Discover how today’s fashion industry is challenging perceptions and championing alternative ideals of beauty on the catwalk, in advertising, editorial and behind the camera. Recent seasons have seen the most racially diverse, size diverse and gender-inclusive fashion shows in history.

In this exhibition, examine how fashion creatives are embracing inclusivity and body positivity, exploring themes such as size, gender, age, race and disability. Learn how the industry is calling into question existing practice, and why becoming more inclusive behind the scenes will ensure a genuine reappraisal of contemporary ideals of beauty. See pivotal looks from designers including Max Mara, Ferragamo, Ashish, Vivienne Westwood, Pam Hogg, Dries Van Noten and Jean Paul Gaultier, and hear from key influencers in the industry, from models and stylists to photographers, editors and educators.
