Federico Pignatelli della Leonessa Welcomes Greta Thunberg
to New York
"We can no longer ignore the fact that our planet is in a state of crisis - the fashion industry is a powerful force. Designers and models are powerful influencers and can contribute to changes. We have strength in numbers. And we as a whole industry are stepping up to make a difference. I compliment Ms. Thunberg's bravery and intelligence. She needs to know that we, at Art&Fashion Group, PIER59 STUDIOS and The INDUSTRY Model Mgmt, all stand behind her."
