A Strong Argument for Inclusion Riders in the Fashion Industry (Fashionista)
At SXSW, while speaking on a panel titled Resistance & Disruption Through Diversity & Data, influencers Nicolette Mason and Blake Gifford talked about the ways they are pushing brands to make diversity more of a priority. “For a lot of offers that I’ve gotten lately, I’ll ask who else is casted in the program,” said Mason. “And if I am their only diverse person that doesn’t really reflect very well on them in my opinion and the answer is ‘no.'”
“It’s not enough to get through the door if you close it behind you,” said Gifford.
The face you make when you’re scheduled to speak at SXSW tomorrow but when you try to check in to your flight, you find out your ticket was never processed. Then when you’re booked on a new flight, it’s for the wrong time AND your name is spelled incorrectly. So they had to cancel that flight and book yet ANOTHER one. O, and none of the clothes you requested to wear arrived in time so you’re just going to throw whatever in your suitcase and probably end up dressed like Flavor Flav. 🤷🏾♀️😂 But I’m doing what determined women do and still getting sh*t done. 💪🏾 All of your tags and mentions today definitely helped me laugh it off and roll with the punches. So THANK YOU! 👭💕 Can’t wait to get weird in Austin this weekend!
