In her first speech at LeShow 2019, Ms. Khan spoke about the importance of exploring new business models for the leather and fur indsutry that would be critical to positive contribution to the planet. This included a discussion on the possibility of adapting the rental model which would enable the producers to make less items yet realize increased revenues. In addition to the Khan had one on one meetings with industry leaders on the possibility of creating more change makers in the industry who would lead the charge in building sustainable brands focused on positive initiatives that everyone can get behind. Last year’s keynote speech by Ms. Khan was hosted by Kopenhagen Fur who have invited Ms. Khan to their ethical fur farms where 100% of the animal is used for good, including bio fuel, medical, and practical benefits. This is an ongoing discussion with which Ms. Khan continues to monitor keenly in order to facilitate a real difference in the world.
