1:22 pm
a convergence of fashion and activism with the industry focusing on not only creating goods by doing good so is this awakening a moment or a movement because this fashion trends go one day you're in and the next you're out we're here to discuss this our panel of models in the studio we have a great smile hari and mario malik and in new york city jillian mercado and how do you my eight and welcome everyone to this stream so good to have you here i know you're busy in the midst of new york fashion week so we appreciate you taking the time because this is a topic that our community cares about and so with that i'm going to share a tweet from one of them i'm going to give us a little bit of a spicy start some argue pre-warning you there this is. who tweets and historically fashion played a role in promoting social change today i believe it's used more to feel good versus doing good jillian you want to take that on this is more about what it looks
1:23 pm
like than actually doing the work. but that's because i think that. in today's world i think that a sense models have a voice because of social media and or to act on it to be asked of the and actually the work and show that you know show or. run away from fashion but we also are very passionate about the things that are only a fact. or that we. have the power and the platform so we go out and do it and show that. even in the fashion industry so i want to share an example right away with our audience this is a tweet that you tweeted telling him of my new c r fashion but cover story is all about unicef efforts to help children operated join me and jihad deed and supporting unicef usa and this incredible work you can scroll down there and you can see the cover of the c.r.
1:24 pm
fashion book out today and this is what you all are doing why she has need it in and more come together for c r thirteen and unicef of course i watched you at a panel just this weekend talked about this very topic fashion activism so this is something that new york fashion week thinks is important to discuss why was it important for you to talk about this issue. no actually have it. how me being it i don't know. your big thank you cover mean everything actually one of my favorite. editorial. or the. you know on a magazine and we're bringing together actors. and we're showing the world who are very much. on the very wealthy high fashion and you could be working with
1:25 pm
article or going to you know and i just want to encourage everybody. and i will be reporting you know. and so it looks like a little connection is breaking up just a little bit and that is coming to us from new york city but i wanted to share another example that people notice in new york fashion week this is a weasel workshop that's their handle they tweet in cromer party uses their medium body positivity and inclusion incredible show at new york fashion week and they sent this tweet here grace says new york fashion week spring twenty one thousand runway images from both parties are absolutely killing it with their designs and use all really body shapes of all types of people from all walks of life what was it you know differently about this year than maybe perhaps other years it's well
1:26 pm
phenomenal maybe to put things in perspective i've been in the industry for about twelve years. and i have been just so. i mean to put it pretty well for that i am born with a straight size stander and the very unlike homogenously group of model cars for certain things and of course i benefited from some of. as of my natural body type but to see women in my family woman around the world to men as well who who differ and body shape race ethnicity you know sexuality represented in fashion in the media it means everything it means that we are trying to move at least collectively as a culture and society into a more truthful space. with it martin can you relate to that absolutely i do believe fashion is storytelling and in order for us to be able to connect with the
1:27 pm
rest of the walls and influence because fashion influences so many is for us to have voices to tell the stories of the voiceless and unheard through fashion or through our experiences and this is why i believe for myself specifically that being a model was for me to be a model with purpose because i came as a refugee and i got this privilege and platform and i feel fortunate so i feel like i have to use my platform in ways where i can make a change and it's so important for us in the fashion industry to be involved in making the change because we have that platform to do so and i love that you mentioned the platform we were just seeing images of some of your modeling i want to share a closer look with our audience here this is kenneth cole but courageous class q. and a mari moloch you can see some of her modeling there but then this picture is
1:28 pm
a little bit different talk to us about what we are seeing here in this picture you are with a group of students holding up minstrel kits yeah talk to us about that and why they're so important to you so since i got involved in the fashion industry i always wanted to share the stories of where i come from south sudan south sudan is the youngest country in the world we're facing one of the worst refugee crisis as well. now and the ones who are suffering the most are women and children over fifty percent of south sudan is children under the age of eighteen years old and sixty four percent are women and we are not prioritized to have empowerment to have equality or to have education when a girl menstruate she is already considered to be a woman and she doesn't have access to school after that she is married all and many girls end up missing three four or five days of school because they don't have
1:29 pm
access to menstrual products or they completely drop out of school so withstand for education are nonprofit organization is that we provide menstrual hold products and we give free menstrual health products that picture was a picture of girls holding underwears where we put kits together i go there every year and supply girls in school with kits and underwear is last the girl for one to three years it's incredible and it's leakage free it's a stain of all is free usable and this is not an issue that's just in south sudan or all over the world is in refugee camps this in america in prisons and homeless shelters and. mental products should be free like toilet paper and that's what we're working on that and of course they are not doing i see you nodding your head there what did you want to. i mean it's amazing because. you didn't but i would
