Looking upon the forthcoming S/S 12 season, we feel that timehas come to recognize design and fashion for the form of art, it truly is. Focus has - for too long - been on individuals wearing garments instead of the constructed, design creations. Representing Copenhagen’s two leading trade fairs CPH Vision & Terminal-2, we wish to draw the spotlight back to the basics - onto art and innovation.
Every season, we work hard and intense to create an accessible trade fair platform presenting CPH Vision & Terminal-2 as much more than a fashion trade fair. Not only a platform for fashion brands to present their latest collections and create business, but also a place for new emerging designers to showcase their collection and talent to buyers worldwide. With this strategy, we ensure both an evolving and continuous creativity and strong and ongoing business in the industry.
Focus this season has been our relation to the exhibitors - Service level is raised to a higher level and everything is made more straightforward for our exhibitors and visitors. The free admission for visitors is a big step for the Copenhagen Fashion Week and will definitely attract more buyers with a result of new signings. Furthermore, we are happy to introduce a new scanning system. This season, all exhibitors will be able to scan all of their stand visitors. The registration of the visitors secure all information is correct in the fast moving exhibitor stand and a complete visitor list can afterwards be collected for the benefit of both seller and client. Changes for better, which can only turn into a success - something we can extend with new exciting initiatives for each season.
The Vision Family is also looking towards brighter days in several other ways as many thrilling changes are in process and it is starting to show! Our website www.CopenhagenFashionFairs.com now has a whole new identity. Inspired by the new S/S 12 campaign - the colors are brighter, the look is sharper, while more dynamically reflecting the strong appearance of Copenhagen Fashion Fairs. From a new creative view on fashion, we created a campaign that sums up, what CPH Vision & Terminal are all about; Innovation, business and creativity. The ideas and inspiration behind the campaign are also thought into the interior decoration of CPH Vision, whereas the famous flower stylist Nicolai Bergmann will create an inspiring universe of flowers. The new campaign adorns the front page of our website whereas you can also find inspiration and news from the newly launched CFF BLOG. Next tradeshow will be running from 4-6th of August and opening hours will be Thursday-Friday 10AM-7PM, Saturday 10AM-6PM.
