Presented By Grace Woodward in THE SPACE at Graduate Fashion Week June 4th, Diversity and Individuality was key with everyone agreeing it’s cool to consider the impact of your work and acknowledge your power to influence the self-esteem of others.
We all say, the consumer is diverse and the market place is diverse! Thank you to all the students who entered the All Walks Diversity NOW! competition. You are all body image activists and carriers of a more inclusive and accepting message about personal identity so thanks for being part of the change.
