The fashion industry has become more intertwined with social issues over the past several decades, as models, designers, and other fashion professionals have made statements regarding their beliefs through their work. One particular issue that has become more increasingly prevalent as of late is the topic of women’s rights, and the fashion industry — which is largely a female-focused industry — is refusing to stay silent.
The Fashionography, a digital platform and creative agency, has been sharing the latest fashion news as well as original content for the past seven years. The platform often shares articles that combine fashion with social-related issues, effortlessly highlighting important topics and giving a voice to those in the industry.
The platform is focused on curating not only relevant and trendy content, but sparking meaningful, important conversations as it pertains to fashion and the news. It serves as inspiration for some of the industry’s top voices, and The Fashionography’s Instagram account is even followed by some of fashion’s industry leaders — such as top casting director Piergiorgio Del Moro, supermodels Candice Swanepoel, Anna Ewers, photographers Inez & Vinoodh, and many more.
The Fashionography has partnered with some world-renowned companies, including Dior, Chanel, Bottega Veneta, Tommy Hilfiger, and top agency The Lions Management. The platform works closely with the famed agency to produce content surrounding various beauty, fashion, entertainment or social media clients. Some of the clients have been Lara Stone, Omar Apolla, Don Toliver and Candice Swanepoel.
Most recently, Julia Kisla, CEO of The Lions Management, published a piece in partnership with The Fashionography titled Women v. Liberty. Women’s Equality Day recently passed, although the fight for women’s rights is far from over. On Aug. 26, the United States observes Women’s Equality Day on the anniversary of the 1920 adoption of the Nineteenth Constitutional Amendment, which gave women the right to vote.
Kisla published an article that focused on several aspects of the women’s rights movement that she cleverly named “The Constitution v. 2022,” “Politics v. Abortion,” “The Supreme Court v. Public Opinion,” and more. Several models and tastemakers were also featured in the article; Minami Gessel gave her thoughts on the end of Roe v. Wade; Beyoncé Ambrose shared information regarding affordable access to period products; Cici Tamez spoke about the internation issue related to domestic violence; Sarah Daoui wrote about bringing immigration stories to educational spaces; and Rose Daniels shared her thoughts on being a feminist and ally.
While many feel that fashion is merely aesthetic, The Fashionography is pushing the notion forward that the industry is much deeper than just clothing. Be on the lookout for future think pieces from The Lions Management as the strategic partnership with The Fashionography continues.
