Millions of women had one goal Tuesday: To crack the country's highest glass ceiling once and for all. The outcome of the elections is -and will be- affecting us women in different ways. We think it is a good time to come together and discuss, reflect and project. Being in the fashion industry, one of the largest and most competitive market spaces, we have both brains and beauty.
Quote from 'WWD': “We need to focus on bringing the country back together. There’s simply too much at stake. The fashion industry is one of the largest polluters in the world. We know we need to collaborate. After all, if we don’t take care of the environment now, there will be no environment to work in.”
