Over 100 of the next generation's fashion designers have gathered in Copenhagen to make demands for the future.

Youth Fashion Summit gathers talented young design students from the whole world in Copenhagen. For three days leading up to the Copenhagen Fashion Summit, they have discussed how to change the future of fashion. The discussions have been based on the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals, and the perspective have been what the industry will look like in 2030. The areas addressed have been water resources, gender equality, empowerment, infrastructure and more.

Today, the students presented their results at the Copenhagen Fashion Summit, in front of more than 1,000 CEOs, top designers, politicians and decision makers. The students of the Youth Fashion Summit demanded that the fashion industry makes real changes for the next generation to experience and build on.

“It is a fact that we have reached a point of no return. The earth will never be the same as before we started to over-consume natural resources. However, realism and positivity can still be said in the same sentence. We are the next generation and we have to believe that we can change the fashion industry’s future. It is not about what is going to happen in 2050, but about what is going to happen tomorrow As the voice of the next generation, we demand sustainable fashion as a standard and not an option,” says Janni Krogh from the Youth Fashion Summit.
