Oslo Runway is the platform for showcasing Norway’s most exciting design talents and brands. The event is a meeting place for the creative industry and a front-row view of the intersection between fashion, lifestyle, art, and culture.
Our purpose is to strengthen the positioning of Norwegian designers and brands locally, as well as in targeted international markets, through joint communicative efforts to promote and sell Norwegian aesthetics combined with ethics.
“Sustainability is a core focus area for Oslo Runway. As a national display platform, we have a commitment to contribute and shape new mindsets and practices for a more sustainable industry.”
CEO, Elin Carlsen
In 2021, Oslo Runway, Norwegian Fashion Hub and Copenhagen Fashion Week joined forces to implement CPHFW's 2023 Sustainability Requirements in the Norwegian fashion and lifestyle industry. From 2023, we will introduce sustainability criteria for all brands that want to participate at Oslo Runway. In addition, we will introduce a separate set of criteria that runs on the event.
Oslo Runway was established in 2015 and is partly owned by Norwegian Fashion Hub, the association for over 60 Norwegian fashion and lifestyle brands, Active Brands, Ditte Kristensen, Ida J. Lamond, Katrine Kvalsund and Kristina A. Nordbæk from the PR and communication agency This Is.
