‘The beauty of San Francisco is the diversity’

Forest fires, sky high rents and mono culture have given San Francisco a bad name, but Dubliner Keith O’Reilly has made the city at the Golden Gate his home – for the second time.

After completing his Leaving Cert in 1991 and studying marketing at the Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin), O’Reilly decided to join his many Irish friends in San Francisco to work as a DJ.

“In the 1990s, San Francisco was a completely different place than it is now. You’d hear Irish voices all the time and see familiar faces. A lot of the Irish people were working odd jobs and making music or art. It had that west coast vibe, which was on the cusp of something and the energy was incredible.”

O’Reilly says, because not everyone worked in tech, rents were a lot cheaper and you could afford to live in the city and hang out

ABC7 Unite: Designer from Bedford-Stuyvesant reversing fashion industry diversity trends

BEDFORD-STUYVESANT, Brooklyn (WABC) — New York’s recent Fashion Week was unlike any other. Much of it was virtual because of the coronavirus pandemic, and during the shows, emerging designers took center stage.

According to WWD, a site devoted to fashion, beauty and business, the decision to feature newcomers was deliberate because of the current lack of diversity in the fashion industry.

It’s odd that a business known for taking risks when it comes to style lags behind in terms of diversity, but it does. Black-owned fashion companies account for just 1.3% of all sales, making the work of Edvin Thompson even more important.

Bedford-Stuyvesant in Brooklyn is a world away from Manhattan’s Seventh Avenue — known as Fashion Avenue in the Garment District — but it’s also the future.

A major survey calls for entertainment industry-wide change after revealing that less than half of all respondents (49%) believe diversity and inclusion are core industry values.

The Hollywood Commission report released Thursday further broke down the numbers to show the disparity of thinking between gender and race. For example, 63% of white men said they saw people in the industry welcoming and valuing diverse backgrounds often, compared with 42% of white women and only 27% of Black women.

The findings come with the second part of the industry-wide worker survey, released by the Anita Hill-chaired Hollywood Commission. The report reveals significant differences in perceptions and experiences of bias and inclusion, with the findings urging the industry to make an organizational commitment to diversity.

From designers to Anna Wintour, fashion industry leaders say they are determined to improve diversity. How will we know whether they’ve succeeded?

In May, after the death of George Floyd while in police custody, activists poured into the streets with demands for racial justice and police reform. That multiethnic chorus expanded into a call for equity in every corner of the culture, from politics to fashion. In response, social media was quickly flooded with fashion companies, influencers and boldface names touting their support of Black Lives Matter with symbolic black squares and historical quotations about racial equality. The words of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and James Baldwin were in heavy rotation. But like a litany of “thoughts and prayers,” the brief messages resonated as perfunctory rather than instructive.

“A lot of people posted on Instagram, ‘We stand in solidarity.’ What does that even mean?” says designer Tom Ford, who serves as chairman of the Council of Fashion Designers of America. This is not the first time outrage has overflowed its
