Welcome to the nineteenth episode of ‘The IKKIVI Podcast’. In this episode we have with us Lydia Morrow. Lydia is a knitter, designer, artist, stylist, model, and sometimes influencer with a special interest in ethical fashion. She is passionate about creating a more just, equal, and diverse fashion industry that is less harmful to people and the environment through an understanding of the intersectional issues that affect it. She loves inspiring people to make their own clothes, get creative, and get a better understanding of their style.
On this week’s show we talk about the ways in which one can come to understand their own unique taste, why fashion is a playful and celebratory space for her, and how we can marry style with sustainability
In this conversation, she also shares with us the challenges prevalent in plus size modelling, the scale of exclusion in the fashion industry, what prevents the industry from becoming inclusive and accepting of body diversity and what kind of progress have we made in the last decade.
