Copenhagen Fashion Summit has announced four new high-level names who will take part in the panel debate 'Supply chain transparency' at this year's summit. Moderated by Simone Cipriani, this debate will discuss the hot topic of publishing supplier lists, along with issues surrounding human rights, including child labour, working hours and forced labour.

The new speakers announced by the Summit include Simone Cipriani, head and founder, Ethical Fashion Initiative at the International Trade Centre; François Zimeray, Ambassador of France to Denmark; Baroness Lola Young and Paul van Zyl co-founder and CEO of Maiyet.

Through the Ethical Fashion Initiative, Cipriani has made it his mission to build a more responsible and sustainable fashion industry. The Ethical Fashion Initiative harnesses the power of fashion as a vehicle out of poverty by connecting artisans in the developing world to fashion's supply chain. Since its inception, the initiative has evolved to work with emerging African designers to promote their talent at an international level and to support Made in Africa production.

Zimeray, a lawyer, politician and diplomat, was a member of the European Parliament from 1999 to 2004 and has also served as mayor of Petit-Quevilly. In his current position, he has held a fundamental yet discreet role in spreading the culture of human rights in French diplomacy. Zimeray has advocated for every French embassy to be a centre of human rights and has also represented French diplomacy in key trials in recent years.

As an Ambassador for Cotton Made in Africa, the Ethical Fashion Forum and MADE-BY, Baroness Young promotes ethical, sustainable fashion and is the founding chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Ethics and Sustainability in Fashion. In parliament, she also campaigns on criminal and social justice issues, such as children in state care, modern slavery and women and girls at risk.

Van Zyl's Maiyet is a luxury fashion brand that celebrates and cultivates traditional design and culture by partnering with global artisans to incorporate exquisitely handcrafted details into its collections. In 2001, van Zyl co-founded the International Center for Transitional Justice, an international human rights organisation based in New York City. He has served as an adviser and consultant to many NGOs and governments on transitional justice issues.

The Copenhagen Fashion Summit, will take place on May 11, 2017 in Copenhagen, Denmark. (KD)
