Isko, a leading, global denim ingredient brand, is displaying the future of responsible denim at the Copenhagen Fashion Summit (CFS) 2018. The sixth edition of CFS, one of the world’s leading business event on sustainability in fashion, is being held on May 15 and 16, 2018, at Copenhagen concert hall, Denmark. Isko is the principal sponsor of the event.

Isko is hosting three events at the summit. The launch of its new Isko Earth Fit collection, the Innovations for Supply Chain Efficiency deep-dive session, and a sustainability judging day for the 2017 finalists of the ISKO I-SKOOL competition. Each event reflects the brand’s longstanding focus on responsibility, innovation and citizenship

In the CFS innovation forum, visitors can explore the new Isko Earth Fit collection and share its responsible innovation mission with an interactive space. Visitors can feel the fabrics, reflect on the future of fashion and share collaborative messages championing a responsible future at the Isko wall.

Isko is unveiling its third Isko Earth Fit collection for the first time, the pinnacle of its responsible innovation strategy, bringing the total number of fabrics to 49.

The company is also hosting a dynamic panel featuring speakers including Ebru Ozkucuk Guler, senior CSR executive, Isko; Géraldine Vallejo, sustainability programme director, Kering; Nicolaj Reffstrup, CEO, Ganni; Linda Greer, Natural Resources Defense Council; Pamela Batty, vice president corporate responsibility, Burberry; and Susanna Wilson, global head of sustainable networks and entrepreneurship, HSBC. The panel highlights the importance of industry leaders working with partners across all tiers of their supply chain to harness untapped potential for improving sustainability performance. Collaboration is the major theme, focusing on opportunities to ensure responsible practices from fabric through to the final customer.

The talented 2017 ISKO I-SKOOL competition finalists have had their submissions judged on sustainability. The expert jury included Fabio Di Liberto, brand director, Isko; Kai Margrander, fashion director, Harper’s Bazaar Germany; Peter Copping, fashion expert, Henriette Pieszak, CEO, Pieszak and Tomorrow; Rebekka Bach, women design manager, G-Star Raw; and Bandana Tewari, editor-at-large, Vogue India.

An inspirational movie has been created for the summit to showcase the 2017 finalists’ collections. Each year, a forward-thinking theme is selected to inspire students to address the major challenges facing society. The 2017 theme of ‘Genderful’ sought to support ideas of inclusion and freedom of expression. The movie celebrated the students’ vision for the future, as tomorrow’s game changers. ISKO I-SKOOL is an educational project designed to nurture emerging talent from top universities with experience across the denim industry. (GK)
