Discover the Best Sustainable Brands with LVRSustainable

What started as a humble family-owned boutique in Florence in the early 1900s has grown into an expansive luxury e-retailer well known in the fashion world: LuisaViaRoma. While the company has always cared about its customers and been involved in charity, in late 2019 it went a step further by creating its LVRSustainable section that is a must-see for any fashion lovers looking to inject some sustainability into their wardrobes!

Luxury leader LuisaViaRoma recognised that sustainable and ethical fashion was a cause well worth getting onboard with as consumers became more conscious of the impact of their shopping habits. But they weren’t just jumping on a trend—according to Maria Fernanda Hernandez, head of sustainability and global communications, the movement inspired them to “make a change and find initiatives that foster social responsibility and sensitisation about the environmental and social difficulties we are facing”.

 

LVRSustainable was born out of a need for a shift in the fashion industry that prioritises the protection of people, the planet, and animals. LuisaViaRoma knows they have a responsibility to embody these ever important principles in light of their impressive ~35 million visitors per year from all around the globe, and this new collection helps them do just that.
