Copenhagen’s annual Fashion Summit saw designers, activists, and businesspeople come together in the industry’s biggest sustainable fashion conference. Princess Mary of Denmark, a patron of the Summit, once again boasted some of the most elegant eco-friendly fashion in her visit to the two-day forum. Some of her looks may have caused a little more “drama” than the others, but the princess’ wardrobe was overall a chic and sophisticated example of sustainability meets style.
Princess Mary has been a regular attendee of the Copenhagen Fashion Summit, and an advocate for sustainable practices in fashion for several years. Her speech gave a report on the pressing need of change in the industry and how the Summit is taking charge on environmental fashion movements.
Day 1 – Recycled Bottle Skirt
Princess Mary wore a blue and white color block skirt made entirely out of recycled bottles, custom designed by Charlotte Eskildsen of Designers Remix. Her suede sky blue heels were by Gianvito Rossi and her royal blue clutch by Hugo Boss.
Day 2 – The “Conscious” Fashion Faux Pas
The princess donned this gorgeous green dress from the H&M Conscious Collection, dedicated to sustainable fashion created from recycled or organic materials–only she decided to cut it into a skirt. Upcycling from recycling for double the eco-friendly innovation.
Who else decided to wear the exact same outfit, cutting the same dress into a skirt and even pairing it with a nearly identical white men’s button-up? This fashion journalist and fellow attendee of the Summit, Signe Wenneberg.
Og nu skete dette! Hvilket er ret utroligt – for vi har tilsyneladende begge fået en skrædder til at sy en kjole fra #hmconsciousexclusive om til en nederdel og valgt en hvid herreskjorte til… Jeg havde sættet på i går på Dag 1. Kronprinsessen er fotograferet i dag på Dag 2.

Needles to say, Wenneberg was highly excited to share the same look as Her Royal Highness.
