Eighty top Scandinavian designer brands will come together at Gallery International Fashion Fair (gallery.dk), a dazzling new fashion trade show in Copenhagen that will run August 9 to 12.

Gallery is one of several fashionable trade shows in the Danish city occurring at the time. Among other events are Copenhagen Fashion Week (copenhagenfashionweek.dk) with designer catwalk shows which runs August 8 to 12, the premium fashion and streetwear show CPH Vision (cphvision.dk) on August 9 to 12 and the fashion and kidswear show CIFF (ciff.dk), also on August 9 to 12.

Gallery will feature the New Luxury fashion brands Noir, Acne, Annhagen, Designer Remix Collection, Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair, Filippa K (pictured above), IvanaHelsinki, Tiger of Sweden, Peter Jensen, Jens Laugesen, J Lindeberg, Whyred and Mads Nørgaard. In addition to the Scandinavian houses, 60 international designers such as Martin Margiela, Raf Simons, Stella McCartney, See by Chloe, MCQ by Alexander McQueen, Paul Smith, Missoni and Calvin Klein, Nobody, Superfine, Sass & Bide and Anglomania will also show there. Gallery's goal is to attract as many international buyers as possible.

Gallery will also stage three fashion shows: Danish designer AnnHagen, Swedish designer Ann-Sofie Back and Danish designer Jens Laugesen. These designers have previously been part of the official programs of fashion weeks in New York and London. The show will also feature photo exhibits, parties, receptions and more.

The exhibition will be centrally located near the city’s inner center at Forum Copenhagen, Julius Thomsen Plads, Frederiksberg.

In 2006 alone Danish fashion houses had sales increases of 17% outside of Scandinavia. International buyers and press are the key visitors among the 20,000 guests who visited Copenhagen Fashion Week in February 2007, and the goal is to attract 30,000 within the next two years.
