Event description
Diversity is undoubtedly one of the biggest issues in the fashion industry. Embracing Inclusivity in fashion.

About this Event

The fashion industry is slowly becoming more diverse, or is it? Diversity and representation are now mainstream ideas. Lack of diversity in fashion across all levels of its workforce, from the entry level to the boardroom, where the power is concentrated. With that in mind, we're celebrating diversity at fashion week this season.

Panelists :

  • Amanda Coray : Founder & CEO of Influence Talent Management
  • Rebecca Cahua : Founder of Designing A Difference
  • Uduak Oduok : Esq. Fashion & Entertainment Lawyer at Ebitu Law Group, PC.
  • Alana Rayford : Founder of Urban Stitch

In recent years, words like "diversity" and "visibility" have been tossed around the fashion industry in the efforts to calm the justified complaints of neglected demographics of talented individuals. People are becoming more and more aware that an alarming majority of designers tend to present their latest collections while casting clone-like models that fit outdated standards of beauty and today, some of the most successful models are as venerated as the superstars they hang out with, for daring to flaunt a "different" shape, size, or skin colour in the ruthless domain of fashion. And while this marks a step in the right direction towards broader and more accurate representation, the image of a mostly Caucasian casts on the runway still prevails.

San Francisco Fashion Week is pleased to announce its 10th annual celebration of fashion and community. This year’s theme, “ RE-DEFINING FASHION ”, will explore the current state of the fashion industry’s continuing challenges in diversity and sustainability. In highlighting San Francisco Fashion Week’s prime initiatives in education and technology, the week long celebration will include conferences in Ethical Fashion with ECO Fashion Week; Diversity/Inclusivity panel & Beauty Night's Out both with Macy’s and Fashion Tech Conference at Target Open House. In addition to showcasing immersive tech startups and emerging talents, sustainable designers will also play a prominent role in this year's program.