1:30 pm
think earlier using our for show the world. and it's very unfortunate for our knowledge that and make change you know i think we're just at the community we had you had it not. you know now we're out there using our good making a difference that much needed and. i'll. talk about. around the world because i'm very privileged to have grown betty. where we have. people there's so many people in the world. and in my case with disability. something that not talked about. and make sure that we women and children are. everywhere around the world so i want
1:31 pm
to share with our audience what that looks like for you and it's in new york city where you are part of this is times square the heart of the city look at argo i guess sharon clapping for you and well deserved doing arcata i'm not too outspoken too vulnerable drug driven defiant or ambitious strong too confident or even too different this is the ad campaign for layo a little lady you can see there with it behind you. this moment of course resonated online it sent ripple effects this is your face on this campaign i want to our audience to have a look at the video behind this campaign featuring jillian mcconnell have a look. when i was diagnosed with my disability. there was this encyclopedia of things that i should know shouldn't do should do act. so right there and then i was faced with so many things that i wasn't even sure that i actually wanted to follow. and you know you're
1:32 pm
a little baby you don't know but then as an adult you realize that. you don't have to follow the rules that someone else. has for you you can write your own journey in your own rule book and that's something that i face every single day trying to add a new rule in my own. many of his jillian ricardo together we can face anything. you can write your own rulebook i'm taking notes they're interesting and interesting comment that came up after you tweeted that out was this from tatyana but i wanted to bring it out tatyana says this is gorgeous but i'm out they didn't show your chair but i know it's all about the face congratulations and this of course what she's talking about talk to us about that idea not showing the chair. because nobody else was there body. there right there. everyone know
1:33 pm
that that's i think the point is you know i. i. but it's also i think that people here or the melody. and i think that we've been brainwashed. people who. think that they. be without actually getting hurt. regarding her called. me because. being. here on site are not ingrates i want to bring this up because our guests are hearing our audience is hearing what our guests have to say and people read said how helpful or difficult is the fashion industry and its support for nonprofit activities as initiated by members like yourself is it is it difficult to do to bridge those two parts of your identity. you know when so that asked me just comment on what julie
1:34 pm
was jillian knows this i don't know if you know this but my father is in a wheelchair he was in an accident i was six months. old and i met when i met jillian i was just out and i was just astonished at her personality and charisma and her her your ambition because she's right in that example is a face campaign why should her chair be there her chair is a part of her and i think obviously from my father and from my family we love to see the fact that you aren't sure because yes we do need to know that you exist and that you are a definition of beauty as well and i for a long time all my life until i met you didn't think that this day would come i didn't think that a person in a wheelchair would be a supermodel and so thank you for being that shining light and to answer the question twitter i was brought up to and yeah it is it is kind of difficult especially now because where i mean i feel like the industry is a little oversaturated and it's quite difficult to get your project or your idea at the forefront of several different ideas. but i on the other hand have been so
1:35 pm
grateful and pretty lucky with some of the relationships i've made in this industry who have helped me along the way creating projects so my nonprofit is there to cater to creating clean energy solutions for communities around the world the don't have access to power i i was born in reason edmonton alberta moved to toronto and high school my parents come from. eritrea they are immigrants they you know they brought i was raised with a serious relationship with my country and my continent and so when i got my first big break with the big designers you launch she walking exclusively with them the first thing i wanted to do with this amazing opportunity to live like being in paris was go home and i took myself home and i went alone which is not normal for most of us kids. for three weeks i don't really speak the language that well i can get by baby talk i just i went there and i realized that i was born and raised in a way that's different and i have now
1:36 pm
a platform an opportunity to do something about that in a place that my family and friends and relatives are from relatable countries around the continent and world and so that's what i'm doing so i was i had my devices myself and my laptop in there and i was like ok i can charge anything. i don't know when the next time i'll be able to use a device is and i decided then and there that this is going to be my project this is what i'm going to do and obviously i chose clean energy because while maybe it's not obvious to everyone but we are running out of fossil fuels one two we are harming the planet in an x. rate. and three i just want to see the youth and in parts in developing nations have the same access and opportunities that we do around the world if you take a look at my laptop here you will see that project clean energy for all. this headline i think pretty much sums it up for grace fashion and social activism the busy life
1:37 pm
of model grace the canadian model aims to fight poverty with her project and her company i could see you nodding there when grace was talking about using that platform and going about colm to try to give back or rethinking. well arthur all great and my neighbor. i'm from mali so i can totally relate to what you're going home and i recently got to go home for the first time too and that experience was. like changing and going back to the camp that i was born into and the all the hope and you know like it to me you realize like it doesn't matter if a child in america or. a different part of the world there are still children and they want it one happy. education in third. and.
