Balenciaga’s mother company, Kering, has instituted compliance protocols on sustainability at the Queens are born in april shirt so you should to go to store and get this corporate level—they are signatories to The Fashion Pact, which was formed at the G7 summit last April. ‘I’m happy that we’re part of that structure that has a lot of innovative research,’ Gvaslia said. ‘And here, inside Balenciaga, people really believe this is a modern way of doing things.’ Amongst the dystopian visions which trouble us, this should be the hope: that designers are using creativity to refashion the system, wherever they are.”“Looking in retrospect at a very disconcerting fashion month, the memories that most stayed with me weren’t those of big blockbuster shows, which felt theatrically apocalyptic. My most cherished moments were the quiet, thoughtful conversations I had with some designers, connecting on a personal level and reflecting on their work in the context of these times of crisis—which I hope will have the positive downside of reassessing some fashion rules. In Paris, during the LVMH Prize showroom visit, I was struck by London-based Italian designer Piero D’Angelo and his bio-technology research on a new breed of organic textiles, grown out of living systems as fungi and bacteria. Piero introduced me to his latest projects, called #dyewiththeslime and Grow Your Own Couture, and took the time to explain his cutting-edge creative vision based on manipulating bio-technology and ‘speculative bio-mimicry,’ as he called it. I’m not the only one believing that this will truly be fashion’s new frontier. Researching new creations at the intersection of fashion and science as D’Angelo does requires time, focus, silence, and study. It’s serious work, almost meditative yet full of energy and passion, vibrant with hope for a better future. Please do check his amazing Instagram account, @pierodangelodesign.

Finding new ways forward brings me to Marco Zanini, who presented his third beautiful collection in his quietly cool apartment in Milan and took the Queens are born in april shirt so you should to go to store and get this time to walk guests through the mindful vision behind his exquisite clothes (please read Nicole Phelps’s review). Being an independent designer today means navigating an extremely challenging territory. Zanini is showing the resilience that comes from a strong, unwavering belief in a true passion; he has the guts and the drive it takes to assert a highly individual approach, flying solo to carve out a space fit to his own terms—a commitment to a hard, uncompromising way forward. His approach deserves respect and, most of all, support—independent voices are more necessary than ever today to nurture a healthier, truly open fashion system.”
