Frances Corner OBE is a strong force in fashion activism. She’s been head of the London College of Fashion since 2005, done a TED talk, and for International Women’s Day she wrote an opinion piece for It’s Nice That about how fashion can be political.
At Nicer Tuesdays she explored this theme in more depth, with fascinating and often shocking examples of how injustice still goes on in the industry, and how movements and initiatives are effecting change. “There are 10-15,000 slaves in the UK. There are more slaves in the world now than when slavery was abolished. Initiatives like Fashion Revolution make us ask ‘who made our clothes’ and are helping create more conscious consumers.”
