Tanya Gold: Fashion, at its best, can allow men and women to express themselves though clothes. It allows people to reflect their own moods, it can be a lot of fun, and obviously an industry such as fashion needs to be marketed. But I have quite serious objections to the way the modern fashion industry conducts itself.
Inácio Ribeiro: The modern fashion industry is manic, yes. There are so many collections, so many brands, and you have a high-level demand for novelty that pushes the boundaries, almost on a monthly basis. We're living in a world of extremes. I don't think there's ever been more of a dichotomy between what you see on the catwalk and what you see in a showroom. So brands can use the catwalk just for experimentation and playing with extremes. We're so saturated with information, with stimulation, and anything that is not extreme seems to get lost and won't capture our attention.
TG: I think an extreme piece of clothing or an extreme idea is important, but when we're talking about women's bodies, we're moving into an area that is unhealthy. I went to the couture collections last year in Paris, and when I saw how thin the models were, and also how poor their complexions were, I thought they looked ill. I think it's a real shame that an industry that could potentially do so much to empower women and enrich their lives and make them happy is trapped in this sort of [extreme] cycle. It angers me that the typical piece of fashion advertising will feature a girl who is terribly thin compared with the average woman, and it angers me that she will be airbrushed. I think it's dangerous. When you look at a piece of advertising, it has very little to do with the way that you actually look.
