Isko, a global leader in denim production, is set to partake in the fifth edition of the Copenhagen Fashion Summit, the world’s leading business forum on sustainable fashion, on May 11, 2017. The Summit boasts an impressive line-up of more than 50 high level speakers who will engage in panel discussions to address the critical issues of the fashion industry.

On 10 May 2017, a special project of the ISKO I-SKOOL Denim Design Award 2016 competition will present the sustainable fashion designs of ten international design students from Japan to the US. The winner will be chosen by a jury consisting of international fashion experts such as fashion professional Peter Copping and editor-at-large of Vogue India Bandana Tewari. The initiative is conceived by Isko, who is also one of the principal sponsors of Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2017.

Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2017 will present a line-up of high-level speakers, including the CEO of Tiffany & Co. Michael Kowalski, The New York Times chief fashion critic Vanessa Friedman, circular economy authority Dame Ellen MacArthur, founder of Eco Age Ltd. Livia Firth, fashion designer Prabal Gurung, CEO of Hugo Boss Mark Langer and sustainability leader William McDonough. The 2017 Summit will be hosted by Amber Valletta, model and entrepreneur, and Tyler Brûlé, editor-in-chief of Monocle.

Marco Lucietti, global marketing director of Sanko/Isko division, will be one of the key panellists of the breakdown session dedicated to the topic “Technology innovation”, that will be held on the May 11, 2017, at the Copenhagen concert hall.

This year will also see the launch of the first-ever edition of the groundbreaking ‘Pulse of the Fashion Industry’ report, which has been developed in collaboration between Global Fashion Agenda and its knowledge partner, The Boston Consulting Group. This annual report will be the first of its kind to provide a common fact base on the current sustainability performance of the industry, to quantify the potential of sustainability in fashion and to provide recommendations for companies across the supply chain.

Students from all over the world will gather to draft a proposed UN resolution on fashion to be presented on stage at the Summit and delivered to the UN later this year. The Youth Fashion Summit represents a collaboration between Global Fashion Agenda and Copenhagen School of Design and Technology (KEA) in partnership with Swarovski, one of the principal sponsors of Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2017.
