Silvia Venturini Fendi, head of leather goods and accessories and the last remaining member of the fashion house’s founding family still working within the business, told WWD: “Growing up in a family of strong and pioneering females, I am excited that such iconic women, leaders in their own fields, have been involved in this project, on this iconic Fendi bag.”
