebjer,  Tom Wood etc.), upcoming womenswear at Sleek (new entrants include RainbowWave,  Leowulff, GREY Copenhagen, holyGhost, LeatherProjects, Jaeha or Louise Körner) and contemporary, more grown-up names at Premium (AT.P.CO, Calvin Klein or H.I.S Jeans NY 1923).
