During Copenhagen Fashion Week, we will be hosting two talks at CIFF.
Thursday, August 10th (10-10:45 AM):
NEW REVENUE STREAMS FOR BRANDS AND RETAILERS?
The EU Textile strategy aim to make fast fashion go out of fashion, so how do we create business models that meet the future?
What business models can slow down the fashion system, make it become more resource efficient, more circular and still economically viable?
Are circular business models a new way to assure revenue and how are the models performing on the market?
During this conversation we are looking into three circular business models: repair, rent and resale.
- Thomas Vangsgaard, CEO at Spejder Sport.
- Anna Österdahl, Sustainability Lead, Les Deux
- Amalie Bjerager Arnesen, Co-founder & CEO at FJONG Danmark.
Moderator: Frederik Thrane, Project Manager, Circular Economy, Lifestyle & Design Cluster
Friday, August 11th (11-11:45 AM):
PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS
Fashion is embarking on a transformative journey towards transparency, regulation and innovation.
Especially in the Nordic, we are perceived as responsible but is the industry willing to invest in documenting this? Is blockchain the long-awaited evolution for fashion? A tool for transparency, documentation and competitive advantage?
Soon there is not room for keeping secrets in the supply chain and as a brand you must track and trace one thread at a time towards a consumer-facing transparency.
During this conversation specialist from brands, research and technology will discuss how technology not only supports the industry in meeting coming legislation but shows inspiring examples and collaborations that makes brands more competitive.
