LVMH, CFDA Partner on Six-Episode Video Series During Earth Week


LVMH and the Council of Fashion Designers of America have partnered on a video series of conversations surrounding sustainability relevant to fashion and luxury.

Titled “Voices of Impact,” the co-created series will launch on LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton and CFDA digital channels in its entirety on Tuesday during Earth Week (Monday through Friday). It will air on cfda.com and CFDA’s YouTube channel, as well as lvmh.com. The series aims to inspire positive action by spotlighting fashion and luxury leaders from many vantage points.

The series is the latest example of LVMH’s commitment to advancing environmental standards in the fashion and luxury industry. In line with the Group’s Life 360 program, which has set sustainable development targets for all LVMH Maisons for 2023, 2026 and 2030, the series tackles such key issues as biodiversity, social and environmental innovation, circularity, regeneration, purpose-centered values and design, and climate action. Each session will highlight perspectives of leaders who herald change including ESG stewards, brand executives, independent founders, design practitioners, social innovators and educators.
