The #metoo movement started in Hollywood but soon allegations from the fashion world started coming to light unveiling a bigger picture of deep-rooted problems, particularly between models and photographers.
The Fashion Debates returns for another evening at The House of St Barnabas members’ club for a discussion on what needs to be done for the industry to move forward led by an expert panel.
Why did these assaults go unreported for so long? How do we turn allegations into affirmative action? Is boycotting offenders effective? What measures need to be put in place to prevent future incidences? We’ll be covering these vital questions, plus come with your own questions to put to the panel.
