During Fashion Week Trade, February 3-8,2020, Stockholm Fashion District launches a new platform for creative presentations and fashion shows and at the same time open up for the opportunity to create public events.
Stockholm Fashion District has a strong reputation of being a dynamic and powerful meeting place. During Fashion Week Trade, the district is expanded to give room for meetings, the development of new skills and creativity along with the obvious and important trade perspective. Now, the offer is further strengthened with an arena for creativity with presentations, fashion shows and public events. At the new platform brands get further opportunities to showcase their design and creative process in meetings with buyers and in some cases even with end consumer. This direct contact will give insight to the creative process, the importance of sustainable consumption, raises the status for the fashion industry and will provide feedback for a more market-adapted production.
“We are facing a big and exciting change in our industry and everyone needs to review their business models and information, including Stockholm Fashion District. We are a young and fast-moving cluster that builds potential and provide business benefits for our customers. Through our new venture, we want to create a platform where new creative initiatives can shown to a wider audience,” says Helena Waker, CEO of Trade Partners Sweden and Stockholm Fashion District. “Fashion is equal parts creativity and trade. Creativity must be given room for trade to continue to develop,” continues Helena Waker.
More information about participating brands will follow, but the first presentation on Wednesday, February 5, 2020 is dedicated to Stockholm Fashion District.
