What These Australian Women Want to See Change in the Fashion Industry
This feature is dedicated to our #NoChangeNoFuture initiative. From the Women's March, to Australia voting yes to same sex marriage, and the #MeToo movement, 2017 taught us to look beyond ourselves and come together as a collective of powerful women who are writing our own history. Join us as we cancel setting one-dimensional personal resolutions this January and commit to being the change we want to see. Because without change, there is no future.
It feels like the world is changing, and the fashion industry isn't immune. In fact, I would say designers, models and media are somewhat leading the charge when it comes to shifting social views and standing up for minorities.
We're seeing more diversity than ever on runways, campaigns are more representative of real women, brands are taking steps to be more ethical and sustainable, and designers are using their status and collections to push political agendas that matter to women (the new Tom Ford Pussy Power bag, we're looking at you).
There is still a lot of work to be done though. So, we asked some of the Australia's most influential women in fashion what changes they want to see in 2018 . . . If even some of what they said comes to fruition, we're in for an incredibly empowering year.
