how a new wave of models are championing ideals of beauty
In this week’s episode of i-D podcast, Fash-ON Fash-OFF, broadcaster Zooey Gleaves is joined by models Jordan Charles, Josephine Jones and Al Ly to discuss how the inclusivity of new bodies in fashion can provoke change.
In this week's episode of i-D podcast, Fash-ON Fash_OFF, we hand the reins over to south London broadcaster and friend of i-D, Zooey Gleaves. Zooey investigates how the fashion industry has changed and how a new generation of models are championing ideas of representation. He discusses what the emergence of new bodies in fashion can provoke, and whether casting choices can be inclusive as well as tokenistic. And he hears from three models working today -- Jordan Charles, Josephine Jones and Al Ly -- asking them about their careers so far and their experiences of working in an industry accustomed to, as he puts it, “cookie cutter ideals of beauty”.
Every Thursday. Fash-ON Fash-OFF.
