Welcome to The YOUTH FASHION SUMMIT, a part of COPENHAGEN FASHION SUMMIT 2012. The YOUTH FASHION SUMMIT gathers 75-100 of the most talented young Design and Business school students in Europe to give the fashion industry their take on a sustainable fashion future.
Trough webinars, assignments and workshops the students will work together to create a framework for engaging consumers on the sustainable consumption of fashion. Consumers have a significant part to play in the process of transforming the fashion industry towards more sustainable business models. However, at present, they are limited in their influence by several factors.
