Garden of Good: green fashion in Copenhagen

Mittwoch, Januar 25th, 2012 -

Sustainable fashion showrooms and platforms are conquering the fashion weeks in Europe. After the recent launch of Ethical Fashion Show Berlin and MINT in Amsterdam, a presence of sustainable fashion in Copenhagen seems to be a logical development.

From 2nd until 4th February the creative community ArtRebels will organize a showroom at Gallery in Copenhagen as part of Copenhagen Fashion Week. They will be showcasing a selection of designers including Underprotection, MaxJenny, SCA ULVEN, Maska, and Phucisme.

The showroom Garden of Good is dedicated to sustainable production. ArtRebels has selected brands with interesting stories, innovative design and sustainable and fair trade practices. Their goal is to challenge the perception that sustainable design is puritanical, and instead present it as interesting and innovative.

ArtRebels is a creative community based in Copenhagen, Denmark, that unites designers, artists, filmmakers, musicians and other creative souls from all over the world. Their mission is to create, promote and support creative projects while endorsing social responsibility, and to move people and businesses in new directions.


 

Esther Perbandt AW2012 collection

Donnerstag, Januar 12th, 2012 -

Next week Esther Perbandt will present her Autumn/Winter Collection 2012 at Capsule Berlin. What you can look forward to is a collection kept completely in black with recyclable chains and deconstructed tartan that reminds of elegant aesthetics in old Hitchcock movies. 60 % of the fabrics used for the sample collection are sustainable and with the final collection she aims to increase that amount even more. Visit the Esther Perbandt sales page for more information and the actual Lookbook.

The Capsule trade show started in New York in 2007 and made its debut in Berlin last summer. Now for the second time it provides a platform for contemporary fashion and young labels from the premium segment. Edina Sultanik, one of the main organisers explains how they came up with the idea for the new ‘anti’-fair. Unsatisfied with existing fairs, their aim was to create a new fair with an avant-garde touch and cool flair. The first Capsule became an instant success. Read the complete (German) interview here.

We are excited to participate this year and present Esther Perbandt’s new collection. So don’t miss stopping by when you come to the city next week.
