July 2018 / Focus on Circular Economy
What are the Smart Talks? An invitation to share insights and best practices to build ever more smart creative fashion! This edition: focus on Circular Economy.
Circular Economy… everyone is talking about it, but what is it exactly? Just a passing trend or the first sign of tomorrow’s economic model? What are its challenges and objectives? What role does technological innovation play? How does it serve as a lever for new business models?
A collective awareness has activated bold and original initiatives that are more mindful of social and environmental values. Circular economy goes even further, proposing an ambitious approach for the fashion ecosystem.
This July, explore Circular Economy and its importance as a new business model. PVNY Smart talks introduce a new generation of innovation, values, and discuss ways of doing business for today’s contemporary conscious consumers. All PVNY Smart talks will surround innovations that are readily available in the marketplace.
