Diversity: A Vital Issue WhyNOW? WhyYOU?
NOW is the time for CREATIVES to harness their power and lead the way, by boldly visioning an expanded fashion future which steps beyond stereotypes, redefines boundaries and celebrates a wider range of beauty and body ideals in age, size, gender, race and physical ability.
A fashion future that empowers and emboldens the viewer and the wearer, envisioning impactful, emotionally considerate, commercially relevant practice in all areas of the industry. Contribute to the narrative of your generation. One where crowd funding and social media platforms are encouraging the voice of a new generation to create a fresh global perspective despite times of increasing corporatisation.
Help us build a library of fashion design, imagery and communication that celebrates difference of skin tone, age, size and body type, to encourage debate about the power of fashion on our lives and ultimately, on our well being.
