The Nordic design talents in the CPHFW NEWTALENT program all work dedicatedly to make the fashion industry more responsible and circular. The scheme is supported by a number of strong partners, including the official partner Circulose, which produces recycled textile material. In addition, the Swedish Fashion Council and the graduate platform ALPHA are among the partners who take the talents under their wing in the CPHFW NEWTALENT programme.

CPHFW NEWTALENT is established by Copenhagen Fashion Week to nurture, develop, and promote emerging Nordic talent on a global scale. The scheme creates new opportunities for the three emerging designers via monetary support, mentorships, partnership offerings, professional advisors, onboarding to the official Copenhagen Fashion Week show schedule, event participation, showroom activations, alumni network, and extensive PR through Copenhagen Fashion Week’s international community and channels.

By announcing this program we are proud to introduce this scheme as a formalised structure to how Copenhagen Fashion Week is investing in the next generation of exceptional talent.

With responsibility an overarching and foundational focus of our organisation, CPHFW NEWTALENT will continue to grow this dedication.

By presenting a support scheme that will introduce our global audience to three Nordic visionaries and provide an encompassing program to build their brand on an international scale.” - Cecilie Thorsmark, CEO Copenhagen Fashion Week

The three brands within the CPHFW NEWTALENT program will be supported for three consecutive seasons within the CPHFW NEWTALENT program. Subsequently each designer will graduate on to the alumni scheme, that will continue supporting the graduates of the NEWTALENT support scheme across showcasing, events, networking, business support, communication and sponsorship opportunities.

Latimmier is a new ready-to-wear label by rising Finnish fashion talent Ervin Latimer.⁠ Latimmier collections are designed for anyone who wants to express masculinity with their clothing. The brand aims to expand the notion of masculinity by challenging who can perform masculinity and what kind of clothing can be used to do that.⁠ At Latimmier sustainability is a prerequisite. 40% of the debut collection materials are of recycled or certified sustainable origin, and the goal is to raise the number to 60% by 2025. This includes maximizing the usage of certified organic cotton, recycled wools, recycled poly-fibres and recycled and vegan dyed leathers. All production is located within the EU, with a goal to launch local Finnish production by 2025.⁠ For Latimmier ecological sustainability goes together with social sustainability. As a brand rooted in POC queer culture, it is important for Latimmier to uplift queer and POC creatives. This also means focusing on the unsustainable norms of the industry, such as long work hours and free internships – Latimmier does not support free internships and has implemented a 4-day work week.⁠ Furthermore, Latimmier argues that sustainable design is not enough. In times of fast fashion and overconsumption, fashion needs a deeper purpose that justifies its existence.⁠

A. Roege Hove

A. Roege Hove is a conceptual knitwear brand that challenges traditions with a modern and artistic approach to original craftsmanship and an aim for silhouettes to be both effortless and extravagant. ⁠The unique designs are created each season by founder Amalie Røge Hove. With a master’s in textile design from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, and years of experience as a knitwear designer for Danish brands such as Cecilie Bahnsen and Mark Tan, she created the brand in 2019 as a way of bringing her own visions of knitwear to life. And it has been evolving and developing ever since.⁠ Defined by an experimenting and intuitive way of working with traditional knitwear techniques, the brand challenges our perception of shape and pushes our expectations of the materials and their behaviour.⁠ 

Berner Kühl

Berner Kühl

Berner Kühl is a Danish menswear brand, started by designer Frederik Berner Kühl.⁠ Prolonging his vision of texture and feel, his ideas first solidify into materials, which are then driving the actual design. Always utilising the key attributes of the raw material in the fabric development phase, the designs often end up being highly dependent on their material origin. The fabric decides what shape is best showcasing the material quality.⁠ With an ambition to create something that is destined to last. The modular wardrobe approach adopted by the brand is calling for less and better consumption. With an intent to educate the consumer on what a good product can be.⁠

CPHFW NEWTALENT er etableret af Copenhagen Fashion Week for at pleje, udvikle og fremme nye nordiske talenter på globalt plan. Ordningen skaber flere muligheder for de tre designtalenter via økonomisk støtte, mentorordninger, partnerskabstilbud, professionel rådgivning, onboarding til det officielle Copenhagen Fashion Week showkalender, eventdeltagelse, aktivering af showrooms, alumni-netværk og PR gennem Copenhagen Fashion Weeks internationale community og kanaler.

