The Event

A fashion night dedicated to Sustainability and Swissness in the fashion sector. 

Sustainability is not a trend, but an emerging awareness and a long-term way of looking at style. Important movements stay for changes in the industry, believing in a fashion industry that values people, the environment, creativity and profit in equal measure.

Switzerland has the world’s most innovative economy and an excellent positioning in the field of sustainability. We want to leverage this pole position in the context of the Fashion-Hotspot Milano through the presence of leading Switzerland based Companies, Designers and Institutions.
