NEW YORK — Italian Vogue’s Franca Sozzani on Thursday called upon other fashion executives to pledge their support for the United Nations-backed Fashion 4 Development initiative.
During a roundtable discussion in the morning and later at a press conference, Sozzani and other F4D leaders mapped out new commitments to the Every Woman Every Child program led by U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. Attendees were repeatedly urged to put African artisans and manufacturers to work. Launched in February, F4D aims to further the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals.
