Sustainable Fashion Show In Copenhagen

A fashion show 'Innovating Sustainable Fashion' was held in Copenhagen on December 3 prior to the conference. It was organised by the Center for Responsible Design in cooperation with Copenhagen Fashion Fairs, to support sustainable fashion in the lead-up to COP15.

The 19 collections on the catwalk were chosen from more than 60 entries to the sustainable design competition.

“We focus on design students, because they will be working in the industry very soon, and it is important that they make the right decisions,” said Peter Dammand, teacher at the Danish Design School, who sees environmental, ethical and financial concerns as the three cornerstones of sustainable fashion.

Five prizes were handed out in three categories: Design For Inclusion, Design Considering Use, and Design For Environment. Tobias Noe Harboe from the Danish Design School was awarded the first prize that came with a cheque of 15,000 Danish Kroner, for his sci-fi inspired design.

All designs are exhibited at the Danish Design Center from December 8 until January 31.
