My message to the fashion industry :
Essentially, you need to change, stop , think and evolve. For centuries, you’ve been recycling the same ideologies and patterns in which you steal the culture and aesthetics of marginalised communities yet keep these communities oppressed rather than uplifting them. The white men in suits at the top do not represent us !!!!
Inclusivity needs to be at every level , not just at the bottom in the department stores , we want POC’s in marketing , in photography, in publishing , in buying , in styling , in suits. However, we don’t want you to adopt this mentality for performative reasons because it’s so obvious when you do , hence inclusivity is not a trend. So evolve organically and authentically to make this world that much more liveable, otherwise you will have no market to market to.
