Resta però il fatto che con l’annullamento della 53a edizione di Filo, le aziende espositrici hanno perso la possibilità di mostrare ai buyer internazionali e nazionali le loro collezioni nei due giorni di fiera.

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.
