Global Fashion Agenda announced that the Copenhagen Fashion summit is postponed to October due to growing concerns around the COVID-19 outbreak.

The central business event on sustainability in fashion every year sets discussions on the most critical environmental issues facing the fashion industry. It started in 2009 with a mission to drive urgent change within the framework of the UN’s Global Goals.
