Manuel Fernández has been committed to Sustainable Development as a Designer and Artist for 40 years. He has been a pioneer -at an international level- in the implementation of the 3 dimensions of sustainability: economic, social and environmental. Faithful to this triple principle, his trajectory demonstrates that it is possible to promote the generation of wealth, while at the same time boosting the prosperity of people and fighting for respect for the environment.
His most disruptive contribution has been the materialization of FASHION ART 20 years ago; becoming the creator of the fusion of fashion and art and the inventor of a new language. FASHION ART is the communication channel that is raising awareness about sustainability values in a fast and forceful way to a citizenry that responds to social and environmental awareness by the hand of fashion and art. FASHION ART is the vehicle that will transmit to future generations the legacy of Manuel Fernandez, as well as that of other artists and leaders committed to sustainable development.
This innovative way of enriching the fashion industry through integration and its sensitizing effect, brings decades of experience in the commitment to responsible fashion and art. Experience that Manuel Fernandez has been able to bring to a very valuable maturity because it is able to attract citizens; putting in value multiple disciplines and cultures.
The evidence throughout his career positions Manuel Fernandez as one of the great “Ambassadors of the 2030 Agenda and its 17 SDGs” as he has shown to have the concern to spread social responsibility and the differential ability to convince citizens and professionals called to change habits in their way of living and working so that our world is sustainable.
