About this event


Stockholm Fashion Week was recently canceled in the name of climate impact and sustainability. The net effect? The “Sustainable Fashion Capital of the World” is gearing up to change the way the world produces, purchases and consumes clothes forever.

On November 21, The Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce in New York (SACCNY) invites you to hear directly from the bold players who canceled Stockholm Fashion Week and be among the first to hear what their strategy for influencing the global fashion industry toward a more sustainable system is. You will also be able to hear, meet and get inspired by Swedish trailblazers in fashion who are weaving sustainability into, not only the fabric of their designs and clothes but into society at large.

The Sustainable Fashion Forum presents carefully selected experts in FashionTech, innovation as well as fashion brands – not only touting a proven positive impact on the industry but inspiring sustainable production and consumption habits around the world.

    On track for collective impact

    SACCNY’s mission is to create synergies between Swedish and American companies and is now gearing its energy towards building a network of sustainability movers and shakers. In a time where we are battling the clock against climate change, we believe that business has a big role to play. By facilitating learning and building partnerships between companies across sectors and continents, we can move towards reducing negative impact faster. The Impact Track aims to build coordinated movements of global companies, social entrepreneurs and investors and shape an impact network based on the type of collaboration that scales impact.
