Condé Nast International will host its annual Luxury Conference in 2019 in Cape Town, South Africa, it was announced by Suzy Menkes, International Vogue Editor and curator of this annual event. ‘The Nature of Luxury’ will be the fifth Condé Nast International event of its kind, with ‘The Language of Luxury’ Conference taking place in Lisbon in April 2018. Suzy Menkes commented: “‘The Nature of Luxury’ shows Condé Nast International, once again, as the absolute leader in global seminars for the luxury and fashion industry. Taking the annual Luxury Conference to South Africa is not only a bold gesture but also a statement of support of the entire continent’s current growth. Its subject also embraces a changing perception of what luxury stands for: craft, handwork, nature and nurture in an ever-changing landscape. I hope that our attendees will enjoy discovering the nature of luxury with me, and the importance of this industry to Africa.” 'The Nature of Luxury’ Conference will take place in Cape Town, South Africa on the 10th and 11th April 2019. Further details will be announced in due course on www.CNILuxury.com.

Kering White Ribbon Campaign 2017

Read more

The Kering Foundation launches the sixth edition of the Kering White Ribbon Campaign for 2017, running from from 20th November up until until 25th November, the International Elimination of Violence Against Women's Day. The campaign specifically targets Gen Z in order to provoke a deep and sustainable change in mentalities, behaviours and cultures across the globe. The foundation calls on the general public to imagine their lives as “Her”: the one in three girls and women who are victims of violence. Although, one cannot understand what experience without having lived through violence oneself, I Could Have Been aims to draw attention to the higher risk of violence girls and women face - simply for being born female. For this year’s campaign, the official ambassadors – Alessandro Michele, Christopher Kane, Joseph Altuzarra and Dennis Chan - kick start the action by unveiling the names their parents would have given them if they were born as girls. Likewise, Kering Foundation board directors Stella McCartney and Salma Hayek Pinault will call on all girls and women to join them in becoming “Her”.
