“Being responsible means being practical. A fashion product has to be gorgeous [in order to be sold], it has to be beautiful; it has to be within a certain margin or price, and so on. This is the bottom line. But then there is a new bottom line which is also responsible; responsible with a positive story which is how the value is built in the whole value chain.”

—Simone Cipriani, head of the International Trade Centre’s Ethical Fashion Programme, speaking to British Vogue.
