Transcript: "Fashion, Culture and Justice: A NYFW Dialogue"

On Monday evening, September 11, 2017, I co-hosted a panel discussion alongside my comrade, Becca McCharen, founder of CHROMAT. Co-sponsored by The New School and part of the Nth Degree Series, "Fashion, Culture and Justice: A NYFW Dialogue" sought to identify, address, and deepen our understanding of the social and systemic issues that challenge and pervade the fashion system. Topics of the solutions-based discussion included cultural appropriation and cultural sensitivity, and what fashion makes possible in a tense political climate. A special "thank you" is owed to the team at CHROMAT for transcribing the entire conversation (including Q&A), which you can read here
