With all that was going on during New York Fashion Week, we decided to delay these videos in case they got lost. They’re from the Brands with a Conscience ceremony at MIP in Paris earlier this month (we detailed the winners here at Lucire in January), which the Medinge Group has been running for six years. The ﬁlming was done by Elmine Wijnia, wife of long-standing member Ton Zijlstra.
The ﬁrst is a video introducing the ceremony, featuring Medinge chairman Thomas Gad, Medinge CEO and Lucire travel ed. Stanley Moss, and Pierre d’Huy, one of my fellow directors. Noted member and author Sicco van Gelder introduces one of the videos.
The Colin Morley Award was presented posthumously to Paul Newman, who was voted the winner by a large margin by the BWAC committee. In the words of Stanley: ‘On a per capita basis, he was the most generous person on Earth. He gave away, in his lifetime, over $250 million.’
The subsequent videos feature the acceptances from Ragbag, Ekomarine, One Water and Chhatra Sagar.
