All walks – Beyond the Catwalk 

EveryBodyCounts

Three innovative, creative and very ambitions ladies within the fashion industry in 2012 created a way of showcasing the work of ‘8 cutting-edge designers on a 8 professional models aged between 18-65 and size 8-16, as a celebration of individuality and diversity.’

‘The All Walks mission is simple: to expand upon the imagery coming out of our industry and mirror a more realistic range of women, in age, size, race and appearance than fashion standards currently offer. We also challenge growing hyper-sexualisation of young women in fashion. The All Walks brand asks all fashion practitioners new and old to consider their own viewpoint on moral and ethical boundaries believing that positive messaging around self-esteem fro young women and men is crucial.’

Caryn Franklin, Debra Bourne and Erin O’Connor created All Walks Beyond the Catwalk. Franklin is a Fashion Commentator and broadcaster within the industry, O’Connor, the Model of the Sanctury and Bourne, a fashion consultant and former PR director at the company Lynne Franks. They set out  and recruited a team of casting agents, film directors, leading style magazines, printers and make up artists to create this project.

Fashion Monitor – MY profession

FM-Metro1

When looking deeper into the fashion industry, and the promotional aspects within the business, I have realised that not only is there such a range of available jobs, but they have come so far, and developed so much over the years! This therefore leads me to believe that although I have an idea of a job at the end of my degree, the fast moving industry may therefore have a more in-depth and up to date position instead; which is in fact incredibly exciting.

Looking into my profession is something which I find so interesting, yet due to the amount of jobs, and the development of the existing ones, I have to be incredible careful to be open and willing to change with the industry, therefore looking at an exact job can be hard, but using Fashion Monitor has enabled me to look at what is current, and possible jobs I would find myself working in within the next 5 years. This has enabled me to look in more depth at the industry, as well as myself and what I want to get out of the fashion industry, and where I will be able to leave my stamp.