"Vi er stolte af at introducere CPHFW NEWTALENT som en formaliseret struktur 
for, hvordan Copenhagen Fashion Week investerer i den næste generation af exceptionelle talenter.

Ansvarlighed er et altoverskyggende og fundamentalt fokusområde i vores organisation, ordningen giver os mulighed for fortsat at øge vores dedikation sammen med nyt talent.

Det er et vigtigt skridt, vi her har taget i målet om at levere et omfattende program for talenterne, så de kan opbygge deres brand internationalt og blive introduceret til vores globale publikum.” - Cecilie Thorsmark, CEO Copenhagen Fashion Week

De tre brands indenfor CPHFW NEWTALENT-programmet vil blive støttet i tre sæsoner med CPHFW NEWTALENT programmet. Efterfølgende vil hver designer opgraderes til alumne-ordningen, der vil fortsætte med at støtte kandidaterne fra NEWTALENT ordningen på tværs af udstilling, events, netværk, forretningsstøtte, kommunikation og sponsorater.

Latimmier credit Tine BekFoto: Tine Bek


Latimmier er et nyt ready-to-wear brand af det voksende finske modetalent Ervin Latimer.⁠ Latimmiers kollektioner er designet til alle der ønsker at udtrykke maskulinitet med deres tøj. Brandet har til formål at udvide begrebet maskulinitet ved at udfordre, hvem der kan vise maskulinitet, og hvilken slags tøj der kan bruges til det.⁠ Hos Latimmier er bæredygtighed en forudsætning. 40% af debut kollektionens materialer er af genanvendt eller af certificeret bæredygtig oprindelse, og målet er at øge andelen til 60% i 2025. Dette kræver en større anvendelse af ​​certificeret økologisk bomuld, genanvendt uld, genanvendt polyfibre og genanvendt og vegansk farvet læder. Al produktion er placeret inden for EU med et mål om at lancere lokal finsk produktion i 2025.⁠ For Latimmier går økologisk bæredygtighed og ansvar sammen med social ansvarlighed. Som et brand med rod i POC-queer-kulturen er det vigtigt for Latimmier at løfte queer- og POC-kreative. Samtidig fokuseres der på industriens uholdbare normer, såsom lange arbejdstider og ulønnet praktikpladser – Latimmier understøtter ikke ulønnet praktikophold og har implementeret en 4-dages arbejdsuge.⁠ Endvidere argumenterer Latimmier for, at bæredygtigt design ikke er nok. I tider med "fast fashion" og overforbrug har mode brug for et dybere formål, der retfærdiggør dens eksistens.⁠

A. Roege Hove

A. Roege Hove er et konceptuelt strik-brand, der udfordrer traditioner med en moderne og kunstnerisk tilgang til originalt håndværk og et mål om, at silhuetter skal være både ubesværede og ekstravagante. ⁠De unikke designs er skabt hver sæson af grundlæggeren Amalie Røge Hove. Med en master i tekstildesign fra Det Kongelige Danske Kunstakademi og mange års erfaring som strikdesigner for danske brands som Cecilie Bahnsen og Mark Tan, skabte hun brandet i 2019 som en måde at bringe sine egne visioner om strik til live. Og det har udviklet sig lige siden.⁠ Defineret af en eksperimenterende og intuitiv måde at arbejde med traditionelle strikteknikker på, udfordrer brandet vores opfattelse af form og presser vores forventninger til materialerne og deres adfærd.⁠

Berner Kühl

Berner Kühl

Berner Kühl er et dansk herretøjs brand, startet af designeren Frederik Berner Kühl.⁠ I forlængelse af hans syn på tekstur og følelse, fastgøres hans ideer først til materialer, som derefter driver selve designet. Ved altid at udnytte råvarens nøgleegenskaber i stofudviklingsfasen ender designs ofte med at være meget afhængige af materialernes oprindelse. Materialet afgør, hvilken form der bedst viser materialets kvalitet og med en ambition om at skabe noget, der er bestemt til at holde. Den modulære garderobetilgang, som brandet anvender, kræver mindre og bedre forbrug. Det er hensigten at fortælle forbrugeren om, hvad et godt produkt kan være.⁠
