The Summit 2017 ended with a festive dinner celebration co-hosted by Copenhagen International Fashion Fair. The Summit patron, Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, was in attendance and accompanied by more than 300 of the Summit's VIP guests, ending the day on a high note. The dinner took place within view of Denmark's world famous Little Mermaid at a waterside venue on the Langelinie promenade.
At Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2017, attendees had the opportunity to dance for a good cause. By the end of the day, Dance Deal raised more than €25,000 for charity! For every dance performed, the C&A Foundation donated €50 to Remake, an initiative designed to ignite a conscious consumer movement. Remake’s stories about the people who make our clothes rebuild the human connection between the women who buy and the women who create our clothes, mobilising consumers to be curious and buy better.
Upon arrival at this year's Copenhagen Fashion Summit, many guests put their used clothes in a huge recycling bin provided by H&M at the entrance of the Copenhagen Concert Hall. The symbolic message was clear: By disposing of garments in a recycling bin, the participants actively showed their support for accelerating the transition towards a circular fashion system and our Call to Action for a Circular Fashion System. Making used clothes part of a closed loop is something you can always do.
