Niels Eskildsen founded the Danish brand Designers Remix in 2002 together with his wife, Charlotte, its creative director. They began by redesigning used clothes and they already took a circular approach to fashion back then, one they still embrace.
Since 2013 Eskildsen has served as the chair of the board of Danish Fashion Institute, the parent company behind Copenhagen Fashion Summit and Global Fashion Agenda. As chair, he has played a key role in developing these two sustainable initiatives. Eskildsen also serves as chair of the board of Copenhagen Fashion Week, and on the board of Design Society, the organisation behind Danish Design Center, INDEX – Design to improve Life and Danish Fashion Institute. For years he was also a member of the business panel for the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts.
Eskildsen holds a MSc in economics from Aarhus University and lives in Copenhagen with his family.
