Nordic Fashion Association (NFA) was inaugurated in 2008 by the five Nordic fashion organisations: Danish Fashion Institute; Helsinki Design Week; Icelandic Fashion Council; Oslo Fashion Week; and Swedish Fashion Council. The organisation has the core purpose of gathering the Nordic fashion industry and collectively embark on the process of working with, and implementing, socially responsible and sustainable principles.
The five Nordic countries are globally known for a socially responsible business manner and are often referred to as clean and ethical. Therefore, this project coheres very well with the values and
image the Nordic region already has. Furthermore, the Nordic countries share a tradition of high national social and environmental standards.
By teaming up, the five Nordic countries can pool knowledge and gain critical mass and actually make a difference in terms of influencing the world's fashion production.
