Council of Fashion Designers of America has tapped Loomstate’s Scott Mackinlay Hahn and jewelry designer Melissa Joy Manning as the co-chairs of its first-ever “sustainability committee.” The group, which will include a steering committee of CFDA members such as Maria Cornejo , Victoria Bartlett , Pamela Love , and Tina Lutz , will “foster and support sustainability measures in the fashion industry through mentorship, education and collaboration,” the not-for-profit trade association announced on Monday—aptly, Earth Day . These industry experts are not only committed to socially and environmentally restorative business practices, according to a press release, but they’ll also “lead the charge, with the aim of inspiring and empowering designers to take practical and prosperous steps toward sustainable design.”
