Hello there 🙂
Copenhagen Fashion Week has both the privilege and the daunting task of putting each fashion month first on the calendar, closely followed by New York, London, Milan and Paris. For F / W 21, all eyes were on the Danish capital to see what a fully digital fashion week would look like during COVID-19.
While editors like me have great fun traveling to Copenhagen and seeing the clothes up close, most Scandi brand fans are already used to seeing the clothes on Instagram and have no doubt been delighted with a fresh harvest ingenious clothes. Still wearable designs by Baum und Pferdgarten, by Malene Birger and more.
The new look probably left you with a mile-long wish list, but CPHFW CEO Cecilie Thorsmark reiterated in her opening speech that the event is about so much more than cool clothes. "A year ago we started our sustainability action plan," she said in a video. "The plan set specific goals for the next three years. But it also showed our ultimate goal of introducing minimal sustainability requirements that brands have to meet by 2023 in order to be able to participate in our fashion week."
The first list of its kind includes the use of at least 50% organic, fair trade or recycled materials. Construction of zero waste set designs; Prohibition of all single-use plastics, including garment bags and water bottles; undertake not to throw away any unsold clothing; Only use packaging that is recyclable, reusable, or biodegradable. and much more.
This week Copenhagen Fashion Week proved they intend to go the way by releasing their first annual sustainability report to document the progress of the event and make it transparent where they fell short. Accountability – that's a word I love to hear.
