As the industry becomes increasingly more aware of fashion’s intersection with social justice and environmental issues, VFW continues to further this dialogue by supporting designers that address matters from gender identity, to ethics and sustainability. In celebration of their diverse cultures and lifestyles, this years designers surpass industry standards of presenting impressive runway collections by offering solutions to pertinent issues plaguing the industry, like fashions carbon footprint, while simultaneously prioritizing the preservation of the environment and its animal inhabitants.
This seasons program includes four fashion shows with designers hailing from various countries and nationalities, including South Koreas Vegan Tiger, France’s Julien Esteves Berthier, and for the first time Argentina will be represented by Buenos Aires-based Romina Cardillo and her brand Nous Etudions (Antispeciesist Brand, LVMH Prize Shortlists 2020).
