The “Fashion Deserves the World" initiative is part of a program undertaken by the Italian Fashion Chamber (CNMI) in 2018 aimed at promoting inclusiveness and the enhancement of diversity within fashion.

In 2019, CNMI, through the contribution of the "HR & Education" working table in which all the major players in the Italian fashion industry participate, presented the CNMI Inclusion and Diversity Manifesto, which indicates a path for transforming company policies in order to make them inclusive, starting with the concepts of ethnicity, gender, sexual and religious orientation, age, mental and physical abilities, as well as socio-economic conditions.



 

"Fashion Deserves The World," first launched on June 20, 2021, on World Refugee Day and developed in collaboration with the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and Mygrants, was created with the aim of providing 15 young migrants and refugees with the opportunity to embark on a career path within the fashion and luxury industry and to access a range of technical training services in various areas of the fashion industry free of charge.





Aeffe, Fendi, Gucci, Maison Valentino, Moncler Group and Zegna responded to CNMI's recall by joining the first edition of the project.





 

For its second edition taking place in 2023, the project will focus on craftsmanship and Made in Italy and will provide participants with the skills needed to fill in fashion companies, roles particularly in demand by companies, such as tailor, pattern maker and embroiderer.




 

From among those who respond to the call for participation, CNMI will select 15 finalists who in March/April 2023 will have the opportunity to participate in a series of training sessions, to explore topics ranging from knowledge of materials and production techniques to hands-on workshops.

As it happened in the first edition, once the training process is over, CNMI, UNHCR and Mygrants will support the 15 profiles in the placement process, signaling their profiles to the Italian member companies of Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, which based on their needs and the specific profiles of the candidates will evaluate a possible placement in their workforce through internships or employment contracts.
