The editor-in-chief of American Vogue has called for the fashion industry to be sustainable and not just focus on fast fashion.

"I think for all of us it means an attention more on craft, on creativity and less on the idea that clothes are instantly disposable, things that you will throw away just after one reading.

"[Its all about] talking to your audience, our readings about keeping clothes that you own and valuing the clothes that you own and wearing them again and again and again, and maybe giving them to your daughter or son or whatever the case may be," she says.

Anna previously shared that she believes there is "a long way to go" for diversity in fashion.
