For the coming show, featuring kidswear for Autumn Winter 2015, CIFF KIDS will no longer be in conjunction with CIFF and Copenhagen Fashion Week. The Nordic kids trade show has chosen to go solo and move both premises and dates.
It’s been a tradition that CIFF KIDS is running alongside CIFF and Copenhagen Fashion Week. Although this has made Copenhagen a buzzing fashion capital, it’s also extremely busy with fully booked hotels and restaurants. From the next season CIFF KIDS is moving from Bella Center and will instead occupy the premises of Forum Copenhagen, situated in Frederiksberg, Central Copenhagen, with independent dates from Sunday the 25th-27th January 2015.
“CIFF KIDS is Northern Europe’s most progressive and best curated children’s fashion fair and it is important that we continue to ensure positive growth for the exhibitors. By freeing CIFF KIDS from CIFF, we have the opportunity to create the right universe of children’s brands and develop new exciting initiatives” says Kristian W. Andersen, Fashion & Design Director to CIFF / CIFF KIDS, and continues – “The CIFF KIDS fair has never been quite optimal for the children’s industry in relation to the international trade fairs and now we will be able to accommodate this at the same time as we introduce a new visual concept of international format.”
The idea of a separation from CIFF has been well received among the exhibitors and buyers who look forward to a more personal fair in an ultimate children’s universe. We do too -and can’t wait to visit Copenhagen and the new version of CIFF KIDS in January 2015. Will we see you there? Anyway, stay posted on ciff.dk/ciff-kids
