What trade shows do you attend in Copenhagen and what do you look for while there?

I attend Gallery, Vision and CIFF because they offer something different and it gives me an opportunity to buy for immediate delivery and order for next season. There was a good mix this season of commercial and innovative brands. If you’re looking for new labels, head to Gallery.

I visit Gallery, Vision and CIFF as Copenhagen offers small labels that aren’t available in London or the rest of Europe. None of the shows were particularly busy but I liked the new format at CIFF as it was easier to navigate and it was great to see all the capsule collections in [luxury area] the Crystal Hall.
Owner of Leeds menswear store MKI I attended Gallery primarily and had a quick look around Vision too. Our main focus was to bring over brands that were quite sparse if not absent in Leeds or even the UK. We did this last season with Rains which worked out perfectly. We came back with a shortlist of a few brands of interest.
