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.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
