Meet the Nordics opens today
For the seventh consecutive time, the popular press event Meet the Nordics will take place during Copenhagen Fashion Week. The event provides an inspirational networking opportunity for press and buyers, allowing them to fully experience the people and ideas behind a selection of Nordic brands across the fields of fashion, design and beauty.
“Scandinavia is known for its leading role within sustainability, and with Copenhagen Fashion Week as a meeting point for this important matter, we are very proud to be able to gather so many relevant brands working with sustainability, each season. With Meet The Nordics, we wish for local and visiting press to explore the leading Nordic sustainable brands and discover the new and upcoming brands. We put a lot of work into finding the right brands for the season and love having stable brands as Filippa K, but at the same time, are able to introduce over 18 number of new Nordic brands as the new bag brand 1602 and Magasin’s own sustainable fashion- and lifestyle brand – Magasin du Nord collection,” states Anette Kjærgaard and Kim Grenaa.
With an ambition to be a platform for discussion and shared opinions and perspectives, Meet the Nordics is hosting a panel talk with industry insiders with the aim to share experiences and foster an inspiring industry dialogue on sustainability. The panel consists of representatives from Designers Remix, Filippa K, Mercedes-Benz, 1602, as well as CEO of Copenhagen Fashion Week, Cecilie Thorsmark. The talk is moderated by Moussa Mchangama.
Meet the Nordics takes place Wednesday 29 January at Fredericia Furniture from 8.00 – 11.00.
By invitation only.
