CIFF spreads the Copenhagen word in London and Berlin
CIFF and CIFF RAVEN the Copenhagen International Fashion Fair (and its menswear extension), is set to follow-up its Shoreditch House bash a couple of weeks ago with a follow-up event at Soho House in Berlin this coming week, spreading the event’s reputation as one of the premier platforms of its kind in Northern Europe. The Shoreditch House celebration (in collaboration with Starworks PR group) brought some of London’s best -known fashion press and buyers to the ‘Secret Garden’ space on the roof of Shoreditch House where Horsemeat Disco’s DJ Severino provided a louche London soundtrack to the evening, and Scandi-style canapés were served. The profile of Danish fashion has been raised in London by Astrid Andersen’s shows at LC:M, and in the form of inimitable Danish fashion lecturer/designer Peter Jensen. CIFF of course showcases new Danish talent such as menswear designer Martin Asbjorn, but in the international spirit of the event, Britain’s own E.Tautz and superlative curators Touba London were also represented at Shoreditch House. Danish design is renowned the world over for furniture and interiors, and Copenhagen is regularly voted one of the world’s most liveable cities, making it a perfect host city for international fashion events like CIFF. If the Shoreditch House night is anything to go by, the Danes are also experts in turning on the charm and partying like a local in London, and now Berlin.
CIFF takes place in Copenhagen, 5-7 August.
