Designers’ Nest is a talent incubator showcasing and supporting the best fashion graduates from the Nordic countries.

Designers’ Nest is a non-profit initiative that supports fashion talents from the Nordic countries in their early stages after graduation. It features graduate designers who show high levels of originality, creativity, craftsmanship and responsible design.
Each year 10 finalists are selected to present their graduate work at a joint fashion show at Copenhagen Fashion Week. Awarded designers receive mentorships, internships and support to produce a commercial collection. In partnership with a museum, an Exhibition Prize is awarded to select designers that will be featured in a museum exhibition. Designers are selected by director Ane Lynge-Jorlén and a panel of industry experts.

For the 2021 edition, Browns Fashion will handpick a designer and in collaboration with the Bear Scouts, the designer’s collection will be produced sustainably and available to purchase in Browns Fashion boutiques as well as online at brownsfashion.com. Bottega Veneta will offer one designer a 6-month internship at the studio in Milan.One designer will be awarded a monetary prize of of 50.000 DKK. The Exhibition Prize will be awarded to select designers who will be included in a fashion exhibition at the museum Prins Eugen Waldemarsudde in Stockholm. All finalists will receive a profile on Eyes on Talents, an invite-only platform that connects talents with established designers and brands.

Designers' Nest talents have gone on to Givenchy, Maison Margiela, Acne Studios and Ganni.

Nordic fashion talents are all invested in designing for a more responsible future. Recycling, upcycling, use of dead stock and non-toxic dyes are just some of the methods they use. Moreover, at Designers’ Nest they present unique one-off work produced as part of their graduation collections.
