"black fashion council" Discussed on The Fashion Geeks

"Is literally that a part and It's important for the whole. And it brings. Diversity. In communication diversity in practice diversity in anything and everything. I'm trying to. Do you understand what I'm trying to say rich you get what I'm saying. So so the thing about the Kelly initiative, which I like is that they're challenging, CFDA? Yeah, they're saying. They're do talking about numbers. They want them to do an industry-wide senses. So they can get demographic information. Which? Is Data your. Data is good right right and have companies that that whole employment thing they what numbers for that And then they don't want the FDA to audit themselves now. No, no right. It's a port authorities. The Fox guarding the Hen House so So but I like I like what they have to say. So and that crew is created to the to the creators of that crew they have a podcast. And I want to check them out because they look really heavy. What's the name of the podcast? Oh. I can't remember. It's the creators I think. Okay. I'm trying to find. Yeah. So it's by two of the three founders. Jason Campbell in Henrietta Galina so I like I like what they're saying. So we need metrics, we need metrics. Metrics. Well. That's good because they need to the front of the 'cause. Act Own businesses constitute essentially less than two percent. Of total retail sales. Here in America to percents. Yeah. Like one point three percent. Essentially. Off the top of my head versus. Over eighty five percent. For White. Owned businesses. But Yeah we comprised fifteen percent of the population. So there's a disparity. Yeah. So. The Holders of the power in the institution. They have to have to make a change if they really WANNA fortify. Would they put on an ad right? They got they gotta put action behind their words. It calls to mind another article I said to you. That's titled and I just Love This woke washing your company won't cut it. That I think we'll be for our next episode. Because I wanna I just WanNa see I wanNA. Give that proper. Space for you to to discourse. Want. Okay. So but I love that I've never heard that saying and I read it. I was like, Oh, my gosh, that's it. Because I've called it lip service you know call you call what you want I mean the. Done the interviews I've done while you've been gone we've talked about it. Because it's heads its head scratching stuff. To have a black square on instagram. I understand the symbolism I understand is I'm not saying there's anything wrong with it. But is this is this ephemeral? An Making, Oh, you making a profit. Off. The. Symbolism. That's it. That's that's that's really that's that's the issue. So. Let's talk about the Black Fashion Council. And their their new essentially right so they're like, hey. We got something to say to. We got beef. So. But what I like what they? WanNa do they WANNA operate as umbrella organization. For any. Initiative that's coming down the pike. Again numbers they want. Oversight. Maybe. Accountability Right. They want to actually have a score car for brands. On say how you doing? I got an idea here through its first endeavor. The organization is asking fashion companies to pledge to work with the Group for at least the next three years. To help build a quality.

"I think that what's really important of is that everyone else acknowledges where they have a privilege in the industry. Some people are being extremely vocal and using resources and sharing resources on instagram at that doesn't only fall or why people in the industry I've seen it with like other people of Color really acknowledging where they also have fallen short for their colleagues or friends of and how they have also done things that were you know consciously I s right but. Moving forward, they also have to do the work a lot of the work we're doing in the Black Fashion Council and partner with a everyone. Is that. The people on the other side are not all black, and so we're giving you tools for success at you need to drive this forward I don't sit in your corporate meetings I have not on all emails threats, but if Fortify were you are really? Trying to make this change and you guys are all not black people than you need you to do the work we can't do this alone and It's essential for work with everyone because there are corners of you various. For conversations that we just simply don't have access to. So acknowledging your privilege using your network and your voice, I think your voice especially there's so many things that up in conversations comments that people just really don't check out the door and so those types of. You know normal conversations are just ingrained in people and they get very comfortable with knowing that they had this veil of protection. So definitely using their air platform and you know their body is like either be on the front line and and make the change that you say you WanNa see as well. I think the amazing thing about this moment is so many different initiatives with clear goals that people can support. I think the fact that there are so many different things being started right now bike black we were in action is incredible. So we've given options. To the industry to say, what do you want to support? You now have four or five great means that you can support. As I think instead of sitting back and saying like, but what which one do I just support just aside and pick one and two port or two or whatever but support what's already being done again, you know we don't want to create these movements and create these organizations and we're out here doing it only with black people. This is an opportunity for white colleagues to say you know what this organization that you've started. Here's what I'm GonNa do to support that. The companies out there. They can say you know what guys through five organizations that we support as a company. If you want to all like donate something from it from your paycheck will match it. So I think that you know this is probably been the easiest time in history for companies to know exactly what to do with the support because the groundwork has already been a by all different organizations have been created. Another probably I think there's a great points I think to ask what Sandrine said I think he's so church about acknowledging of. I i..

Biggest point that we need to tackle in order to start fixing all the little problems that have come out of this. Don't know if one of you wants to start. I'll. Brand half. Start I think on what Sandrine Lindsay is doing is asking with the Black Fashion Council asking brands to actually put a quantitative solution in place it's the same thing that Aurora Jane tasked with a fifteen percent pledge i. think the brands have to fully commit and the way that they can fully commit being you know here's exactly what we're going to do. So when you say I want my sales to get better you don't say go out to your. Team and say, you know what we want better cells next year what you do is you say WanNa ten percent increase we want to fifteen percent increase you know right so you create very clear goals so that you know if you're successful in meeting those goals or not successful meeting notes and if you're not successful, there are things you put in place to make sure you overcome that in me that all it's the same thing with this rain so I think. The first thing that Branston do is say, what is our commitment? What is our our firm commitment? Let's start with a very clear commitment and work our way back because my fear is that if we just start having conversations in conversation is a really key piece to this in having with lack people in non black people ruling to have honest dialogue. But my fear is that if we're only talking is the passion Unin die down in another. Year and I. think that's Oliver Fear Rate. But if you put a very clear plan in place and you say, this is what these are the numbers. We're GONNA hit across our organization that means in our leadership and on our boards because let's talk about boards and how they're barely any black people boards. There's only one black. CEO in the entire fashion industry. So that's just say what are we gonNa do across the Board in our organization? And then you work backwards from the air and doing what you have to do to to meet that goal.
