'TRANSFORMATION NEEDS COLLABORATION. WE BUILD STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS TO DRIVE SYSTEMATIC CHANGE.'
Collaboration and exchange are key for building a responsible business and creating a positive impact. That is why we are members of several initiatives that seek to make the fashion industry fairer and more sustainable for the planet. We have partnered with ambitious companies and organizations that help us to establish responsible business practices. These partnerships mean a lot to us: we learn, we get inspired, we exchange.
