Italian luxury porcelain brand Ginori 1735 has announced a partnership with the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana (CNMI) for the CNMI Sustainable Fashion Awards 2023, to be held on September 24 in Milan at the conclusion of fashion week.
Ginori 1735 will embellish the tables at the gala dinner with the black and scarlet settings of the Catene (Chains) and Labirinto (Labyrinth) services, designed by Gio Ponti, who was artistic director at the company from 1923 to 1933.
The partnership was driven by the strong sense of sustainability that is a fundamental part of Ginori 1735's identity. The company is working to significantly reduce energy consumption in the production process, to recycle waste porcelain and to strongly limit the amount of heavy metals in decorations that may come into contact with food.
"We are proud to be at the side of CNMI on the occasion of The Sustainable Fashion Awards 2023 in order to promote the values of social, environmental, and economic responsibility while enhancing the greatest Italian savoir-faire in craft and art," said Ginori 1735 CEO Alain Prost.
The CNMI Sustainable Fashion Awards recognize individuals and companies that are demonstrating a strong commitment to sustainability in the fashion industry. The awards are presented in six categories: Brand of the Year, Innovative Material of the Year, Emerging Talent of the Year, Social Impact of the Year, Circular Economy of the Year, and Lifetime Achievement Award.
Ginori 1735's partnership with CNMI is a testament to the company's commitment to sustainability and its support for the fashion industry's efforts to reduce its environmental impact.
