This week's #EthicalFashionPodcast welcomes Nigerian American creative director Alexander-Julian Gibbson as we explore racism and lack of representation in the fashion industry, and how this leads to obstacles for young black creatives in their pursuit of artistic careers. Gibbson leads a global conversation on diversity, and he sits with us this week to explain what’s being done to support the next generation of talent with champions for inclusion, such as the U.S.-based Black in Fashion Council.
“A part of the beauty in African clothes and African fashion is about the method in which the clothes are made, and I think that’s when you begin to talk about tradition.” We get an inside look into his journey into high fashion and how he’s passionate about supporting the next wave of emerging talent globally.
The full conversation of this week’s #EthicalFashionPodcast airs today! Available on Apple/Spotify. 🎧
