My name is Bex and this is my blog! I’m a 24 year old Londoner, I’m obsessed with anywhere that serves sushi, I continue to drink dairy-free alternatives although I couldn’t hack it as a vegan, and I currently live in East London which is honestly my favourite place in the world.
I graduated from the London College of Fashion a number of years ago, and like many had the dream of pursuing a career in fashion. And as for many, it’s been somewhat a struggle. I completed my Master’s in Fashion History and Culture, during which I specialised in intersectional feminism and queer theory, and went on to teach as an Associate Lecturer on fashion and contextual issues whilst freelancing as a fashion writer
Building on what I have learnt and invested in over the years, this blog will look at a variety of issues surrounding the fashion industry. Less focused on stylistic trends in the world of fashion, it is intended to focus attention on developments and changes within the industry against a theoretical and historical backdrop, considering topics in the present day including gender, race, politics, sustainability and diversity. In this way, I feel we can truly appreciate the clothes we wear not just for their aesthetic meaning but for everything they represent about our culture, politics, history and life.
