The past 3 days have been pretty intense for me! I have attended the Youth Fashion Summit, which has been one of the most amazing experiences during my studies. It made me reflect upon real facts and truth behind the fashion industry and as a conscious consumer, mother, citizen and future designer, it is my job to help create a more sustainable world for the future generation to come. If before I knew about sustainability, now I feel more than ready to take actions and make a difference. I learned a lot from more than 1,100 leading voices of the fashion industry including my fellow students; Knowledge that I will take with me forever and share with the world.
As the most polluting industry in the world, the fashion industry needs to change now! At the Youth Fashion Summit, we the next fashion generation, stated our voices and gave 7 demands to major fashion players, challenging them to act now and make a change.
I feel proud and excited to have had the chance and opportunity to be a part of Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2014, placed at Copenhagen Opera House. I feel happy to see that there are a lot of us who are willing to take the first steps toward a more sustainable world.
We are all aware that our human actions are affecting and impacting the world, socially and environmentally, but what are we actually doing about this? We need to stop over-consumption and slow down. I am looking forward to share with all of you the knowledge and information that I gained during the event in my further posts. By now I just want to share some pictures from the event, which was a great opportunity to network and meet inspiring people from all over the world.
