Responsible innovation, ethical values, inclusion, diversity, are themes that are already part of the soft and hard skills of fashion professionals. How do you think they will influence the near future?

I am very pleased to see how the theme that I most care about professionally, sustainability, is emerging in the fashion world becoming more and more important. Some professional figures are emerging specifically in the world of sustainability and, at the same time, sustainability has become a transversal competence that is increasingly necessary in the fashion world. The future manager of fashion cannot fail to know what sustainability is, cannot fail to know what it means to be sustainable in the fashion world, just like a designer cannot . As far as I am concerned, in fashion it is increasingly powerful and important to think about what to do next: designing sustainable products, supply chains and companies will then allow them to be developed in the right way.
