Walk of Life’s Shannon Houde has been selected as event planner and MC for Kering’s annual sustainability conference with over 100 attendees from their 20 brands this October in Paris. Kering’s imaginative and forward thinking business model is leading fashion into a new era of impact through launching the first EP&L to promoting animal rights and sustainable sourcing of raw materials.
A global Luxury group, Kering manages the development of a series of renowned Maisons in Fashion, Leather Goods, Jewelry and Watchmaking: Gucci, Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta, Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen, Brioni, Boucheron, Pomellato, Dodo, Qeelin, Ulysse Nardin, Girard-Perregaux, as well as Kering Eyewear.
Kering enables its Maisons to set new limits in terms of their creative expression while crafting tomorrow’s Luxury in a sustainable and responsible way. They capture these beliefs in their signature: “Empowering Imagination.”
