Stockholm Fashion Week starts today – Make it last is there to give you reports on the most sustainable styles.
Stylein spring 2016
Today marks the start of the three day long fashion week in Stockholm. We’ll be covering it with Make it last glasses on; looking for the more sustainable aspects of the collections on display (that will reach stores in fall 2016). In these circumstances, what you find in terms of sustainability is collections or garments that have a classic, timeless, long-lasting feel; things that you want to keep for longer than a season. But who knows, maybe, hopefully!, there’ll be some innovation when it comes to materials, working conditions, casting or other conscious aspects. Time will tell! We’re excited to see what newcomer Giorgi Rostiashvili has to offer, as well as how innovative this years’ class from The Swedish School of Textile manages to be. We’ll also be on the lookout for modern classic by Filippa K, Whyred, Stylein and Altewai Saome, as well as the unexpected turn of events that Ann-Sofie Back and Cheap Monday spoil us with every season.
On the first day’s schedule are: Ida Sjöstedt, Stylein, Minimarket, Morris Heritage, J Lindeberg Woman, Woodwood, Whyred, Swedish Fashion Talents, Maria Nilsdotter and Björn Borg. On Tuesday, By the No, By Malina, Filippa K, Carin Wester, Cheap Monday, House of Dagmar and Giorgi Rostiashvili will showcase. And then the last day, Wednsday, will give us Hunkydory, Back, Stand, Ida Klamborn, The Swedish School of Textiles, Edwin Trieu, Altewaisaome, Mayla and Lamija. Stay with us!
