Hey people,

I'm writing an essay on inclusivity and fashion, looking at how race and class effects consumption, creation and all round interaction with the fashion world at any level of the fashion world. I was just wondering people's views on the topic, do you think exclusion is a big problem in fashion and how can it be tackled, have you ever had any experiences which stick out to you, anything. Also, if you know any essays or articles on the topic please let me know.

As a young black guy from East London, I feel like it's a lot harder for me to interact with fashion. I wanna be a designer some day but feel like it's so cut off for me cause so many people get a lot of financial support from their family or have family members with connections in the industry who can help them.
