AW22 Fashion Week Roundup

All of the looks you can’t stand to miss

By Danielle Viljoen

Copenhagen is this year’s prelude to AW22 Fashion Week, one of the most anticipated fashion week periods with NYFW to follow. Copenhagen Fashion Week is, by far, the most sustainable participant amongst fashion weeks. This is due to designers’ eligibility to participate based on their adherence to strict sustainability guidelines.

‘Sustainability is the core focus area for Copenhagen Fashion Week. Copenhagen Fashion Week strives towards making substantial changes to the way the event is executed, and works to inspire and encourage the industry to take steps towards becoming more sustainable.”

CFW has employed many sustainable practices from immediate to long-term solutions. For example, they have banned the use of single-use plastic hangers, bottles and garment bags.

For models to appear on the official schedule, they must be signatories of the Danish Fashion Ethical Charter. The DFEC is an organization that promotes and ensures the well-being of employees in the Danish fashion industry. It’s key focus is to educate and support employees with vital and correct information on healthy eating and body ideals.

‘The Danish Fashion Ethical Charter seeks to ensure the well-being of employees in the Danish fashion industry and to contribute to the creation of relevant and appropriate information about eating disorders and about the beauty and body ideals the fashion industry is a part of creating. This includes, for example, models, editors, stylists, photographers, make-up artists and designers, all of whom play a role in establishing those ideals.’

We have hand-picked some of our favorite looks that give us serious layering inspo for this upcoming season.

This years' collection was like 80’s meets Y2K with patchwork being a key theme throughout. (di)vision mostly manufactures their clothing from deadstock fabrics making each piece unique.
