Danish Fashion Ethical Charter and Diversity

Brands must sign and agree to align with the Danish Fashion Ethical Charter. The brands who have not yet signed the document will receive it separately. Read more about the Danish Fashion Ethical Charter here. When partaking at CPHFW, brands agree to consider diversity and inclusion for models as well as staff.

Brands must must recognise that diversity covers aspects such as gender, age, cultural background, nationality, ethnicity, physical/mental abilities, political and religious belief, sexual orientation. Inclusion is the process of involving, accepting, and respecting all people at the workplace and during the show regardless of their differences.

We strongly emphasise brands to not only focus on the model cast but to hire backstage staff with expertise on e.g. treating different skin and/or hair types and to brief them thoroughly with all information needed to treat models according to their needs.
