PARIS — LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton said it and roughly half of its luxury brands would adopt the “Women Empowerment Principles” described by a United Nations charter.
The French luxury giant and 30 brand chiefs signed the charter Wednesday as part of a talent development day in Paris assembling 150 high-potential employees.
The seven UN principles offer businesses guidance on how to promote gender equality and women's empowerment in the workplace. They include implementing supply chain and marketing practices that empower women; promoting education, training and professional development for women; and measuring and publicly reporting on progress made towards achieving gender equality.
Participating brands span all of LVMH’s business groups including Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Marc Jacobs, Emilio Pucci, Berluti, Christian Dior, Loewe, Givenchy, Kenzo and Thomas Pink in fashion and leather goods; Bulgari, Tag Heuer, Fred, Chaumet and Dior Montres in watches and jewelry; Parfums Christian Dior, Guerlain, Parfums Loewe, Acqua di Parma and Make Up For Ever in perfumes and cosmetics; Sephora, Le Bon Marché and DFS in selective retailing; and Krug, Moët & Chandon, Hennessy, Veuve Clicquot and Glenmorangie in wines and spirits.

“I am of tradition, but that doesn’t mean I have an old outlook on life,” Hubert de Givenchy told WWD in an interview in 1978. The legendary designer, who died last week at the age of 91, achieved wide success soon after launching his own couture boutique in the early ’50s, but he refused to pine for that time. For the first time since its original publication, read our interview with Givenchy on his awe for Audrey Hepburn and looking forward. Link in bio. #wwdarchives #fbf (📷: Pierre Schermann)
About last night: @alexachung and @supergausa toasted the launch of their capsule collection. “It’s the shape that I love, so rather than amend the last and make the sole crazy or do anything wild, we just did really subtle additions that I think make it look really luxe-y,” said Chung. #wwdfashion (📷: Marc Patrick)
