HFW 2020 DIGITAL 3D &
DESIGNER RESIDENCY PROGRAM

Global Live-streaming in partnership with international broadcasting partner

15 international sustainable designers have been selected to take part in our Designer Residency Program which will launch the 6th edition of Helsinki Fashion Week. During the residency, designers will collaborate and work together and focus on transparency, collaboration, and will reuse materials to create their entire collections.

The residency will be filmed and live-streamed every day together with partner global broadcasting company. Helsinki Fashion Week will turn the Designer Residency concept into an interactive game-like process creating results that cannot be planned fully or foreseen at the start of the design process. Using technology implemented in real life to communicate with the mainstream in realtime, creating a new co-creative web that enables conscious collaboration and change.

Communication is a two-way street and by sharing insights and information by engaging with the community through cyberspace and the documentary series, we create experiences and access to embrace diverse ways of doing, sharing, knowing and learning about what sustainability really means and how is it being implemented. To scale our vision and impact across industries, we will be partnering with experts from a range of disciplines, including science, technology, and innovation who will be joining the residency as mentors.

DIGITAL
SUSTAINABILITY

We are moving forward with our existing knowledge and becoming responsible in cyberspace, focusing on digital sustainability and taking into consideration the opportunities and threats large-scale automation presents, the social sustainability aspects affecting the mental and physical health but also the design process.

Focusing on sustainability from the very start, we are now taking sustainability to a whole new environment. We are using digital tools to strengthen our digital community, experience, and connection but most importantly letting our creativity run wild as there are no limitations in cyberspace.

In 2020 Helsinki Fashion Week is partnering with Normative and other tech partners to audit the activity of the event to set data and fact-based targets for the rest of the industry. Focusing on action, HFW will once again set the example and record to inspire the industry to follow.
