Diversity on the SS20 Runway

Copenhagen Fashion Week SS20 brought a new level of diversity to the runway — a development which we find essential and which indicates a positive change in the industry.

Working with UN Sustainable Development Goal 10 — Reduced Inequalities — Copenhagen Fashion Week advocate for greater diversity in the fashion industry regarding, for example: ability, age, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, size and socio-economic status. The brands and modelling agencies participating in Copenhagen Fashion Week are all obliged to sign the Danish Fashion Ethical Charter that is set in place to ensure the well-being of employees in the Danish fashion industry. And although Copenhagen Fashion Week is not in a position to directly influence the brands’ choice of models for a show or presentation on the official schedule, we highly encourage diversity on the runway.

With brands like Ganni, Stine Goya, Soulland, Rodebjer and Holzweiler, among many others, bringing diversity represented through gender, race, sexuality, age, size and body types, it’s evident that change is on it’s way.
