Sustainability at the forefront

Each finalist will be part of the schedule this coming season, showcasing in the official Zalando venue. The winner will be announced at a ceremony during AW22.

Eyes on talent

This season, the Talent Slot has been awarded to Jade Cropper, whose eponymous brand focuses on the principles of challenging conventional notions of female beauty, through her signature deconstructed design using sustainable materials and handmade prints.

As part of Copenhagen Fashion Week’s focus on supporting young voices, Julie Gilhart, CDO of Tomorrow Ltd. & President of Tomorrow Projects, will continue as our Talent mentor offering a mentorship program to Jade Cropper.

“As we continue to focus on the responsibility of our industry to incubate and strengthen the future of Nordic fashion, we are excited to welcome Jade Cropper as this season’s Talent and take the opportunity to introduce her exceptional vision to our international audience.” – Cecilie Thorsmark, CEO Copenhagen Fashion Week

“Winning the talent slot means the world to me. Getting recognition for all the work I have put into my designs is truly wonderful. You can expect a more mature line up than the previous one, but with the same DNA in the designs.” – Jade Cropper, Founder
