One of the most interesting moments of CIFF Kids SS18 was assisting at two talks given by Pernille Kirstine Møller of pej gruppen about spring/summer 2018 trends and Your guide to concepts for kids of the future in parallel to the launch of the Edition for CIFF Kids of TØJ-Fashion Magazine & Business Trends.
290 brands and visitors from more than 50 Countries made CIFF Kids SS18 a very important showcase for the Scandinavian universe in kids fashion, lifestyle and interior: stimulating and full of news.
SS18 trends analyzed by pej gruppen at CIFF Kids focus on 4 macro-trends
