From Wednesday, August 8 through Friday August 10, Denmark will host some of the most groundbreaking names in fashion the spring summer 2019 iteration of the Copenhagen International Fashion Fair (CIFF). Among those orchestrating this year's festivities are supermodel Naomi Campbell, art director Peter Saville, photographer Nick Knight, and Virgil Abloh, the designer behind Off-White and Louis Vuitton's latest men's collection.

Campbell, Saville, Knight, and Abloh have created one-of-a-kind projects to be unveiled at the CIFF as part of an installation called "Enlightenment." Business of Fashion notes that each of the works are inspired by light in hopes of raising awareness for solar power nonprofit Little Sun Foundation. Abloh is said to have created a limited-edition product for the cause, while Knight will unveil a short film during the event. Campbell and Saville have collaborated on ten original artworks featuring Woolrich blankets emblazoned with a selection of Campbell's favorite inspirational quotes.

“Our actions have to become a platform to raise awareness and do something good," Stavros Karelis, the curator of the installation, told BoF, “so we reached out to close collaborators like Virgil and Nick, who all came up with brilliant ideas of how they can work with the concept and the meaning of light.”

We can't wait to catch a glimpse of the final products this Wednesday — via Instagram, of course.
