Helsinki Fashion Week and Kodasema announce partnership to inhabit the EcoVillage
Helsinki, Finland, July 06, 2018 – Helsinki Fashion Week has announced partnership with mobility- house innovator Kodasema, to emphasise on the changing city landscape of the future while materialising the predictions by inhabiting the EcoVillage, during Helsinki Fashion Week, 20–25 July in Säiliö 468.
As the world is transforming along with cultural trends, city development and shifting value proposition, housing and living are rising to the center stage of these changes when space becomes increasingly stronger indicator of wealth in the modern society.
To personally experience the opportunities and effects of the growing trend of mobility housing, Helsinki Fashion Week Founder Evelyn Mora will be inhabiting the EcoVillage in Kodasema’s KODA house during the fashion week, as part of the EcoVillage reporting initiative.
The collaborative investigates life in the EcoVillage as a future oriented hands-on experience, seeking to understand the possibilities of circular living and lifestyle. In addition to the project titled HUM4N EXPERIENCE, the KODA will function as a gathering place for Helsinki Fashion Week lectures, workshops and interviews. This way the partnership allows to illustrate the possibilities of circular and community-focused mobility living in a way that would not otherwise be possible, as it is the ultimate test and proof of concept on a larger scale.
