“As an event, we are very unconventional. We are taking our audience to cyberspace,” said Evelyn Mora Founder of HFW, which made its debut in 2015 to spotlight sustainability. – WWD

“It’s important for companies to be able to communicate the development and the process of becoming more sustainable. Creating impact is the key. Greenwashing is happening and it is very misleading.”

“Reusing and repurposing garments is front and centre at Helsinki Fashion Week. Founder Evelyn Mora says the event only features “designers who have implemented sustainability into their core business”. It evaluates this by looking at criteria from raw material sourcing and fibre production to end-of-life management and brands’ mission and business models.” Vogue Business, February 2020

DEZEEN: ”Things are going to change. In the near future, maybe two to three years latest, it will happen for sure,” said Mora. “The companies have to go where the money is, and that’s where the consumers are – they are changing their minds and they’re starting to be more conscious.” Read the article here.

DEZEEN: Designers presented looks that brought together innovative new textiles, recycled materials and ethical manufacturing practices. Evelyn Mora has selected the five designers that most inspired her: Read the full article here.

“First of all, it starts with the event itself,” Evelyn Mora tells me, who founded Helsinki Fashion Week – the first recognized sustainable fashion week.“When you start producing a fashion show or week you need to make sure that the production partners are the right kind of companies. It would have been easy for us to partner with big businesses, but they’re inherently not sustainable.”
Harper’s Bazaar UK, March, 2020

“In terms of sustainable development, we are basically the leader. For Finland, this is a very natural thing. Other fashion weeks follow us, I never thought that this day will come. Some people say that we should protect our identity, but our purpose is to share and motivate. Sustainability is not your own, but we must work together and strive to achieve the right level of ethics.
It’s also about people, we have to be sustainable in the way we treat others and get the job done.” VOGUE CHINA, August 2, 2019

Mora, who founded Helsinki fashion week, said designers often asked her whether creativity is an obstacle to sustainability. For her, they are not mutually exclusive: “Innovation to me is no longer about travelling to the moon; it is about finding something new in the old.
It’s finding something new in the old’: how fashion can confront the climate crisis. – The Guardian  September 2019

“Fashion has an influence on the most remote corners of humanity and our planetary home. We don’t exist in a detached bubble, but, instead, we are all the very architects who together help weave the vast and colorful web that connects us all. And from what better position than ours to adopt a new mindset,” said Evelyn Mora

“I think the biggest challenges right now to a more sustainable future is a lack of action and greenwashing”, said Evelyn Mora, Consultant and founder of Helsinki Fashion Week, who also cites initial risk and investment as obstacles for greater action. Mora, in between speaking on panels anticipates the upcoming  Circular Fashion Summit in Paris, along with the publishing of her first book, “The Trouble Maker” next year which will detail her trail-blazing sustainability efforts. – She calls for deep dives into production processes to see what makes fashion truly green.” – WWD November 2019
