Panel Discussion: Moving Fashion Forward Together

published on 12 June 2020

Antoine Gregory is joined by Anifa Mvuemba, Nandi Howard and Shelby Ivey Christie to discuss fashion's role within activism and racism in the industry. Sharing their personal experiences, the panellists discuss the cost of being Black in fashion. They explore what it means to fight against a white system, working twice as hard to be seen, and the lack of documentation of Blackness in fashion and art history. The panel also discuss the changes they want to see, from stockists investing long-term in black designers, to representation for black designers and creatives in retail spaces and publications.
