Winter Is Coming

On October 19th, 2019, CODO hosted its annual Fall/Winter collection fashion show. This year’s collection, called “Winter is Coming”, was all about fighting back against the fast fashion industry that destroys our environment and regularly violates human rights. Featuring vintage coats and garments refashioned with pre-existing luxurious materials, CODO showed its audience an alternative and eco-friendly definition of “brand new” fashion. The event was designed to raise awareness to the perils of fast fashion, and show fashion consumers what steps they can take to slow down fast fashion. By increasing the lifespan of their existing fashion, investing in high quality fashion that will last a lifetime and buying pre-owned, consumers can slow the demand that fuels the fast fashion industry.

The runway show gained its inspiration from the award-winning HBO series Game of Thrones, drawing symbolism from Khaleesi and “breaking the chains” that fast fashion polluters have put us in. The runway was littered with snowflakes and plastic bottles, drawing parallels to the inevitable consequences that will ensue as fast fashion, and its landfill waste byproduct, continue to grow. CODO’s models walked confidently down the runway, feeling beautiful and powerful while knowing their fashion choices are environmentally conscious. As they made their return off the runway, they picked up plastic bottles and placed them in reusable canvas shopping bags marked with the CODO sustainable logo. The show was made up of 9 episodes; each outfit draws unique symbolism from its corresponding Game of Thrones episode. If you've seen the award winning TV series, try and see your favorite parts in each outfit!
