As the fashion world descends on the Danish capital for Copenhagen Fashion Week this week, the hotel booking portal has revealed that Copenhagen is the most fashionable Nordic city.

A survey (here in Danish) of 4,000 respondents in Scandinavia revealed that every third person (32 percent) named Copenhagen the fashion capital of the north.

Every fourth respondent picked Stockholm (25 percent), while Helsinki and Oslo grabbed just 4 percent each. Some 35 percent said they didn’t know.

Some 47 percent of the Danes said that Copenhagen was the top Nordic fashion city – an opinion shared by the Norwegians (32 percent). Both the Swedes (37 percent) and Finns (38 percent) voted their own capitals number one.

Copenhagen hosts Copenhagen Fashion Week, the largest fashion event in Scandinavia, twice a year. The February edition starts tomorrow while the summer edition tends to start on the first Wednesday of August.

The event is mostly centred at the large convention centres Bella Center, Forum and Øksnehallen.
