Fashion is for the inquisitive minds.
Therefore, it comes as no surprise to hear that fashion bible Vogue UK has taken it upon themselves to investigate the state of the fashion industry today. They are looking to explore what lies ahead when it comes to the direction that the fashion industry is currently headed in. With the trendsetting Alexa Chung at the helm, the docuseries aims to include input from current fashion students to the heads of major design houses, via journalists, buyers and every fashionista in between.
With a September 2015 launch date penciled in, I am curious about how this will all pan out. Will Vogue’s new docuseries be all air kisses and fluffy facts or will Chung really delve into the nitty gritty of this multi-billion pound industry and explore the future of fashion? Will the chosen insiders include the likes of Iris van Herpen, Syuzi Pakhchyan or Kimberly Bryant? If not, how will they report on the future of sustainability and technology? Will it be in passing, or will they really explore its potential?
I am glad to say that these could be the kind of questions that the Vogue series might just welcome. Why? because their docuseries approach seems to be all about starting a conversation. Vogue is encouraging input, which can be submitted via their comment box on their YouTube channel. It because of this rare openness that I am confident that the conversation between Vogue and the People will bring to the forefront invaluable insight that will open doors to different perspectives of an industry that is usually defined by the powers-that-be.
