The third chapter in her book is around innovation and why R&D has become the core of successful fashion and luxury businesses.

Scientists globally are urgently trying to develop a vaccine. We now see that agility is there and innovation is possible.

Will the fashion industry take this as an example of what can happen if we collectively work together especially when it comes to sustainability.
