"Everything began back in June, during Paris Haute Couture Week. I met Anna for coffee and we started talking about sustainability, about the future of fashion and about how important diversity and inclusion are in all industries, but particularly in ours, which is so visible and so capable of sending powerful messages. We discussed those amazing Greek women who inspire us every day with their career paths and their passions. Most importantly, we discussed the role of Vogue, an iconic brand which is always the leader, as we go forward."
“Change Makers,” the first-ever Vogue Greece event, featured Anna Wintour as its guest of honor and took place on November 27th, 2019, at the Athens Concert Hall, attracting an audience of more than 2,000 readers, fashion-industry professionals, designers, and fashion students, as well as international media coverage by outlets including Reuters, Business Insider, and Euronews. High-profile international speakers, including Dana Thomas and Cara Smyth, as well as designers and entrepreneurs representing prominent Greek fashion and jewelry brands offered their insights into timely topics such as Sustainability, Inclusivity, Female Empowerment, and the Role of Vogue in the Future of Fashion, in a conference that informed and inspired all those who attended. In light of the success of the first “Change Makers” event, the conference will be repeated highlighting more hot topics that set the agenda of the world of fashion.
"I don't think it's a moment not to take a stand ... I believe, as I think those of us who work at Condé Nast believe, that you have to stand up for what you believe in and you have to take a point of view"

"Who, then, is afraid of the future? The one who is afraid of change. And change is now imperative. Let’s change the way we consume, act and think. Let’s finally care for the environment and our planet. After all, this is our home."
