#VOCKSDiary – Laax Vintage Days 2019

Laax Vintage Days Suzanna Vock Curator

Sustainable Fashion In An Impressive Mountain Setting

The first edition of Laax Vintage Days is over. I was very happy to curate this fashion event. I got to know inspiring people whose labels are committed to greater sustainability in the fashion industry. Here you can find my impressions of this event. Laax Vintage Days were made possible by LAAX and the Greenstyle Foundation, thank you very much!

Day of arrival to Laax in Canton Grisons

Relaxed arrival by train to LAAX. The first step was to sort out the clothes and define the appropriate prices. The clothes will be sold at the Greenstyle Foundation’s market stall. 50% of the revenue go to the Foundation and will be used for projects that promote environmental education and research, protect the climate and reduce the negative effects of climate change.

Saturday, the first day of the LAAX Vintage Days

Saturday, the first day of the LAAX Vintage Days. There is a lively and happy atmosphere at the market place at the rocksresort. Rafael Kouto gives a talk about upcycling. The brothers Leander and Gilles Goetsch show their documentary film “Alternativen”. In the evening there was a roller skate disco in the Riders Club. A day with many great encounters and exciting conversations.

Sunday at the Laax Vintage Days

Sunday morning the alarm clock rings. After an extensive breakfast in the hotel we started the Vintage Days. Some are already doing yoga with lola studio, others are having coffee, still a bit tired from yesterday’s Roller Disco. The last panel is about the Brand I Love Syria. It was initiated by Rania Kinge to give women from the war region a perspective in their own country. I was very impressed by the story of Rania, a strong woman who is committed to her home country and to the people who put women in the foreground. 
I go home tired but very happy and satisfied. Many thanks to the team of Laax Vintage Days, to all exhibitors and guests who were at this great event.
