In the heart of Copenhagen, Ciff Kids showcases over 270 of the top international and Scandinavian fashion, interior, and lifestyle brands. The three-day trade fair, is an inspirational place—with the informal and relaxed feel of a showroom.
Junior Style got a sneak peek of the emerging and established brands presenting their AW17 collections and we absolutely adore the strong emphasis on natural materials, functionalism and minimalism. Many brands demonstrate a strong commitment to core Scandinavian values of sustainability, fair trade and eco-consciousness.
A highlight of the show included Soft Gallery’s exhibition in celebration of their 10th Anniversary. Created in collaboration with a selection of the many artists that have contributed to Soft Gallery collections over the last ten years, the exhibition was a celebration of Soft Gallery’s passion for art.

Wawa was founded by Johanna Topooco of Swedish and Bolivian heritage. The name Wawa means ‘Child’ in Aymara a native language spoken by Indians in Bolivia and Peru. The inspiration for the collections designed by Johanna derive from her heritage: her father’s love of nature and the environment yet incorporate clean cut Scandinavian styles. Wawa is a sustainable brand with core values of creating long lasting products both in terms of style and quality for the new generation.
Les Coyotes de Paris is a Dutch label designing luxury classics and iconic styles for girls 6-16 years. For Aw17 the New Romantics collection includes timeless classics made from rich materials, clothing that allows your daughters personality to shine through.
Icelandic kids clothing label Iglo + Indi, is designed using organic fabrics. The easy to wear styles are available in several colours and feature handmade illustrations. Iglo + Indi want your children to be creative and to have fun styling their own outfits by mixing and matching the designs and colours.
Christina Rohde – It is always lovely to catch up with Christina and it was a real treat to meet her daughter Olivia who is a photographer and shoots the look books for the brand as well as creating interesting films for each collection. The Danish designer, a pioneer in providing Scandinavian style and quality in childrenswear, produces edgy and sophisticated girls’ clothing, classics with a twist! Whilst I was speaking with Christina it was lovely to meet one of her very first buyers who purchased her first collection way back in 1991.
The Aw17 collection entitled ‘The Couch Potato’ features vintage looks and lots of patterns.
Spanish brand KiSSe showed their first collection this February at Ciff Kids. The bold and striking illustrations created by the designer’s children are inspired by the stories created by the designer Christina Altuna’s husband, the Danish writer Jens Peter Kai Jensen and brought to life by Christina. This sustainable brand therefore has strong links to both Denmark and Spain with the clothing being produced in the Iberian Peninsula, where close attention to the smaller details are made, for example the buttons are made from olive tree branches. This brand is designed by children for children.
Bonheur du Jour is a French clothing label designed Catherine Dufossez for children 0-16 years. The styles are easy to wear and care for and feature fine and delicate fabrics, embroidery and embellishments. Beautiful designs for everyday wear.
