Diversity NOW! Is the latest campaign from the award winning team at All Walks Beyond the Catwalk, founded by Erin O Connor, Caryn Franklin and Debra Bourne.
Diversity NOW! will harness the fashion talents of students in colleges up and down the country from Manchester, Edinburgh, London, Southampton, Leeds and Bournemouth to name a few.
The aim of this National Student Competition in association with i-D Magazine, sponsored by Succeed Foundation and supported by Graduate Fashion Week and Arts Thread, is to empower the next generation of creatives, from design, film, photography and journalism to create a fashion future that promotes a broader range of body and beauty ideals to truly celebrate individuality.
NOW! is the time for next-gen creative stars to boldly vision a fashion future which steps beyond stereotypes, redefines boundaries and celebrates a wider range of beauty and body ideals in age, size, shape and race.
A fashion future that empowers and emboldens people, which envisions impactful, emotionally considerate practices in all areas of the industry.
Take your lead from industry visionaries such as Vivienne Westwood, Nick Knight, Mark Fast, Alexander McQueen, Hussein Chalayan, Kayt Jones and Chen Man but remember we want you to show us what YOUR fashion future looks like.
We’re looking for directional, aspirational work showcasing fashion on a range of bodies/individuals. Think exciting, striking and cutting-edge images or prose.
