Seeing in Colour: Ace & Tate x gal-dem

For AW18, we’ve collaborated with London-based award-winning magazine gal-dem – a young media powerhouse that’s comprised solely of women and non-binary people of colour.

Our project, Seeing In Colour, engages with four creative personalities and learns about some of the assumptions they’ve had to face as a result of their skin colour. Together, we hope to broaden perspectives and continue our celebration of diversity in all its forms.

"Saying you don’t see colour is like saying you’re some higher being who lives in a world without prejudice"

"My work is a form of self-care: it’s about educating to dismantle because, in dismantling, people’s lives are saved"

“I want to have been able to create change —
 I want to use my art 
to create change in 
a way that is personal 
to me but also personal to others”

"In the years before Instagram, all my models were black or mixed race or brown. I wanted to see myself. In college, I would try to make magazines and make front covers of my friends to basically celebrate their features"
