The fifth edition of the world’s most important event on sustainability in fashion, Copenhagen Fashion Summit, will take place on 11 May 2017 at Copenhagen Concert Hall under the patronage of HRH Crown Princess Mary of Denmark. The Summit will present a curated programme of keynotes and discussions and deep diving breakout sessions with leading voices who will share their experiences and commitments to inspire future action. Furthermore, more than 100 top students that are part of the Youth Fashion Summit and 100 academics that are part of Educators Summit from leading international institutions will be gathered to give the next generation’s perspective on tomorrow’s innovations.
Nordic Fashion Association (NFA) was inaugurated in 2008 by the five Nordic fashion organisations: Danish Fashion Institute; Helsinki Design Week; Icelandic Fashion Council; Oslo Fashion Week; and Swedish Fashion Council. The organisation has the core purpose of gathering the Nordic fashion industry and collectively embark on the process of working with, and implementing, socially responsible and sustainable principles.
