A great new website has launched called Nordic Fashion Association
It is a collaborative process between the five Nordic fashion organisations: The Danish Fashion Institute; Helsinki Design Week; The Icelandic Fashion Council; Oslo Fashion Week; and the Swedish Fashion Council with the core purpose of gathering the Nordic fashion industry and collectively embarking on the process of working with, and implementing, socially responsible and sustainable principles.
Globally the five Nordic countries are well known for a socially responsible business manner and are often referred to as clean and ethical. Therefore, this project coheres very well with the values and image of the Nordic region. Furthermore, the Nordic countries share a tradition of high national social and environmental standards. By teaming up, the five Nordic countries can pool knowledge and gain critical mass and actually make a difference in terms of influencing the world’s fashion production.
Together the association are working on various projects including a Fashion Summit, which will take place on the 9th of December 2009 in Copenhagen.
