Vogue Business Roundtable

This season, Zalando will discuss “What it takes to make the fashion industry circular” at the CPHFW round table. A successful circular economy requires the fashion industry to turn used clothes into new pieces. The industry has also begun to recognise that it cannot operate within the limits of the planet and that brands cannot meet their sustainability goals if they do not figure out how to recycle on a large scale. Join the debate on some of the current challenges facing the industry in relation to circularity.

The talk will be led by Lucy Maguire, trends editor at Vogue Business, and will feature Laura Coppen, head of circularity at Zalando, Anna Vilén, head of communications for Sysav’s SipTex innovation project, and Andrea Baldo, CEO of Ganni. It will take place on Wednesday 10 August from 09:15 to 10:00 (the last 10 minutes are reserved for Q&A) – accompanied by a networking breakfast from 08:15 to 09:15. At H9, Copenhagen.
