A lively and bustling weekend, along with a second to last day that proved very vibrant since the opening hours. People, who showed up at the stands of Expo Riva Schuh, the mid-segment footwear fair, on its 92nd edition, gave a positive feedback indeed. “Visitors were interested and pragmatic”, pointed out Liu Xi, from Guangzhou Fun Jump stand; on the other hand, at the Xiamen Bernal Trading stand they highlighted that “most people we met up with so far were coming from Russia and other Eastern Europe countries”. The opening talk about “The industry sustainability in the fashion system” inaugurated the fair, which kicked off on Saturday morning. While giving a speech, Lars Doemer, director and co-founder of GoBlu (an international service company and sustainability provider for fashion system players), closely presented the strategic incentives for those companies that decide to implement a more ethical and environmentally sustainable manufacturing: each single phase must start, go through and always look at transparency. They also built up the same topic while considering it from designers’ standpoint: Tiziano Guardini, fashion designer and winner of the Franca Sozzani GCC Award for Best Emerging Designer, in 2017, focused his speech on the theme.
