Caryn Franklin talks diversity and body image

Today is the last day of our SHOWcabinet: Prosthetics exhibition, so to coincide with this, we have brought you a video of diversity campaigner Caryn Franklin in conversation with Lou Stoppard.

As a co-founder of All Walks Beyond the Catwalk, celebration of diversity within the fashion industry is a cause very close to Franklin's heart. In this extensive interview, Franklin explains the importance of giving people access to a diverse range of images, and discusses Diversity NOW!, the new campaign from All Walks, which challenges students to create a fashion future that advocates a broader range of body and beauty ideals to truly celebrate individuality.

This interview is the latest installment from our Prosthetics: Conversations series, which has seen the likes of model Kelly Knox, and artist Una Burka, talk about their relationship with prosthetics and disability.  

Watch Franklin in conversation with Stoppard here and be sure to come down to SHOWstudio at 19 Motcomb Street, London to see the last day of our current exhibition SHOWcabinet: Prosthetics.
