MILAN — “Preserving the supply chain [is essential] because it’s unmatched in the world. The Italian industry has considered fashion as a gemstone, but not so relevant on the industrial side,” said Claudio Marenzi, the outgoing president of fashion and textile trade association Sistema Moda Italia, introducing the “Fashion and Luxury Industry Outlook” summit, held here on Tuesday at the Unicredit tower venue.
The summit shared some insights gleaned from the global fashion supply chain design advisory board conducted by consulting agency The European House — Ambrosetti along with Lectra Italia, the Italian division of the France-based product lifecycle management and cutting machinery company and supported by Unicredit bank and Sistema Moda Italia.
Super-influencer @chiaraferragni doesn't miss a beat— or a party. Last night, she inaugurated Pomellato's newest boutique on Rodeo Drive, decked out in bling from the jewelry brand. At the event, Ferragni took some time to sit down with us to discuss motherhood, being a newlywed, and the hotly-anticipated documentary she is currently filming.

As the conversation around sustainability only grows stronger in fashion circles, Everlane has made a new declaration: it’s saying goodbye to virgin plastic. The company, whose ethos is all about “radical transparency,” in terms of pricing and ethical factories, plans to be completely free of virgin plastics by 2021. “We’re producing millions of units and every unit that goes out is wrapped in plastic,” said founder and CEO, Michael Preysman. “At the beginning, it was like, ‘Hey, let’s just take off all these plastic bags.’ There are a lot of complications to that. Everything you buy in the world comes wrapped in plastic when it comes out of the factory.”
