Five fashion companies join the Foundation’s Network as partners

Fashion brands and retailers Inditex, Lacoste, Primark, PVH Corp, and Ralph Lauren Corporation have joined the Foundation’s Network as Partners.

Inditex, Lacoste, Primark and PVH Corp have previously been Core Partners and Participants of the Foundation’s Make Fashion Circular initiative, with Primark and PVH Corp brand, Tommy Hilfiger, also part of the Foundation’s Jeans Redesign project.

The Foundation’s work on Fashion started back in 2017 and brought together leaders from across the fashion industry to work with cities, philanthropists, NGOs, and innovators to create a circular economy for clothes. Make Fashion Circular now enters its fourth year, and has made strides in redesigning the fashion industry, including establishing its vision and demonstrating that creating clothes for a circular economy is possible today through projects like The Jeans Redesign - where some of the biggest names in fashion have, to date, put more than half a million pairs of circular jeans on the market.

The Foundation and its fashion Partners, including strategic partner H&M Group, will be working to drive momentum towards the Make Fashion Circular vision where clothes, products (apparel, footwear, accessories) are used more, made to be made again, and made from safe and recycled or renewable inputs. As Partners of the world’s leading circular economy network, their collaborative efforts will be key to drive systemic change and scale solutions globally.


Inditex is one of the world’s largest fashion retail groups with eight distinct brands focused on a fit-to-customer-demand model in a sustainable way through a digitally integrated platform of stores and online.


Since the very first polo was created in 1933, Lacoste relies on its authentic sports heritage to spring optimism and elegance on the world thanks to a unique and original lifestyle for women, men and children. At the juncture of sport and fashion, Lacoste frees us up, creates movement in our lives, and liberates our self-expression. In every collection, in every line, Lacoste’s timeless elegance is captured through a combination of the creative and the classic. Since its beginnings, the crocodile’s aura has grown more powerful with every generation who has worn it, becoming a rallying sign beyond style. Passed from country to country, from one generation to the next, from one friend to another, Lacoste pieces become imbued with an emotional connection that raises them to the status of icons. The Lacoste elegance - both universal and timeless - brings together a large community, in which everyone respects and recognizes each other's values and differences.
