The campaign is dedicated to driving change through advocacy, education and engagement of industry stakeholders to create a sustainable future for all.

On February 5th, 2020, the Sustainable Development Goals will be introduced for the first time at Fashinnovation’s 4th NYFW summit.

After being joined by sector leaders such as Carry Somers: Co-Founder of Fashion Revolution, Susan Rockefeller, UN Global Compact & others, we want to put an even stronger focus and make sustainability the core of our summits. We couldn’t think of a better way than partnering with the Conscious Fashion Campaign to implement responsible marketing, operations and logistics that are mindful of social, economic and environmental impact – can’t wait for what’s ahead” says Jordana and Marcelo Guimaraes, Founders of Fashinnovation.
