Sustainable Fashion – Alcantara Dialogues


Re-think, Re-design, Re-new

A while back, I was asked by a friend to provide her with some questions for a panel she was moderating in Italy. It was part of Milan design week, in a section called Connect4Climate in partnership with Alcantara – a carbon neutral Italian company. There were a series of panels but the one I was interested in related to sustainable fashion.

It was a rather distinguished panel, which came up with some interesting ideas but it was still evident that there are many issues that people do not want to even contemplate discussing. Take a look for yourself:   

Franca Sozzani, Editor-in-Chief, Vogue Italia
Renzo Rosso, President of OTB and Founder, Only the Brave Foundation
Pietra Pistoletto, Fashion Designer and Artist
Martina Hauser, Head of the Environmental and Carbon Foot Print Task Force, Italian Ministry for the Environment, Land, and Sea
Giovanna Melandri, President, Maxxi Foundation
