We cheer Dazed’s recent article highlighting the psychological pressures suffered by fashion insiders with designers in focus.

The ever-increasing speed of fashion is frequently blamed for issues surrounding environmental sustainability but not as much for those of mental sustainability, and with that we cheer Dazed’s recent article highlighting the psychological pressures suffered by fashion insiders with designers in focus. Expected to tick both creative and financial boxes and beyond, designers are at a diverse high pressure end of expectation to deliver more and better, faster. Put in a recent context we have seen this reflected in the comeback of the fallen Galliano; the depart of Viktor & Rolf and Jean-Paul Gaultier from ready-to-wear; and the upswing of the ”pre” collections. In an industry that lives and breathes the current affairs of months ahead we are not alone feeling like some touch has been lost with the present. Here. /Ada Källgren
