Today, more than 350 fashion experts, politicians, NGO’s, academics and celebrities will come together at the Copenhagen Opera House to discuss sustainable business practices in the fashion industry.

The Fashion Summit, organized by the Nordic Initiative Clean and Ethical (NICE), will include an exhibit showcasing materials and textiles made out of organic, recycled and renewable resources.

The summit will end with a sustainable runway show celebrating pieces by twenty Nordic fashion designers. Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mary of Denmark will present a prize to the winning designer.

Looks like this is where to find all of the fun and (recycled) glitter at COP15.
