Co-hosted by the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton and The Countess of Wessex, Sophie, the event showcased talent and art from 53 countries!

According to the founder and creative director of Eco-Age, Livia Firth, “This is a project rich in partnerships and creative co-design. For example, one of our very talented designers from India is paired with an artisan group in Tuvalu. As someone who is passionate about joining the threads of global fashion and creating real partnerships you can imagine how exciting it is for us to be involved.”
