Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2020

Redesigning Value

Creativity and ingenuity built the fashion industry – can they also transform it?

Summit 2020

The time for a reset has arrived. When our industry begins to recover post-pandemic, we must be ambitious in rebuilding a better new normal. There will only be a green lining to this crisis if we take the opportunity to learn how we can reconcile our aspirations for short-term survival and prosperity with the desire to establish a long-term thriving industry that is environmentally, socially and economically sound.

Redesigning value will prompt us to create more resilient businesses by bringing sustainable practices to the core of business models. Let’s come together at the Summit to create lasting change and impact by rethinking how fashion operates.

What to Expect


As always Copenhagen Fashion Summit will present an outstanding line-up of high-level speakers and panels on its stages. Speaker names to be released in the coming months.


Discover the world’s most promising sustainable solution providers who turn words into action. This curated exhibition area is designed to help small and large fashion businesses alike speed up or embark on their sustainability journey.


Educating, inspiring and empowering creative directors and their design teams is thus essential in transforming fashion into a more responsible industry. Curated by creative directors for creative directors, Design Studio will showcase a responsible value chain from a designer’s perspective and present sustainable solutions.


An international hub for sustainable fashion, the Summit expands out from the two-day schedule to include a programme of side events hosted by leading organisations from fashion and related industries.
