Anna Wintour: All bow to the Queen of Fashion
With her chunky neck pieces, trademark pageboy bob haircut, dark sunglasses covering much of her face and a reputation that precedes any face-to-face encounter, Dame Anna Wintour, DBE, editor-in-chief of Vogue since 1988 and artistic director for Condé Nast, is arguably the most visible and vocal personality in the fashion world, widely praised for her eye for fashion trends and her support for younger designers.
At Vogue Greece’s conference, Change Makers, Anna Wintour referenced the past and drew allusions to the present political climate. Craft and creativity, sustainability and conviction of belief are the three pillars for fashion designers and change makers to build their brands on, and for consumers make their buying decisions on. She stressed on sustainability to create change that really lasts, to think less of one-off fleeting instagram images, but instead to reflect on our values and to be the strongest version of ourselves. “This is the time to engage, precisely because everything is so uncertain. You need to listen as openly and to as many views as you can.”
