The spring/summer 2023 edition of Copenhagen Fashion Week has announced the 36 brands that will showcase as part of the official schedule in August 2022. Here Vogue Scandinavia shares an exclusive first look at the line-up

The Danish capital has established itself as a firm fixture in the bi-annual fashion month calendar, and the roster of designers announced today for Copenhagen Fashion Week's SS23 edition will only strengthen its position.

After successfully navigating digital and hybrid formats for several years, CPHFW will return from 9 - 12 August as a fully physical activation with the same dedication to sustainability and emerging talent.

A host of highly-anticipated Nordic names are confirmed on the bill, including Ganni, Saks Potts, Helmstedt, Rotate, Skall Studio, Stine Goya, Hope, Baum und Pferdgarten, Lovechild 1979, Gestuz, Munthe, Rabens Saloner, Samsøe Samsøe and Remain.

CPHFW will continue its commitment to spotlighting up-and-coming brands, with future visionaries such as Jade Cropper, (di)vision, The Garment and A. Roege Hove. P.L.N. and Finnish label Latimmier will join the brand line-up for the first time, as will OpéraSPORT.

Menswear will also be high on CPHFW’s agenda, with Berner Kühl and Sunflower returning to the schedule alongside CPHFW stalwarts Soulland, Martin Asbjørn, Schnayderman’s, Wood Wood, and last season’s Zalando Sustainability Award winner: Iso.Poetism by Tobias Birk Neilsen. Holzweiler, Henrik Vibskov and Mark Kenly Domino Tan will also be presenting menswear within their collections for the season ahead.

This SS23 season is not only a signifier of the incredible and resilient brands that make up our schedule, but also as a reflection of the inspiring talent that is making change across the creative industry here in the NordicsThorsmark

Since being appointed as CEO of CPHFW in 2018, Cecilie Thorsmark has pioneered change by forming a sustainability advisory board of industry professionals and launching a Sustainability Action Plan with a series of clear targets for 2023.

Commenting on the spring/summer 2023 season, Thorsmark said: “I am so excited to announce this incredible brand line-up for the August edition ahead. SS23 is an important fashion week for us, not only as a signifier of the incredible and resilient brands that make up our schedule, but also as a reflection of the inspiring talent that is making positive change across the creative industry here in the Nordics.”

In line with the event’s sustainable ambitions, the SS23 edition includes the return of the Zalando Sustainability Award for its fourth season. MWORKS, Raeburn and Ranra have been selected as the SS23 finalists from an extensive pool of applicants, with the winner to be announced at the event on 11 August.

As well, as per tradition of its annual showcase, The Royal Danish Academy will present the MA collections of their graduating class.
