Attending a recent fashion event in New York, USA, Lydia Abela highlighted the importance of sustainable and environmental awareness being at the centre of the fashion industry.
Attending the event whilst her husband, Prime Minister of Malta Robert Abela, fulfils his duties at the 77th United Nations’ General Assembly, Lydia Abela took the opportunity to speak about how the future of fashion lies in sustainable creativity.
Posting a statement on social media, Abela said that she wanted to focus on two very specific and important themes during her address: the social and the environmental.
‘In the social sector, we need to continue working in a global context to improve the conditions of work, especially in the fashion industry itself.’
‘From the environmental aspect, we need to intensify our work to raise more awareness in our kids and the future generations about the importance of the environment of not just today, but of our future.
