Denmark to host Copenhagen Fashion Summit in May 2017
Jan '17
Copenhagen Fashion Summit, the fifth edition of the world’s leading event on sustainability in fashion, will be held on May 11, 2017 at Copenhagen concert hall. The Copenhagen Fashion Summit is under the patronage of HRH Crown Princess Mary of Denmark. It is a non-profit event organised by Danish Fashion Institute on behalf of Nordic Fashion Association.

The Summit has over the years manifested itself as the leading forum for sustainability in fashion and has proven to be a safe neutral environment to launch new initiatives, where businesses, non-profit organisations, policy-makers and media can come together to join forces and make actual commitments to change.

Since the first Copenhagen Fashion Summit was held in 2009 during COP15, it has become the most influential platform for creating awareness on the state of sustainability in fashion.

This year launches the Global Fashion Agenda, a year-round agenda setting forum that aims to convene the entire fashion sector, governments, civil society, and all the great many initiatives out there around a global commitment to positive change. Anchored around the flagship event Copenhagen Fashion Summit, Global Fashion Agenda’s mission is to mobilise the global fashion industry.

To achieve the ambitious strategy of getting the fashion industry to commit to the sustainability agenda, CEO Eva Kruse has up scaled her management team. To realise the Global Fashion Agenda, she will have the following by her side chief operating officer Caroline Chalmer, chief content officer Jonas Eder-Hansen, and chief learning officer Johan Arnø-Kryger.
