Description

A DIVIDED WORLD

As we look to the future, we mustacknowledge that the world we inhabit is rife with contradiction. Polarisationis evident in every sector of society, and it splits the fashion domain too.There’s a clear separation between two dominant drivers each acting as anantidote to the other:

 

The first plays into the response tonew-found freedoms. The opportunity to break free of restraints and gather oncemore in celebration prompts a dressing up revival and a desire to expressindividuality, showing off, decadent, amplification both in high style and highcolour.

The other has a gentle more reflectivequality that upholds human and community values and puts the care of our planetbefore oneself. Clothing with integrity is paramount and each product has avisible production process from fibre, through to dying and manufacture, andeven building-in the onward life of the materials once the garments life iscomplete.

 

A universal thread that runs through bothaesthetics is environmental concerns. Going back is just not possible. Theworkings of our industry are, quite rightly, under great scrutiny andsustainable solutions are being tried and tested at every point in the chain.From the resources we use, the production processes and ethics through to theway we consume.  Post pandemic life isevolving in a hybrid way. Blended work sees us splitting our time between theoffice and our home. We have learnt to value things in our own neighbourhoods,whilst at the same time hankering for escape into new territory once more.Quieter calm pursuits have entered our day to day whilst we also crave theexcitement and surprise of being in noisy crowds. The fashion offer now is diverse.It needs to be to satisfy both sides.
