Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2016

Tuesday, May 12th

As patron, Crown Princess Mary attended the world's largest event on sustainable fashion  Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2016, here, which took place at DR's Concert House.

Copenhagen Fashion Summit was last held two years ago. This year 'responsible innovation' acted theme of the event and features the Crown Princess as patron and one of the keynote speakers, who opened the 4th edition of the summit with her speech in English. In her speech she talked about the importance of a sustainable fashion industry for the economic, environment and socially. She arrived to DR's Concert House at Amager in the morning to attend the official opening of Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2016, which is the world's largest event on sustainable fashion gathering representatives from all over the world. More than 1200 people are part of the summit this year. The Crown Princess was welcomed by Roberta at 4, who was the luck girl to hand over a bouquet of flowers to the Crown Princess. The Crown Princess has attended the summit three times before - in 2009, 2012 and 2014. She listed to several speakers and panel debates during her visit at the summit. Many of the attendances had enjoyed a dinner with the Crown Prince couple the day before, when they hosted a dinner on occasion, here, of the Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2016 at Frederik VIII's Palace, Amalienborg.

Fashion with a purpose is what all this is about. The fashion industry is huge worldwide business. Millions are each year spend on the fashion industry, which is why we need to be aware of our responsibility. Sustainable fashion and in general sustainable solutions are a way to go. Sustainability is good for all of us. Fashion is all about creativity, innovative solutions, having fun and expressing who you are. By choosing the sustainable choices, you show that you actually care about others, not just yourself.

So now, when we are talking about fashion it is time to talk about what Mary wore at the event. At the evening dinner the day before, she really impressed all of us with her new Hennes & Mauritz dress. At the opening she wore a lovely new off-white lace skirt. I have no idea who identified it first, but I am glad to they did. It is from Hennes & Mauritz from their Premium Quality collection. Pretty sure it is not the last time we are going to see her in this wonder. Imagine it worn with something navy blue, powder pink or burgundy. As goes with the first, she wore a brand new white button-down shirt found by Kate at Hennes & Mauritz (collection: Conscious Exclusive) as well. Mary embraced the style with feminine and classy accessories. She wore earrings from Dulong Fine Jewelry and a diamond bracelet. I can't tell where it is from, simply because I do not know. Then we have a latte beige clutch from Naledi Copenhagen and nude pumps from Prada. These pieces have been worn at several other occasion, both with trousers and other skirts. Love how she manages to look this splendid with nothing else than a simply ponytail and natural makeup. I adore it when she wears these monochrome looks. Makes me wanna try something similar.