1:38 pm
you know all clearly all children have a childhood i have a happy childhood so i'm so proud of your grave and i'm sad to have had like thought of me everything that you. think exactly like or in a time when fashion and we could do so much with it you know whether it's going back even just sharing it on our social media or being on time where by the way julie you are oh my gosh i'm literally in tears that little beautiful and i think of all the little girls that will you know that and relate to you and that for the first time the industry is providing people and i'm just going credibly honored to be with a woman and i learned so much every day you guys. are in the alliance and yeah i'm just going right in new direction in the industry. we have a question live on you tube from someone named she's a former stream fellow and she says do you feel your activism is being taken
1:39 pm
seriously or do people think you're being self promoting and that in itself is not effective mario give that one to you do you think you're taken seriously are you looked at as a that's just a model she's a fashion. i think before i start a thing. the same time you did twelve years ago and i wanted to speak my voice as a model and have the story behind me and many people did not get that in the industry it's like no you're supposed to just show up for the client take pictures look beautiful but i wanted to have something behind it but now it's a huge commodity to be a model activist it's trendy but at the same time i take it into consideration as a blessing because we are able to utilize our voices as well as our beauty i guess to make a change and thanks to social media because social media is sure it could be a curse or a blessing but it depends on how you the individual can take matters into your
1:40 pm
hands and be ethical and responsible with how you utilize your message so not even just being a model but just being a human being we all are. we have a specific way where we can give. our opinions out and have a voice and if you're a model an actor or a doctor or lawyer or even a dishwasher you still have a platform to speak up because there are so many other people in the world who don't have that platform and that's the way we can utilize these ways so. yeah right now it's pretty cool to be able to speak our voices as well as use our faces . because what you may not know about mary she's also a d.j. so many have it. ready to fall over all over again where many hot i want to bring
1:41 pm
in a little bit of pushback about this is a headline from someone who said just the video comment the headline is why does fashion suddenly care about activism so this is picking up on the idea that this is just a trend we've got a video comment from the author of this piece his name is jake hawley the freelance journalist out of the u.k. and this is what he asks. so do you think it's great that seventy designers are using their platforms to raise awareness is an issue but i also think it's worth remembering that the fashion industry is the second in the world. has an issue still is that we need to see if somebody is up to the oppression whether they have a transparent supply chain whether or not they kind of like to avoid exploitation and whether or not they have divest representation in the inside out also think that in today's political climate control lots of business with the marketing tools especially when it comes to dealing with seem to be a more engaged use generation so i think that's what runs i should be an activist it means doing if more than one season means anything at least some of the proceeds i'm also looking within that are in companies to fix the issues of. doing it for
1:42 pm
more than one season julianne i want to throw that one over to you what you make about. well there's a lot right right. i mean yeah i can see how you can see that you know this may look like it's a trend there what but i feel like specially now i mean i can be honest and tell you that i have never been to more protests in march in my life than i have in the past year to us because we had we are now the thing that was like when they emerged as the now and that our rights can be quickly taken away from us so quickly but i feel like you know the piggyback of what was that before we had this like a meeting one that were reaching millions and millions of people and where talking and posting about things that actually matter and cared about and i couldn't back everything you know and i feel like you know we're yes we're out in the fashion you
1:43 pm
