This moment in time that we are experiencing is converging towards the acceleration of changes in the fashion system and beyond. At a time when the textile-fashion system is being rebuilt, certain barriers have to be broken down in order to move faster and faster by imagining the future. This is why, at a time of such great transformation in textiles, the Galli Academy wants to promote this meeting to highlight how the theme of sustainability is part of a cultural change that is altering the order in which our values are held.
