Creativity and Mental Health: How do we Support it within the Fashion Industry? 

The thriving fashion industry is a popular career path for many. While its exhilarating lifestyle, scope for creativity and magnetising environment are all positive attributes, the chaos and excitement can be a double-edged sword. The industry has had a long-standing curiosity for wellness practices; and at a time where the spotlight glares so brightly on prevalent mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, stress and burnout, how do we best protect its creative energy?

To align creative drive with psychological awareness, to question and reimagine how support can be provided, even whilst operating at the edge, we envisioned a bespoke knowledge hub, where clinical and academic information, best practice and innovative research can be accessed and shared. 

Our experts are chosen because they understand the intersection between Behavioural, Mental and Emotional Health when it relates to performance in high-pressure environments. Professor Carolyn Mair will define psychological concepts and how they manifest in the context of fashion, while experts like Dr Phil Hopley will explore means to prevent or treat mental ill-health, and eventually transform performance through mental wellbeing.

Today, more than ever before, the onus is on us all to take responsibility for our health. From the studio to the factory, the catwalk to the to the shop floor, the set to the executive suite, it is time to claim a space to hold courageous conversations and to challenge our perceptions as individuals and organisations.
