About this event

  • What do you know about startups in the Norwegian fashion world? 
  • And what about the fashion ecosystem here in Oslo?
  • Are new businesses in fashion trying to make a difference? If so, how?
  • Are you wondering what innovation will come from the fashion industry?

We are excited to announce our next event, which will take a closer look at two of Oslo’s finest fashion startups:

  • F5: a design driven, multibrand retail concept, focusing on Norwegian design, as well as a multidisciplinary design agency, focusing on fashion and interior. 
  • New Movements: a new kind of sneaker brand, which makes impactful leather sneakers by using less energy and less virgin plastic. The company has also paired up with the plastic waste movement Empower to clean up ocean plastic.

Whether you are a lover of fashion, a design or fashion student, or simply curious to find out more about the fashion startup scene in Oslo, this event will give some great insights into the fashion ecosystem and the advantages and challenges of producing and selling high quality Norwegian designs.
