5 ways the local beauty industry can be more inclusive

Women of colour are often made to feel excluded from mainstream industries, one of which is the contentious beauty industry. Just recently in South Africa, Clicks was subject to a hair-raising beauty campaign that seemed to suggest that the hair of Black women was substandard.

Currently, it’s been placed in an acceptable, agreeable arena having checked the inclusion box. Sadly, inclusion, as defined currently, isn’t inclusion at all nor has the industry been adjusted to make way for a specific woman with specific requirements.
To ensure that the local beauty industry is as inclusive as possible, here

While the automotive industry is showing signs of recovery, months of production stoppage, supply chain interruption and stay-at-home disruption has left many Chicago-area dealers with few new cars and lots of empty spaces.

Adding to the inventory shortage, the new model year — an automotive rite of fall — has yet to hit showrooms in any significant numbers. Many 2021 models may not actually arrive until 2021.

A study led by researchers from Swinburne’s Center for Mental Health (CMH) has found that while most people reported spending less time investing in their appearance since COVID-19 began, individuals with high dysmorphic concern (excessive preoccupation with a flaw in their appearance) continued to feel self-conscious about their appearance.

The study, which was published in the International Journal of Eating Disorders was conducted as part of the COVID-19 and you: mental health in Australia now survey (COLLATE) online survey.

Beauty services as a coping mechanism

As a precautionary measure against COVID-19, Australia implemented a widespread temporary closure of beauty and cosmetic services. Given that beauty services are widely used for stress relief and to enhance confidence, the study was conducted to explore the relationship between the closure of these services, distress, and engagement in other appearance-focused behaviors.

Participants with high and low levels of dysmorphic concern

Lindsey Graham on Spreading Potential Russian Disinformation: It Doesn’t Matter If It’s True

Former Hillary Clinton aides, ex-intelligence officials and Senate Democrats are accusing Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe of laundering Russian disinformation before an election after Ratcliffe suggested Clinton attempted to manufacture a scandal about Russian interference in the 2016 election on behalf of President Trump.On Tuesday, Ratcliffe, a loyalist whom Trump placed atop U.S. intelligence in the spring, sent Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) a letter claiming that in late July 2016, U.S. intelligence acquired “insight” into a Russian intelligence analysis. That analysis, Ratcliffe summarized in his letter, claimed that Clinton had a plan to attack Trump by tying him to the 2016 hack of the Democratic National Committee. Trump, in late July 2016, had publicly called for Russia to purloin Clinton’s emails. And both U.S. intelligence and former special counsel Robert Mueller have since

My Race Made Me Stand Out In The Fashion Industry, So I Refused To Dress To Fit In

kenya hunt   fashion editor

Some fashion editors are born into a life of inherited 2.55 bags and Saint Laurent blouses. I am not one of them. I’m the child of a beach town in the southeastern US state of Virginia: the land of boardwalks, shopping malls, tie-dye, Abercrombie & Fitch flip flops and Gap jeans. A world away from London, Milan and Paris — New York, even. I didn’t develop a natural knack for styling when adolescence set in. (I wasn’t even voted best dressed at school.) Instead, I grew into my sense of style – and self – slowly, from one geographic move to another.

I’ve spent the vast majority of my life in fashion as an outsider — as in, ‘The American’ and, most often, ‘The Black American’. Rather than try to acclimatise to my surroundings, I leaned into my state of difference. My clothes – which, for a large chunk of

Extinction Rebellion Calls on Fashion Industry to Transform Itself

Environmental activist group Extinction Rebellion has released an open letter to the fashion industry, urging it to address the culture of overconsumption and destruction. Its release coincides with Paris Fashion Week, which runs from September 28 to October 6 this year. 

The open letter takes the form of a video, and it uses film footage of shoppers, luxury brand storefronts, and burning apparel set into pictures of deforested land. The narrator, climate activist Tori Tsui, reads aloud quotes from the industry’s own leaders who have, interestingly, spoken out during the COVID-19 pandemic against fashion’s outsized environmental footprint.

The quotes come from Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele (who said Gucci would reduce its number of annual shows), Stella McCartney, Louis Vitton’s menswear designer Virgil Abloh, Paul Dillinger of Levi Strauss & Co, and Caroline Rush, head of the British Fashion Council (which has called for a reset in light of lockdown),

How Black Led Fashion Organizations are Holding the Industry Accountable

From Harper’s BAZAAR

June 2 is a day that will live in Instagram history (or maybe infamy). Black tiles flooded Instagram feeds as part of #BlackoutTuesday, a social campaign to raise awareness for the Black Lives Matter movement. George Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man, had been killed by Minneapolis police just a week earlier, sparking protests across the nation and demands for change. Calls for an end to systemic racism, police brutality, and white supremacy were loud and righteous. So #BlackoutTuesday, a hashtag that was posted around 28 million times, went viral.

Many companies participated in #BlackoutTuesday, including countless fashion brands. However, the move struck many—particularly Black and Brown people who work within those companies—as performative. It felt disingenuous, especially coming from an industry so entrenched in systemic racism, like a moment of optical allyship that didn’t go far enough.

“We can’t just go
