A new green step for Dolce&Gabbana. The company has founded, together with five other luxury brands in the fashion industry, the Re.Crea Consortium.
The project, coordinated by Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, aims to manage end-of-life textiles, fashion products and promote the research and development of innovative recycling solutions.
The Consortium intends to respond in a timely manner to the European directive on ‘Extended Producer Responsibility for Textile Waste (EPR)’ and the implementation of such legislation nationally, which is currently being developed and coordinated by the Ministry of Ecological Transition.
The Consortium is also evaluating partnerships with Italian experts in the fields of production, research and development as well as with international academic institutions specialised in sustainability and innovation research. Such as, DTech Lab, an innovation centre at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, ‘Silklab’, an interdisciplinary research laboratory at Tufts University in Boston and the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence in Boston.
