Stockholm Fashion District always work inclusive and, together with important organizations and stakeholders in our network, we assign selected companies and brands recognition for a performance that can be a product, a project or equivalent. The award should also be seen as an encouragement to continue on the entered path. In this way, we want to participate in creating awareness and bring attention to important ideas in sustainability in our industry.

Reuse where waste/the impact is minimized so much that a cycle exists or is perceived as an opportunity close in time. New business models and ways of doing business become the solution to the problem of continued consumption in a more sustainable way with respect for raw materials, the environment and people.
Digital and technological advances that have led to or in the near future will lead to a positive sustainable change. We encourage those who with new technology have found solutions and interconnected fashion with new technology. Tech stands for development and the importance of daring to be visionary and lead the way for others.
