If the spring/summer 2024 collections – unveiled during the New York, London, Milan and Paris fashion weeks this month – are anything to go by, sustainability and cultural diversity are as important as looks and style in the world of fashion today.
And it’s not just on the catwalk.
The focus of this year’s Global Fashion Summit, held in the US city of Boston this week, was on the industry’s commitment to sustainability. A two-day international conference on sustainable fashion, to be held in Hong Kong from October 11-12, will bring together leaders in the field around the region to share ideas and discuss trends, technology, best practices and solutions.
