The Council of Fashion Designers of America, Inc. (CFDA) recognised Vegea as one of the best innovations of 2017.
During the meeting that took place in New York on 13 October 2017, Gianpiero Tessitore, Owner of Vegea, discussed about Vegeatextile ® technology in front of an expert panel of talented designers and fashion entrepreneurs. “A circular economy is restorative and regenerative by design, and aims to keep products, components and materials at their highest utility and value at all times. Waste as we know It does not exist as It is used as a resource or an input for something else.
Fashion industry needs to reinvent Itself and our innovative technologies and biobased materials can make It possible. By transforming to a circular model, the fashion industry will be able to produce fashion for a growing world population while operating within the planetary boundaries and ensuring a long term viable business” said Tessitore.
The Council of Fashion Designers of America is a not-for-profit trade association whose membership consists of more than 500 of America’s foremost womenswear, menswear, jewelry and accessory designers. The CFDA foundation, Inc. is a separate not-for-profit organization, which was created to raise funds for charity and industry activities.
