Paris Fashion Week’s organizer FHCM from the PwC consultancy has launched a new platform to enable companies simulate and confidentially record environmentally-sensitive decisions for the Fashion Week’s events. As per Business of Fashion, the tool aims to provide a comprehensive view of a fashion show and the impact of the designer collection on climate and the environment, including from transportation, servers for video streaming, materials, or set design.
While individual brands’ results will remain private, FHCM will use the system to report aggregated information on Paris Fashion Week’s environmental impact going forward. Having around 100 members, the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode brings together fashion brands that foster creation and international development. It seeks to promote French fashion culture, where Haute Couture and creation have a major impact by combining traditional know how and contemporary technology at all times. It contributes to bolstering Paris in its role as worldwide fashion capital in particular coordinating Paris Fashion Week.
