Stella, Google and Centre for Sustainable Fashion Get a Jump on Copenhagen Summit 

LONDON — The Copenhagen Fashion Summit hasn’t officially started, but companies are already beginning to feel the heat.
Earlier this month, the latest report by Global Fashion Agenda and Boston Consulting Group said sustainable progress in the fashion industry has slowed, and if the slowdown continues at the current rate, Paris Agreement climate goals can’t be met.
In his opening remarks ahead of the summit Baptiste Carriere-Pradal, vice president of the sustainable apparel coalition, stressed the importance of collaboration.
“Mid-size companies are actually the ones who are progressing with their sustainability efforts because they don’t have such large dedicated sustainability departments, they’ve found solutions through collaboration and more companies should be banding together,” he said.
Retailers including Stella McCartney are also in favor of collaboration. On Wednesday morning Google, innovation consultants Current Global and Stella McCartney announced they were teaming to provide fashion brands with a data analytics machine learning tool powered by Google Cloud technology.
The tool will provide visibility and measure the environmental impacts of different textiles so that brands can make more responsible sourcing decisions in their supply chain.
McCartney will take part in the first pilot project, which plans to deep dive into the environmental impacts of cotton and viscose.
“Stella McCartney has been a forerunner in the fashion industry

After weeks of traveling through Europe, the immature William (Gethin Anthony, Game Of Thrones) finds himself at a crossroads in Copenhagen. Not just another beautiful European city, Copenhagen is also the birthplace of his father. When William meets pretty local girl Effy (Frederikke Dahl Hansen), they set off on an adventure to find his grandfather. Effy's mix of youthful exuberance and wisdom challenges William like no woman ever has. As the attraction builds and William finds himself truly connecting with someone for the first time in his life, he comes to this realization: if the girl of your dreams is half your age, maybe it’s time to grow up!

Playfulness Prevails at Copenhagen Fashion Week

Forget about minimal. Copenhagen Fashion Week, which ended its three-day run on Friday, was all about playful colors and prints. The palette reflected the upbeat mood that prevailed given that exports were up, especially to Germany. Buyers praised the region’s cool street-style scene, design talents and trade fairs.
Total exports of Danish fashion, which account for 60 percent of the Danish fashion industry’s output, rose 7 percent in the first quarter of 2015 to 7.02 billion Danish kroner, or $ 1.04 billion at current exchange, with exports to Germany, Holland and the United Kingdom being the main drivers of growth in volume terms.
For the first time since the 2007-08 crisis, domestic sales were up, posting a 4 percent increase at wholesale in the first quarter of 2015.
Michael Hillmose, head of international affairs of Dansk Fashion and Textile, the trade association for Danish textile and clothing companies, attributed the rise to shops also buying stock for their e-commerce sites. “We remain cautious and wait to see the full first-half numbers,” Hillmose said.
With exports being the lion’s share of business, Danish labels are plotting their international expansion by sending out colorful and high-end collections, a departure from a traditionally darker and easy-to-wear aesthetic, and focusing on different

Sara Lundberg Scoops Designers’ Nest Prize at Copenhagen Fashion Week

ROYAL PRIZE: Crown Princess Mary of Denmark wearing Danish label Fonnesbech presented Sara Lundberg with the Designers’ Nest prize.
The talent show and award organized by trade fair Revolver was held Friday afternoon during Copenhagen Fashion Week.
A jury that included London-based designer Peter Jensen, Eyes on Talents’ cofounder Guillaume de Piédoüe and fashion scholar Ane Lunge Jorlen selected the 28-year-old Swedish designer as the winner of the competition.
“She expressed the way we convey emotions today is through emojis, and how fashion has become a new community,” Lunge Jorlen explained.
“Her statement was very strong: fashion turned into a totem, a sculpture,” de Piédoüe said. The co-founder of the online platform for connecting brands with international design talents sees a “good combination of technical skills and creativity among Scandinavian designers.”
Lundberg, who just graduated from at the Swedish Schools of Textiles and cites Rei Kawakubo among her favorite designers, is to start a PhD in fashion design in Vilnius, Lithuania  this fall. “I want to discuss things, and continue to do projects about humanity,” she told WWD.
Lundberg was one of 24 students from eight schools in Nordic countries competing for the prize, valued at 50,000 Danish kroner, or $ 7,310 at current exchange.

Copenhagen Fashion Week to Kick Off

Copenhagen Fashion Week, which this season runs Aug. 5 to 7, is making a play to attract international attention by spotlighting emerging designers.
“We have a focus on nurturing new talents this season,” said Eva Kruse, chief executive officer of Copenhagen Fashion Week, which draws around 40,000 industry professionals.
To wit: It’s giving the opening show slot to Copenhagen-based brand Lovechild 1979, that made its runway debut last year with its spring collection.
It will be among the 30 women’s and men’s labels showing this season, including newcomers such as Saks Potts and T.A.C., a label designed by print specialist Tatiana Andersen Camre, who graduated from Central Saint Martins.
German brand Lala Berlin, a Berlin Fashion Week regular, is to show for the first time in the Danish capital, alongside homegrown talents such as Mark Kenly Domino Tan and Freya Dalsjø, plus established labels such as Henrik Vibskov, Baum und Pferdgarten and By Malene Birger.
Coinciding with the runway show days from Wednesday to Friday, the two trade fairs — Copenhagen International Fashion Fair and Revolver — that the region offers have reduced the number of locations. CIFF and CIFF Raven dedicated to men’s wear will be gathered at Bella Center, while Revolver will be
