ECCO at Berlin Fashion Week

Innovation, technology and fashion were in focus when ECCO was invited to join this year’s Berlin Fashion Week in FashionTech, one of the world’s leading fashion and tech conferences.

Invited as special guest to High Snobiety, ECCO’s Head of Applied Research Thomas Gøgsig was interviewed by Editorial Director Brock Cardiner in front of a live audience – and on a stage right above the runway.

Thomas Gøgsig explains:

Dyneema Bonded Leather and Apparition are some of ECCO’s innovative products which have really made their entry in the fashion world. Our use of cutting-edge technology opens up a world of opportunities in fashion, and the audience was very open to learning more about ECCO as a company and our take on innovation”.

ECCO was present at the conference to discuss the hottest trends and disruptive technologies in the fashion industry. Although focus was on technology and innovation, the audience was also curious to know more about ECCO’s way of working with Corporate Responsibility. “For sure, ECCO has an edge which very few can replicate: our value chain and the flexibility to bring stuff from idea to product to bulk without any 3rd party involvement,” Thomas Gøgsig says.
