Featuring leaders in conscious fashion and luxury, the curated video series launches on LVMH and CFDA digital channels in honor of Earth Week.

 LVMH and the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) partnered on a video series of highly-curated conversations designed to highlight today’s leading voices on topics of sustainability relevant to fashion and luxury.

Titled “VOICES OF IMPACT” the co-created series aims to inspire positive action by shining a spotlight on creative ingenuity while engaging conscious fashion and luxury leaders from multi-dimensional vantage points.

The series is the latest example of LVMH’s commitment to advancing environmental standards in the fashion and luxury industry. In line with the Group’s LIFE 360 program, which has set sustainable development targets for all LVMH Maisons for 2023, 2026, and 2030, the series touches on key issues such as biodiversity, social and environmental innovation, circularity, regeneration, purpose-centered values and design, and climate action. Each session will bring together perspectives of leaders who herald change including ESG stewards, brand executives, independent founders, design practitioners, social innovators, and educators.
