Hello there,

Welcome to Platform. This blog is about fashion, first.

Platform is focused on emerging talents and alternative fashion. Through this online magazine, we are experimenting and mixing fashion with multiple areas. This is a medium that allows us to express our conception of fashion. We truly believe fashion is more than styles and trends. This is part of an entire system. This is a way to read and understand our societies. 

Enjoy your fashion exploration on  Platform.

Essay on cultural appropriation: the use of Afro-culture within the fashion industry

Cultural appropriation refers to the 'the unacknowledged or inappropriate adoption of the customs, practices, ideas, etc. of one people or society by members of another and typically more dominant people or society.' This concept implies the use of cultural codes of social minorities by a dominant group.

Rosie Broadhead: Fashion that heals

After studying ‘Material Futures’ at CSM, Rosie started her label by creating garments that have healing proprieties. I had the chance to meet her during London Fashion Week in February 2020 – before everything went in lockdown. We shot her capsule ‘Skin Series’ in her bedroom with the beautiful dancer Kaivalya Brewerton.

The Fear of future: building a new fashion model in uncertainty

Fashion comes from a long journey. Starting as an activity only made for an elite, its democratisation led to an over-consumption and a massive waste that dramatically hurt the environment. Today, we have a clear picture of the social and ecological consequences of this system. Besides being the second most polluting industry globally- which is already a huge responsibility - it is also a field characterised by a lack of inclusivity, an unfair use of activism to serve marketing strategies, a deep cultural-appropriation problem, an overrated celebrity culture and a legendary superficiality nature.

Exploring Yannis Davy’s work through Tristan Réhel’s collection: ‘Losing Control’

'Losing control' as never been so relevant and meaningful than today. We are currently experiencing this notion in the deepest way. Even though this editorial was not created to highlight this uncontrolled context, this simple title can resonate with our actual lifestyle. When it comes to garment, the notion of 'losing control' drives us to a reflection on the role of clothes on human bodies.

An Alternative definition of ‘Haute Couture’ with Brielle

In this quest to breakdown the traditional system, I often look at the cities that we do not expect to be mentioned when speaking about the fashion industry. I explored this topic a while ago with an interview of '3 designers with an unexpected location'. We are used to look at specific countries when it comes to fashion design industry.

The danger of activism into the fashion industry

For a while, fashion didn't resonate with commitment or even activism. Nowadays under many reasons - the shift in social aspirations, the economic, environmental and social crisis - the fashion field can't be separated from the society overall.
