Luxury goods tycoon Kering and London College of Fashion (LCF) are introducing a six-week course titled “Fashion and Sustainability: Understanding Luxury Fashion in a Changing World,” addressing the sustainability challenges facing the fashion industry. The course covers six key modules including six key modules, covering both the theoretical aspects of sustainability as well as real-life business cases that luxury brands face, such as raw material sourcing, animal welfare and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Marie-Claire Daveu, chief sustainability officer and head of international institutional affairs at Kering said, “There are many challenges in the industry, but in luxury, we have a specific responsibility because we are influencing trends,” Daveu continues. “People need to realise that sustainability is an opportunity, not a constraint. It’s a chance to be optimistic, because you can make wonderful products while taking care of people and the planet. The solution does exist.”
