COPENHAGEN – Copenhagen Fashion Summit has been postponed having become the latest event to fall prey to COVID-19. It follows in the footsteps of leading events such as Intertextile Shanghai, FESPA and Kingpins Hong Kong. Copenhagen Fashion Summit organisers, Global Fashion Agenda, said: “In light of the growing public health concerns around the COVID-19, we have decided to move Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2020 to the autumn. While this was certainly a difficult decision, we believe it is the only responsible and sensible thing to do, taking the global health uncertainties and authority recommendations into consideration.”
In the meantime, the 89th International Wool and Textile Organisation (IWTO) Congress, which was set to take place in China, will now instead take place in Brussels, Belgium from 21-23 May 2020.
