Sustainable Fashion Panel + Pop Up Showroom

Tutustu kestävään muotiin ja tue paikallisia ja vastuullisia muotimerkkejä

Pohjoismaat ovat suuria pikamuodin tuottajia ja kuluttajia, mutta viime vuosina elämäntapoja on alettu muuttaa kestävämpään suuntaan. Miten Pohjoismaat voivat nousta muodin kiertotalouden edelläkävijöiksi, ja miten omasta vaatekaapista voi tehdä entistä vastuullisemman?

Tule mukaan paneelikeskusteluun, jonka aiheena on Kestävä muoti Pohjoismaissa: pikamuotiteollisuuden kielteiset vaikutukset ja niiden torjuminen. Keskustelemassa ovat vastuullisuusvaikuttaja ja luennoitsija Outi Pyy, ompeluvallankumoustiimi Fæbrikin Mari Nordén ja hitaaseen muotiin keskittyvän Forét-merkin perustajiin kuuluva Jeppe Meier. Keskustelua moderoi Fashion Revolution Sverigen Fiona Sjöberg. Tapahtumaa voi seurata myös verkossa: https://www.wedonthavetime.org/event/cop26.

Sustainable Fashion Panelin jälkeen pidetään Pop Up Showroom, jossa nähdään pienten, paikallisten ja vastuullisten suomalaisbrändien tuotteita. Innovatiivisia muotilöytöjä tehdessä voi nauttia musiikista, vegaanipurtavista ja paikallisten tuottajien juomista.

Tapahtuma on osa YK:n COP26-ilmastokokouksen pohjoismaisen hubin ohjelmaa.

Jeppe Meier (DK) founded the Copenhagen based fashion brand Forét together with his childhood friend Jesper Finderup in 2014. In a world that is constantly moving at the speed of light, we end up missing the finer details in life. Using their eye for detail and design simplicity, they wanted to solve this, and provide slow goods for the journey. They created Forét to inspire the everyday person to slow down, go offline & explore our nature; using high quality fabrics, made from responsible materials.
