Designers Nest

Designers’ Nest is a non-profit initiative that supports fashion talents from the Nordic countries in their early stages after graduation. It features graduate designers who show high levels of originality, creativity, craftsmanship and responsible design.

Each year 10 finalists are selected to present their graduate work at a joint fashion show at Copenhagen Fashion Week. Awarded designers receive mentorships, internships and support to produce a commercial collection. In partnership with a museum, an Exhibition Prize is awarded to select designers that will be featured in an exhibition. Designers are selected by director Ane Lynge-Jorlén and a panel of industry experts.
