Props to the Italian fashion industry for publicly acknowledging the importance of creating a sustainable, environmentally, and socially responsible fashion industry.
The Italian Fashion Sustainability Manifesto was presented during Milan Fashion Week with a grand artistic performance by Michelangelo Pistoletto. At the Piazza del Duomo, Milan, 800 art, design, and fashion students wearing colorful t-shirts, formed a single multicolored version of the Third Paradise, a symbol representing the passage to a new level of planetary civilization, created by the artist in 2005.
The manifesto is a sustainability program for making every part of the fashion industry more environmentally and socially sustainable: from production to distribution, marketing, communication and education.
Now its time for the American fashion industry to get on board. It seems to be falling behind the always forward thinking Italian fashion industry.
