We’re well into the fashion months early in the year, with the men’s catwalks of Paris and Milan slowly fading into the distance. Before things ramp up again with women’s collections in New York, London, Paris and Milan, two other fashion weeks will be going ahead: Stockholm and Copenhagen. While often overlooked, these two Scandinavian cities pack a punch and are set to exhibit some exciting and dynamic collections from emerging and established designers.
First up is Copenhagen, kicking off on the 1st Feb. As the leading Nordic fashion week, Copenhagen is host to an array of fashion talent. Separating CFW from the rest is sustainability: “Sustainability is the core focus area for Copenhagen Fashion Week. Copenhagen Fashion Week strives towards making substantial changes to the way the event is executed, and works to inspire and encourage the industry to take steps towards becoming more sustainable”.

Next up is Stockholm. Creativity and sustainability are always a focus for the Swedish fashion industry and the week is set to explore the New Normal and the impact of the extreme digital transformation resulting from the pandemic, including how to improve processes and consumption patterns within this space.“We want to offer a sharper and stronger fashion week… It’s clear that we will choose different ways to consume fashion going forward. This changes everything, not least the value of fashion”, says Catarina Midby, Secretary General at Swedish Fashion Association. Here are the shows not to miss (all times in GMT):
