Designers today must adapt their creations to a world that has become more environmentally volatile and 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, and business, are designing for sustainable innovation. Panelists will share their insights on how they have leveraged the circular economy and other emerging trends to reimagine a more sustainable and ethical design practice—while still retaining impeccable and luxurious style in their products and services.
