It is now clear: high fashion is increasingly aiming at a change of course towards investments and research of solutions that can combine luxury, quality and respect for the environment.
The importance of this new awareness of the world of fashion has led one of the most glamorous cities in the world, Venice, to be the background of the first international summit completely focused on sustainable high fashion.
The meeting will be titled “Venice Sustainable Fashion Forum 2022” and will be held in the Lagoon on 27 and 28 October next.
Venice Sustainable Fashion Forum 2022: the themes of the summit
The awaited meeting, which will cover the whole new world of sustainable luxury fashion, will be divided into two distinct sections.
The two main moments will be Just Fashion Transition “(created by Confindustria Venezia Metropolitan Area of Venice and Rovigo and The European House-Ambrosetti, with the patronage of Assocalzaturifici) and” The Values of Fashion “(created by the National Chamber of Italian Fashion and Sistema Moda Italia).
The main purpose of this “two days” is to understand how much and how high fashion has an impact on the planet.
In fact, fashion shows are only the last step in one of the most polluting production chains of all, what is missing today, however, is a planned and systematic study of these data.
The first edition of the Venice Sustainable Fashion Forum wants to pave the way for this: to transform itself into an annual meeting that can present reliable estimates.
Not only that: the other goal to which the Venice summit aims is to become a real point of reference and space for comparison between all the players in the high fashion sector: from fashion houses to producers of fabrics and raw materials, from local realities to the operators up to the artisans who with their manual skills bring back to life the true essence of tailoring.
