Don’t miss pej gruppen’s trend talk Your guide to Autumn/Winter 18/19 Power to the people: The reality of our world is a consumer living with polarization, political instability, info overload, scandals and mistrust in authorities. In such a world the very basic values in life become centre of attention. We seek stronger relations, deeper seeded values and personal freedom. Design is always a mirror of the spirit of time and values of a given time and the dreams that we have a about a good life. The concept of freedom is the centre of the season autumn/winter 18/19 and the colours of styles are clearly communicated through four trend themes: Freedom to be neutral, Freedom to be curious, Freedom to think global on Freedom to speak up

An important charity project at CIFF Kids: Childrens Brain Cancer Foundation x CIFF Kids, every child deserves a long and healthy life
CIFF Kids partnered this edition with Childrens Brain Cancer Foundation, founded in 2013 by Anette, a mother – just like us – who lost her eldest daughter to an incurable brain tumour at the age of just three years. CIFF KIDS will help to raise money for the foundation, that supports research in paediatric brain tumours in the pursuit of improving the prognosis for all children affected by a brain tumour, and eventually finding a cure for all paediatric brain tumours.
“We greatly appreciate the support from CIFF KIDS. It is a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness about this disease, and raise funds for research.”
– Anette, Founder of the Children’s Brain Cancer Foundation
“We are so proud to be partner with The Children’s Brain Cancer Foundation and try to help them with our CIFF community. We think we all can do something first to raise awareness about this disease and continuously help to collect funds for research”
– Kristian W. Andersen, CIFF Fashion & Design Director
The Children’s Brain Cancer Foundation works for the establishment of a research and treatment centre for children diagnosed with a brain tumour, as part of the new children’s hospital in Copenhagen opening in 2024. For all donations over 5000 kr. (600 euros), you will participate in a raffle. BC Hospitality Group has kindly offered prices including nights at their award winning four-star hotel AC Bella Sky.
