Designers today must adapt their creations to a world that has become more environmentally volatile & geopolitically complex. Businesses are also recognizing that they must innovate in ways that prioritize sustainability to respond to consumers who now want to engage with companies that align with their own values. This year's Design Symposium will discuss the ways in which companies across diverse arenas such as fashion, furnishings, cosmetics, & business, are designing for sustainable innovation. Panelists will share their insights on how they have leveraged the circular economy & other emerging trends to reimagine a more sustainable & ethical design practice-while still retaining impeccable & luxurious style in their products & services.
