FASHION FUTURES: NAVIGATING THE INDUSTRY IN 2020 AND BEYOND
Working with the next generation of fashion creatives is one of my key goals for 2019, so I was excited to be given the opportunity to put together and deliver a presentation on 'Fashion Futures: Navigating the Industry in 2020 and Beyond' for the Final Year BA Fashion Marketing Students at Regents University.
I had a platform where I was able to talk to the attendees about this constantly evolving industry, and the varied roles on offer at companies that go beyond the major fashion houses. It gave me a real buzz to encourage them to engage with brands such as Nanushka or Cult Gaia that are breathing new life into the industry, yet had flown under the radar to the audience of students. I was also able to share how a number of Industry Icons - from Hedi Slimane to Virgil Abloh - had pivoted their careers, and that a portfolio career is one of the many options they should all be considering.
