The makers of the CIFF Kids will continue to use their panel format for the upcoming edition from 31 January to 2 February 2018 to accompany the trade fair events. The panel discussions on the second day (Thursday, 1 February) will, again, focus on trends and developments in the children’s fashion and lifestyle sector.

The agenda includes shopfitting and in-store experiences, charity campaigns in the retail sector and addressing customers in the digital age.

Expanding the network and discovering new things

The panel discussions will be moderated by Bianca Wessel who runs the fashion and lifestyle blog “Little Scandinavian”. “I enjoyed the last panel discussion very much and can’t wait to hear what the panel will tell us about the future of the industry in terms of both trends and technology next season, “explains the blogger in the run-up to the fair.

“To stay in touch with existing contacts and get to know new people in the industry – and to discover new brands and designers”, is the big plus of the CIFF Kids, the blogger says. “A big advantage is that the fair is located in the center of Copenhagen and that I can also enjoy the beautiful Danish capital for a few days.”

Guest speakers on the podium this season include Wael AlFatayri from Level Kids (VAE), Kimberly Wardell from Design Life Kids (USA), Nicola Eyre from Cissy Wears (UK) and Dwayne Edmondsson from Babyshop (SE & NO).

The Trend Gallery shows inspirations for the designs

In addition, various exhibitors and their product philosophies will be presented in a trend gallery. The story behind the collections and articles and their respective design processes are to be brought into focus. This time, Singular Paris is responsible for the visual concept of the exhibition.

Brands and labels in the exhibitor area include Filemon Kids, Diesel, Brands4Kids, Pom, Alba of Denmark, Ewald Junior, Polo Ralph Lauren Shoes, Superga, How to kiss a frog, Wheat, Disney + Disney, Jellycat and Wildkind Kids.

Luna will be present at the CIFF Kids with its own stand and corresponding magazines. In the run-up to the fair, Luna Mum had published a newsletter in cooperation with the fair and raffled off VIP packages for a visit to the fair.
