Last week Kresse was in Madrid, to help launch a book we contributed a chapter for and also, unexpectedly, to receive the IE Award for Sustainability in Luxury. Here she is, among other winners, including Loewe, Soneva and the Danish Fashion Institute. Alexandra Cousteau presented the awards and was a big part of the whole week. Meeting the jury, IE staff, former winners and other Sustainable Luxury Pioneers definitely made us feel that this is a movement going from strength to strength. The venue for the awards was ideal - with recycled cardboard instead of steel as support beams - it was our first introduction to the work of Japanese architect Shigeru Ban.
