In June 2018, Stockholm Fashion District instituted an award to raise awareness and bring attention to important ideas in sustainability, digitization and fashion tech. Stockholm Fashion District always work inclusive and, together with important organizations and stakeholders in our network, we assign selected companies and brands recognition for a performance that can be a product, a project or equivalent. The award should also be seen as an encouragement to continue on the entered path. In this way, we want to participate in creating awareness and bring attention to important ideas in sustainability in our industry.
