Danish fashion selling like hot cakes abroad
“We can already see the figures for the first quarter, and it looks like 2017 will become a record year,” Thomas Klausen, the head of trade association Danish Fashion & Textile, says. “Danish companies are good at making quality creative design for competitive prices. And Danish designers just have something unique. We have a Scandinavian cut that they are crazy about abroad. And we are strong businessmen, which makes us good at selling our products.” According to a report by the auditor firm Deloitte, Danish clothing exports increased by 17.6 percent from 2013 to 2016. The biggest market by far for Danish fashion exports is Germany – growth increased by 8 percent from 2015 to 2016 – and things are also improving in a number of other markets such as Italy, France and Belgium.
