The Copenhagen Sustainable Fashion Summit which took place this May meant a fun few days of helping out at the event and wondering the streets of the city.
Walking around in Copenhagen is not easily comparable to a lot of other cities I have visited. There is such as sense of space which makes the whole experience a calm and easy one - not to mention the instantaneous happiness from the warmly toned yellow and orange buildings that line the streets. Glorious, I reckon!
There is so much to see in such a lovely city. The humungous statue of Mary Thomas* on the waterfront was a particular highlight and the botanical gardens are a must for any designer/plant enthusiastic/general lover of nature !
The Summit itself really reflected that the importance of sustainable practices are becoming more mainstream, which is so heartening! So many people are really invested in creating solutions to create a more viable industry and I’m so enthralled by the spirit of it. (Personal highlights being the ‘pineapple leather’ I came across, and learning that Salvatore Ferragamo are set to be the first luxury brand to use a silk alternative made from orange fibres!)
Awareness of a problem, followed by motivation of individuals have to be the first steps to fostering meaningful change.
