CREATING THE BEST SUPPLY CHAIN IN LUXURY
Innovating in collaboration with suppliers, Versace co-creates a Code of Conduct written by hundreds of participants
A unique and innovative initiative in fashion: a Code of Conduct written by hundreds of participants. A distinctive approach that reflects Versace’s will to go beyond an administrative step. A new way of working, collaborating, and growing together with partners.
Every choice Versace makes doesn’t stop at the doors of the Maison – decisions involve all suppliers and collaborators throughout the process of creating our collections: from the choice of materials for ready-to-wear and accessories, to the printing and embroidery techniques to packaging. Adopting a sustainable approach contributes to the fairness, collaboration and trust-based relationships Versace has always shared with all partners. Relationships which will continue to be the base for future sustainable growth.
Hundreds of Versace partners convened for a multi-day workshop. The varying perspectives of all participating entities were gathered with the scope of providing rich contribution that reflects the view of each company, while respecting their unique nature.
The final document reflects the sustainability principles rooted at the heart of the company mission — principles to be taken into account throughout our supply chain. Common values that emerged from the collaboration: respect, human touch, interdependence, concreteness, and transparency.
For Versace, this is only the first step in a long path together toward a future-fit business model in creating the best supply chain in luxury.
