Copenhagen Fashion Week has been selected as one of the 30 semi-finalists of the 2020 European Social Innovation Competition (EUSIC): Reimagine Fashion among over 760 entries from all over Europe. Copenhagen Fashion Week, with fashion brands and companies, strives towards making substantial changes to the way the event is executed.
Copenhagen Fashion Week has been selected for its plans to reinvent the event by introducing minimum sustainability requirements for any brand wishing to participate - thereby transitioning from being a traditional fashion week to becoming a platform for industry change, according to a press release on the show.
The EUSIC is a challenge prize run by the European Commission across all EU member states and Horizon 2020 associated countries. Now, in its eighth year, the competition acts as a beacon for social innovators in Europe - employing a proven methodology for supporting early-stage ideas and facilitating the emerging of a network of radical innovators shaping our society for the better.
