On Sunday, September 24, 2017, at “The Green Carpet Fashion Awards”, in Piazza della Scala, “Italy put a spotlight on the people behind the scenes in the fashion industry, celebrating the talent of artisan mills and Italian innovation. Chopard has been working for many years on supporting and protecting the people in their supply chains – which made them a perfect partner to produce the awards (from Fairmined gold of course!)”. These are the words of Livia Firth, Founder and Creative Director, Eco-Age.
“These awards are closely aligned with the values at Chopard, especially with the Journey to Sustainable Luxury and the celebration of the artisans involved in all levels of our supply chains. It was only right that the statuette should reflect the values at the heart of the event.”
During this event TARONI received the “Sustainable Producer” award, for the eco-sustainability criteria with which his fabrics are made, by the famous model Amber Valletta.
Taroni is the first and only textile manufacturer to have received this award for the first Oscar of Fashion.
