After a successful launch edition in September 2019, “IMPACT – Act Now for Positive Fashion” returned to Who’s Next placed at the center of the event alongside 1,300 ready-to-wear, beauty and lifestyle brands as a hybrid event to be part of the change of fashion. A structure upon entry showcased the Sustainable Development Goals with the aim for attendees to pledge their mission for a fairer and better world.

Impact connected manufacturers, brands, designers and retailers through four areas of focused commitment: Slow is Beautiful, Made By, The Future is Now, and Old is the New Black. Impact highlighted positive initiatives and brought together key industry players to strengthen existing solutions and co-create new sustainable solutions to production, distribution and consumption in order to drive social and environmental change. The ‘Talks’ stage hosted 18 panels and 84 speakers mostly dedicated to these new challenges.
