The Copenhagen trade fairs have agreed a unified date for their spring 16 editions, with CIFF and Revolver set to run from August 5-7.
CIFF will expand at the Bellacenter, with a focus on the premium unisex area Lab, womenswear section Sleek and streetwear and denim area Urban. The show will be reduced to three days from its previous four.
CIFF Raven, the menswear show that launched in January at Copenhagen’s Forum arena, will also move to the Bellacenter but will keep its focus on men’s premium and brands.
The fair organisers said longer-term plans for CIFF include collaborations with design, furniture and lifestyle show Northmodern, international art fair Art Copenhagen and the addition of a performance clothing area.
Revolver will take place at and around Øksnehallen in the Meatpacking District, with four exhibition spaces all within walking distance. Last season’s event was split between that location and the Fishmarket District.
“We have to face the fact that time is today the most valuable resource,” said Christian Maibom, founder and creative director of Revolver. “For this reason we need to be even more precise both in terms of content and constellation. Thereby we make it as easy and less time-consuming for the buyers to navigate and do their business.”
It will also host Revolver Showrooms, comprising separate showrooms for agents and brands to exhibit.
