While parts of our lives have been put on pause during the pandemic, we’ve been given an opportunity to reflect on and imagine the changes we’d like to see in the world and to think about how we can positively contribute to and drive these changes. Lauren bridges the gap for us between a world in pandemic time and the growing awareness of sustainability – especially in the fashion industry.
Lauren shares with us why International Women's Day is so important and what it can mean for marginalised groups. According to the United Nations, girls and women are among the most vulnerable and marginalised members of our society. This is also true for women with dwarfism and other disabilities.
Fashion is omnipresent and always around us and we have the need to dress and express our individuality. Nevertheless, appropriate clothing is a privilege, because unfortunately there are few fashion labels that think clothes for people with disabilities. How can that be? And how can fashion be a means to more inclusion and diversity?
