The Swedish Fashion Association will present its Stockholm Fashion Week from August 31 to September 2, 2022.
“This year, Stockholm Fashion Week will be launched with the Swedish School of Textiles, which will produce a show featuring around 30 graduate students at Stadsgårdsterminalen, a venue which this year will serve as a hub for shows, exhibitions, and performances for the public’s enjoyment,” said the Swedish Fashion Association in a statement.
On Wednesday afternoon, the brand Louise Xin Couture will unveil its latest collection with a runway show which will be broadcast on screens in six European countries. This final fashion show of the day will be followed by the annual Incentive to Action Award, which will be presented at the Nobis Hotel in Stockholm.
In addition to its productions, the event will also lead a discussion on working conditions in the textile industry with European Parliament member Raphaël Glucksmann, who has denounced the violation of human rights of the Uyghur community. Activist and former Uyghur inmate Jewher Ilham, industry expert Cay Bond, and actress Alicia Agneson will also be on hand to testify in the discussion.
On the creative front, Styles and Sellpy will hold a fashion show on Thursday. A number of events have also been planned for the final day. Placebo Digital Fashion House will present its ready-to-wear collection, which has been entirely designed using virtual reality, with a showcase. The presentation is designed to showcase the possibilities that the digital world can offer.
To conclude the fashion week, five Ukrainian labels will be highlighted with a showcase comprising Alona Cini, Leko, Limarenko, Pitaya, and Purpure Queen.
“As their own platform is threatened by current circumstances, we are happy to give them a chance to showcase their work in Sweden,” said the Swedish Fashion Association.
