MFFashion, the first and only European newspaper devoted to fashion and luxury, once again reported ITS through exclusive interviews with many of this year’s members of our International jury. MFFashion branches from Milano Finanza Fashion, among the leading financial newspapers in Italy. The interviewers, Federica Camurati, Flavio Marcelli, Margherita Malaguti, Alice Merli, Tiziana Molinu, Tommaso Palazzi, focused on documenting the zeitgeist of the fashion industry, facing the global covid pandemic and at the same time struggling to translate sustainability from a communication weapon to real actions aimed at saving our planet. The answers, given the interviewees, are particularly interesting in outlining what fashion insiders forecast, today, about such topics.
