Copenhagen Fashion Week and Vestiaire Collective join forces to promote circular fashion
Copenhagen Fashion Week continues its partnership with Vestiaire Collective — the leading global community for premium and luxury pre-owned fashion, after a successful SS20.
For more than ten years, Vestiaire Collective has challenged the fashion industry with the simple yet disruptive concept ‘Buy, Sell, Share, Care’ and inspires fashion lovers across the globe to consume less but better — whilst selling items lying unworn in their own wardrobes. Believing that conscious consumption is required today to tackle tomorrow’s challenges, Vestiaire Collective and Copenhagen Fashion Week are renewing their successful partnership, with an aim to encourage steps towards a more circular approach to fashion.
“Sustainability is a core value for Copenhagen Fashion Week, and we aim to explore it in as many diverse ways as possible — highlighting its complexity. Partnering with Vestiaire Collective, we are given the opportunity to start a deeper conversation on consumer habits, how to take better care of our clothes and what happens to them when we no longer want to wear them. The lifespan of a garment is an important topic within the context of sustainable fashion, and we are excited to partner with Vestiaire Collective and inspire further conversation.” states Cecilie Thorsmark, CEO of Copenhagen Fashion Week.
“We are thrilled to partner with Copenhagen Fashion Week again on their mission to create the most sustainable Fashion Week. As industry players it is our responsibility to not only give consumers the possibility to make more sustainable choices via resale, but also educating them on why and how their choices make a difference for the future of our environment. Together with Copenhagen Fashion Week, we hope to put this topic at front of mind, encouraging a global audience to see beyond the limited venues of shows and events taking place that week. We are thrilled to work with Fashion: No Filter who will help spread the message far and wide.” states Sophie Hersan, Co-Founder & Fashion Director of Vestiaire Collective.
