CIFF aims to be gateway to European fashion industry
Jan '13
"The reaction to 'the new CIFF' unveiled last August has been overwhelmingly positive with over 250 new brands joining the CIFF community. The new image and structure are only the first steps in our metamorphosis however. Our ultimate aim is to make CIFF the gateway to the entire European fashion industry. I firmly believe we are on our way." Kristian W. Andersen


1st Edition: 31 January 2013

For the upcoming Fall/Winter 2013-14 fair, CIFF is excited to unveil Crystal Hall, a unique showcase space especially designed for CIFF by renowned scenographer Jean Christophe Aumas whose services are eagerly sought after by the world's leading luxury fashion brands including Louis Vuitton, Celine and Dior. Crystal Hall will house a carefully curated mix of the world's most forward-looking brands with a particular focus on lifestyle and menswear. The inaugural edition of the space will be dedicated to some of the brands most closely tracked by the industry for new directions in style and attitude.

Crystal Hall represents a new direction for CIFF. Starting in August 2013, it will operate as a separate fair under the CIFF banner. Criteria for inclusion will be communicated during the Fall/Winter 2012-13 from 31st January to 3rd February 2013.

Come discover Crystal Hall and glimpse the future of fashion.


31st January to 3rd February 2013

This past August, the Copenhagen International Fashion Fair (CIFF) unveiled a new visual identity, a new structure and an array of new services to better support our partners. The response has been overwhelmingly positive. This was however just the beginning. CIFF is in the process of unveiling what is to become the most comprehensive and innovative fashion platform in the industry.

At CIFF, we believe that one common platform in Copenhagen uniting all Scandinavian fashion under one roof is the only way forward. We are therefore continuing to implement the new structure introduced in August which now encompasses menswear, womenswear, children's wear, sportswear, shoes and jewellery gathered in one place at one time during one fair. Once our new structure and services are fully implemented, CIFF will become not only the gateway to Scandinavian fashion but the ultimate one-stop destination for the entire European fashion industry.


Social Media

The Scandinavian ethos and way of life are at the forefront of global style trends and thanks in part to CIFF, the world is now taking note. For the first time in its 20 year history, CIFF attracted to Copenhagen some of the world's most influential journalists and bloggers from across the U.S., Europe, Asia and Scandinavia.

Along with CIFF's own in-house social media team, they worked tirelessly to create valuable positive buzz about CIFF across the digital sphere. CIFF is propelling the Scandinavian fashion industry into the international spotlight thanks to the ambitious social media strategy launched in August. CIFF will pursue its digital strategy for the upcoming Fall/Winter 2013 -14 fair by attracting key influencers including journalists and bloggers from the world over.
