Fashion market is focusing on sustainable lifestyle and raising money for Save the Children
Copenhagen Fashion Week, Boozt and Tradono by Trendsales have with the CFW Fashion Market put focus on sustainable lifestyle and in cooperation with other contributors raised DKK 50.695,75 (€ 6.800) for Save the Children and their project ‘Child-to-Child’.
Last year Copenhagen Fashion Week and Boozt joined forces with fashion-conscious women, men and children when we raised money for Save the Children’s ‘Child-to-Child’-project which helps less fortunate children all over the world.
CFW and Boozt decided to continue the fashion market success, this time in Carlsberg Byen in collaboration with the second-hand app Tradono by Trendsales. Just like last year, the goal was to raise money for the ‘Child-to-Child’ project and to conduct a discussion with the consumer’s sustainable lifestyle as the main topic.
At the fashion market the guests were able to purchase clothes from Danish brands and from the wardrobes of well-known people in the fashion industry. During and after the fashion market it was also possible to bid on selected front-row outfits from Copenhagen Fashion Week SS19 through Tradono by Trendsales.
In total the CFW Fashion Market collected DKK 50.695,75 (€ 6.800). Today the money were handed over to Camilla Erika Lerberg, CEO in the Engagement department at Save the Children.
“In Save the Children we are incredibly pleased with the cooperation between Tradono by Trendsales and Copenhagen Fashion Week. We want to draw attention to sustainability, also in childrens’ universe. It’s very important to us to teach our children about consumption and the importance of resuing. We also want to teach them about the importance in helping and supporting other children, who are in need. This is what our concept ‘Child-to-Child’ is about. The money from the CFW Fashion Market will go to Save the Children’s national , which runs Sunday September 2nd. Thank you for your support!”
