Copenhagen Fashion Week (CPHFW), the leading Nordic biannual fashion week, is proud to announce its novel Advisory Board including Danish and international members within the field of fashion and sustainability. The new Advisory Board covers a vast area of expertise to further advance CPHFW ‘s efforts to be an agenda-setting platform and event.

In January 2019, CPHFW established a Sustainability Advisory Board to help inspire and inform its overall sustainability strategy and sustainability action plan. Now, the former Sustainability Advisory Board will turn into the main Advisory Board of Copenhagen Fashion Week since sustainability is integral to all its activities, and as a result, a list of new members is welcomed.

The Advisory Board will provide insights and feedback on e.g., the 2023 Sustainability Requirements or upcoming projects moving forward, CPHFW said in a media release.

Copenhagen Fashion Week is a business foundation governed by a board of directors composed of Danish industry representatives and led by CEO Thorsmark. The advisory board has no legal function but serves to inspire and further inform current and future projects.

“It’s brilliant to see the Copenhagen Fashion Week take the talk to the walk on sustainability. Not only will this create an authentic and necessary change in expectations but set a new bar for shows – and brands – globally. I’m thrilled to be representing Textile Exchange on the new Advisory Board and especially looking forward to contributing to ‘smart materials’ – a critical area for change and core to our mission at Textile Exchange,” said Truscott.
