Copenhagen Fashion Week Acknowledges Industry’s Damage to the Environment with Giant Clothing Swap



Copenhagen Fashion Week is coming up in a few days and yes, there will be runway shows (which we'll be covering here), but more importantly, there'll be a giant citywide free clothing swap to support the trade event's commitment to sustainability. 

The Danish Fashion Institute will host a Fashion Exchange Market at City Hall Square from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, August 10.

As Denmark's Minister of the Environment put it (he'll be speaking at the event), "The fashion industry is amongst the industries that have the most adverse impact on health and environment. Therefore it is important that the fashion industry takes responsibility of prolonging the life of their products.” (Copenhagen Fashion Week included that quote in a press release, by the way, which would never ever happen in New York City.)
