    A Conversation With Mory Fontanez: A Fashion Solution - Revolution or Reform?

    A Conversation With Mory Fontanez: A Fashion Solution - Revolution or Reform?

    As companies are starting to seriously examine the damaging issues of racial inequality, micro-aggression, toxic work culture and unjust systems, a more sustainable, compassionate approach to conducting business is demanded of our C-suite leaders.  
    And while the revolution in the streets is the agency for much needed social changes taking place across industries, how are companies to go about transforming from a shareholder interested, profits-led business to one of connectedness, compassion and diversity? And are the steps to change one of gradual reform or should business leaders bring the radical energy from the streets to the corporate suites? 
    In this episode, we’re joined by values-based strategist, transformation consultant and founder, CEO of 822 Group, Mory Fontanez to discuss her methodology that involves quieting the “chaos” that consume work environments, while rooting out systemic issues and working with businesses leaders on a “cellular” level “to create purpose-driven brands that connect with customers”.
    As always, we hope you get involved and let us know your thoughts, comment, subscribe, rate this podcast (*****) and follow us on Instagram @TheConversations.Podcast for more.

    A Conversation With Dr. Alisha Moreland-Capuia: Can We Talk More About Black Trauma in Fashion?⠀

    A Conversation With Dr. Alisha Moreland-Capuia: Can We Talk More About Black Trauma in Fashion?⠀

    In our third week of civil unrest, in parallel, the racial fallout continues in fashion. As audiences, the Black fashion community and allies grow more suspicious and frustrated with brands, their missteps, formulaic messaging and a general lack of tangible action. Additionally, a number of executive exits due to claims of racism and toxic work environments (including the founders of Reformation, Man Repeller, Refinery29 and The Wing this week alone), expose in greater detail how problematic the fashion system is. Within all of that and more, many Black fashion professionals are also unpacking the trauma induced by the continued systemic racism in the workplace, fashion generally and beyond. ⠀⠀
    In this episode, we talk to psychiatrist (who will be joining faculty at McLean-Harvard) and author, Dr. Alisha Moreland-Capuia, about Black trauma in fashion, it’s impact, implications, strategies to foster understanding, tools for healing and advice for protection. This is one of the most powerful conversations we’ve had thus far, we implore you to listen and continue the conversations in your homes, work spaces and communities. Please also keep in touch with us via Instagram @TheConversations.Podcast, subscribe and rate this podcast (***** :)⠀⠀
    Lastly, make sure you pick up a copy of Dr. Alisha Moreland-Capuia’s book, Training for Change: Transforming Systems to be Trauma-Informed, Culturally Responsive, and Neuroscientifically Focused, which you can find via the link here. You can also follow her on Twitter (@DralishaMD) for regular goodness!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

    A Week in Review - Is This a Moment of True Change in Fashion?

    A Week in Review - Is This a Moment of True Change in Fashion?

    This week has been a mess for fashion.
    In the second week after the murder of George Floyd and subsequent civil unrest, brands, companies, influencers, corporations and fashion personalities came out en masse to show support for the Black Lives Matter movement. With that, in too many cases, the veil of inclusion, diversity, representation, empathy and transparency that has been carefully curated over the past few years, has been removed to expose fashion's deepest rooted problems: systemic racism, toxic work environments, a general culture of silencing and complicity and co-opting.⠀⠀
    On the flip side, the most positive and progressive moves have been made towards the fight for racial equity thus far. More Black people and people of all races are speaking up and speaking out. People are owning their part in this and taking real, meaningful steps to reconcile. People are connecting, mobilizing and strategizing to dismantle the parts of our industry that do not serve all of us. More conversations are being had and connections made, than ever before, between people, brands and organizations who want to put their resources to work. ⠀⠀
    We recognized that this is a watershed movement. In this conversation we recap the past week, review our hopes for the future and also discuss the feedback from our trending Business of Fashion Op-Ed: 'Fashion Is Part of The Race Problem'. ⠀⠀
    As always, we hope you get involved in this very important conversation and let us know your thoughts, comment, subscribe, rate this episode (*****) and follow us on Instagram @TheConversations.Podcast.⠀⠀

    A Conversation With Imran Amed: About Race & Fashion

    A Conversation With Imran Amed: About Race & Fashion

    Over the past few days, again, the world has been reckoning with the unconscionable police brutality after yet another unarmed black man, George Floyd, was murdered in the US. With consequential civil and racial unrest, and an overwhelming rallying cry for allyship and systemic change, social media has been policing the fashion industry tracking who in fashion is being vocal and who is remaining silent, what valuable action is being taken, as well as who is getting it wrong, what can we do more of, how can we do better, what this all means in the context of fashion.
     
    In this episode, we have a candid conversation on race and fashion with Imran Amed, Editor in Chief and CEO of The Business of Fashion (BoF). We discuss the role of fashion at a time like this, the varied responses from brands across the globe and his approach re: BoF to taking a position on these issues.
     
    This is a tough issue and a challenging but much needed conversation to have! We will continue to have it. We ask that you keep in touch, let us know what you think as well as subscribe, rate this episode (*****) and follow us @TheConversations.Podcast for more!
     
    **THIS EPISODE IS PART OF OUR SERIES RECORDED REMOTELY WHILE IN QUARANTINE, SO PLEASE EXCUSE ANY AUDIO DISRUPTIONS / AUDIO QUALITY, PARTICULARLY AS THIS WAS RECORED ACROSS A COUPLE OF CONTINENTS :) **

    A Conversation With Ruba Abu-Nimah: If We’re to Accept "Warhol’s" Statement of "Art Is What You Can Get Away With," What Does This Say About Image-Making in the Digital Age?

    A Conversation With Ruba Abu-Nimah: If We’re to Accept "Warhol’s" Statement of "Art Is What You Can Get Away With," What Does This Say About Image-Making in the Digital Age?

    Image-making has never been so democratic. A visual curation of our lives is the order of the day, with millions counting themselves as image-makers. But can brands still discern quality from attainable or the amateurs from the professionals and does it matter? And in the mist of the pandemic and beyond, where budgets are dwindling, teams are being downsized and digital platforms are key and met with very meaty KPIs, what is the place and value of strong, quality or high-end imagery? ”Art is what you can get away with,” is a disputed quote attributed to Andy Warhol and the starting point of this week’s conversation, where we're joined by one of our industry's most distinguished creative directors - Ruba Abu-Nimah.
     
    Ruba's impressive background as a graphic designer and image-maker, makes her a great voice to add to this conversation with us, having worked for over 30 years across global brands including Nike, Tiffany & Co, Marc Jacobs, Bobbi Brown, Pat McGrath and Shisheido. She was the first ever female creative director of American Elle Magazine, a founding designer at French Glamour and works with the iconic culture publication iD. She’s worked with the biggest names in image-making and currently leads creative as SVP Creative Director at Revlon. ⠀⠀
     
    We have an insightful conversation with Ruba about art, the shifts re: image-making in a digital age, the ongoing power and relevance of strong brand imagery, her expectations for image-making in a post Covid landscape, her thoughts on process and non-creatives making creative decisions.
