A decade of fashion; here’s to the next one.
The past decade has been turbulent – and defining – for fashion: child labour, climate crisis, gender inequality, animal cruelty, and reckless plastic pollution, just to name a few.
In these critical times, finding media that reports with rigour and integrity at heart is difficult.
Finding media that informs all, regardless of where they live or if they can afford to pay, is even harder.
Moreover, independent fashion media magazines are increasingly silenced by social media misinformation and commercial ownership.
