The chatroom: Head of Business & Operations at CFW, Sophie Noreng

News article

Copenhagen Fashion Week is coming closer and with only a month before it all kicks off we have asked some of the fashion injury’s insiders to share their favourite Copenhagen hot spots, and how they prepare for the coming fashion week.

During fashion week our Head of Business & Operations, Sophie Noreng, love the special buzz in the streets when the most inspiring and creative people dress up for the camera lenses.

How do you prepare for fashion week?

The weeks before fashion week are always intense with long days at the office to wrap up the last details. I really love the summer fashion week and working during July. Our office is located in the most idyllic courtyard in the heart of Copenhagen, and we make sure to enjoy the summer while working hard, having meetings outside, lunching in the sun, laughing and drinking a glass of rosé after office hours. I keep structure with a lot of to-do lists and prioritize to sleep good, eat good and exercise.

What are you most excited about during fashion week? 

I’m excited to spot the new design talents but also see what the more established brands have up their sleeves. We have so many incredible designers on the show schedule and this season no less than 31 shows presenting a perfect mix of new talents, show debutants and Danish fashion’s heavyweights. Oh, and the street style is a show unto itself! During fashion week Copenhagen just lights up, and I love this special buzz in the streets when the most inspiring and creative people dress up for the camera lenses. I’m also super excited to meet all my lovely colleagues out and about when the industry gathers to celebrate and show the world that Scandinavian fashion rocks.

Where is the best place to dance in Copenhagen?

At the moment I love the new hot spot Dandy – the perfect lounge with tasty cocktails (I mean, the menu has a whole page dedicated to espresso martinis!), beautiful interior and R&B music that will take you straight to the dance floor. Another dancefloor favourite is Never Mind. Guilty pleasure pop songs, confetti and some of the most colourful people in Copenhagen. What’s not to love?

What is the first thing you will do after Copenhagen Fashion Week? 

Put on comfy clothes. And sleep. I can’t wait to spend quality time with friends and family again after some intense weeks. And at some point I’ll sneak off to a sunny beach somewhere.
