Event description

Description

Sustainability is a driving force that impacts the market and the development structure of sustaining and manufacturing. The panel discussion will talk about the importance of integrating sustainability in brands and the new wave of social justice and ethical approaches companies are taking. The panel will also talk about how to be more conscious when building your own brand and the tools that could be used to be more eco-friendly.


Matthew Williams

Matthew Williams is the founder of 1017 ALYX 9SM, one of the more recent brands to debut at Paris Fashion Week, and one whose enormous hype is totally justified.

Williams was born in Chicago, raised in Pismo Beach, California, and now lives in Ferrara, Italy (where ALYX’s production takes place). His aesthetic captures the zeitgeist, with 1017 ALYX 9SM referencing security through Matthew Williams’ design innovations and treading a line between luxe streetwear, high fashion, and fetish-esque leatherwear with aplomb.
