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.

Nim Ralph - Activist


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

Jasmin Sehra - Artist


“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”

Christina Ihekwoaba - Art Director


"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"
