On 27 and 28 October, the Venice (Cini Foundation, Island of San Giorgio) will host the 𝟭𝘀𝘁 𝗩𝗲𝗻𝗶𝗰𝗲 𝗦𝘂𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗶𝗻𝗮𝗯𝗹𝗲 𝗙𝗮𝘀𝗵𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗙𝗼𝗿𝘂𝗺, an event that we have chosen to sponsor in line with our commitment to the sustainable transition of the fashion industry to a circular economy.
The Forum will take place over two days: the day of 27 October entitled “Just Fashion Transition” organised by Confindustria Venezia Area Metropolitana di Venezia e Rovigo and The European House – Ambrosetti, with the patronage of Assocalzaturifici, and the day of 28 October entitled “The Values of Fashion” organised by Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana and Sistema Moda Italia (SMI).
The Forum aims to become the annual reference event focused on sustainability in the Fashion sector, with focus, debates, and presentation of useful data to understand the present and future of a key supply chain for sustainable transition.
The Italian fashion industry represents a turnover of about 100 billion, employs over 500,000 people in more than 60,000 companies. Italy, a leader in the world’s high quality fashion industry, has a duty to be at the centre of the international debate on sustainability in fashion.
From this awareness and from the desire to work together towards a concrete objective of sustainable transition comes the Venice Sustainable Fashion Forum, the first event that brings together the companies of the ‘Fashion’ supply chain to identify the priority challenges, to indicate a shared path of change, and to initiate a feasible path of transformation based on scientific and measurable evidence.
