Event description
The Sustainable Fashion Forum spotlights brands and innovators from Sweden that have a positive impact on the Fashion industry

About this Event

THE PLOT

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.
