Founder and Creative Director of Osklen
Oskar Metsavaht is internationally renowned as one of the forerunners of the New Luxury concept that advocates conscious fashion and sustainable luxury. According to him, “a brand is identified as luxurious if it involves so-called noble values. These, however, imply social concern and the preservation of natural resources for the next generations.”
Oskar is also the founder and president of Instituto-E, which promotes sustainable human development and encourages socio-environmental practices through awareness, projects and network management.
