A festival of Italian creativity to celebrate the supply chains

From the 16th to the 26th of September 2016, Milan becomes the stage for the stories of the world-class supply chains that make Italian products unique. During the Fashion Week, creativity and expertise of the Italian manufacture will be shown to the world through seven spectacular installations in different streets and squares of the city. Each of them will be dedicated to one of the main sectors of Made in Italy: fabrics, textiles, jewellery, cosmetics, accessories, eyewear, glasses, leather goods will raise the public’s awareness about the creativity and know-how of Italian manufacturing, while celebrating the fashion industry through the womenswear (and in some cases, of menswear) runway shows.

Se non è sostenibile, non è lusso

Ci sono diversi modi per guardare alla questione della sostenibilità nel mondo del tessile e della moda. C’è il percorso intrapreso da associazioni come Sistema moda Italia o Camera della moda, alla ricerca di standard condivisi dalle aziende, in grado di dare certezze sulle regole e dunque di promuovere una corretta competizione nel mercato. Parallelamente, si sviluppa un approccio che parte dalle richieste di un consumatore oggi attento - soprattutto nell’alto di gamma - non solo al contenuto stilistico dei prodotti, ma anche al fatto che siano realizzati nel rispetto dell’ambiente e dei diritti di tutti. Qualunque sia il punto di partenza, chi affronta il problema con serietà lo fa avendo chiaro che si tratta di una questione complessa, che coinvolge diversi problematiche e diversi attori e che si può affrontare solo in un contesto di filiera. Di tutto questo si discuterà alla 48a edizione di Filo, in programma a Milano il 27 e 28 settembre 2017.

In order to avoid unfair competition for workers and European firms, European Parliament gave the green light to a new method of calculation related to anti-dumping duties, at whose basis there are ‘significant market distortions’. In this way, it should be overcome the dichotomy between market economy and non-market economy, referring mainly to China.
