Copenhagen Fashion Week: Vestiaire Collective set up a lending lounge at hotel Skt. Petri

In line with Copenhagen Fashion Week, which closes its doors today on August 9th, 2019, Vestiaire Collective (curated by Alexandra Carl, Stylist and Fashion Director of RIKA magazine) offered a lending lounge at hotel Skt. Petri consisting of a selection of pieces from Vestiaire Collective’s global wardrobe as well as beloved Danish brands such as GANNI, Stine Goya, Soulland and Brøgger. 

With the initiative, Vestiaire Collective aimed to raise awareness of a conscious, circular approach to fashion where the lifespan of a garment is extended through resale and reuse, playing into Copenhagen Fashion Week’s shared values of sustainability.

“I’m really excited to team up with Vestiaire Collective on this initiative to improve the cycle of clothes, the longevity of designer pieces and to raise awareness to the responsibility we have. Especially as tastemakers and influencers we should embrace the opportunity to not just promote upcoming collections and pieces available for instant purchase, but actually highlight incredible existing designs as well and make them just as exciting and desirable to consumers,” states Alexandra Carl, Fashion Director RIKA magazine and curator of the lending lounge.

“We are very excited to partner with Vestiaire Collective and together strengthen the reach and impact of our shared vision of sustainability in the fashion industry. Copenhagen Fashion Week is currently on a journey to intensify our sustainability efforts — both as an event and as an industry platform, and joining forces with a pioneering and inspiring international company like Vestiaire Collective opens up for many interesting opportunities in relation to the further development of our fashion week,” states Cecilie Thorsmark, CEO Copenhagen Fashion Week.
