How fashion helps us express who we are -- and what we stand for | Kaustav Dey
 
12:34
No one thinks twice about a woman wearing blue jeans in New York City -- but when Nobel laureate Malala wears them, it's a political act. Around the globe, individuality can be a crime, and clothing can be a form of protest. In a talk about the power of what we wear, Kaustav Dey examines how fashion gives us a nonverbal language of dissent and encourages us to embrace our authentic selves.

Fashion your future: Think more like a fashion designer | Suzi Vaughan | TEDxQUT

We live in times of unprecedented, disruptive change and uncertainty and most people find it challenging to thrive in those circumstances.

18:03

How data is driving the future of fashion | Steve Brown | TED Institute
 
09:47
The fashion industry is on the brink of a revolution. Today, designers have the latest trends at their fingertips with data gathered from Instagram feeds, runway shows and even changing rooms. But if the future of fashion design is dedicated to data does that mean the death of true creativity? Fashion buyer Steve Brown argues for the opposite: that with more efficient production cycles, designers are free to focus on what they love.

How companies predict fashion trends and kill individuality | Mahir Can Işik | TED Institute
 
08:17
Apparently, popularity can be predicted and companies are buying it. Increasingly, fashion brands are relying on trend forecasting agencies in order to create the “next big thing.” However, fashion buyer Mahir Can Işik says these predictions are putting creativity at the risk of irrelevance. (Currently, more than 12,000 brands get their predictions from the same agency.) Işik calls for a renaissance of self-expression and individuality in order to break free from the sterile suggestions of forecasters.

How I became an accidental fashion icon at 64 | Lyn Slater | TEDxMidAtlantic
 
11:42
It's not often a grandmother and university professor becomes an icon of style with a growing online Instagram and blog following of all ages. But that's exactly what Lyn Slater did, because she was, "having trouble finding a fashion blog or magazine that offered an urban, modern, intellectual aesthetic but also spoke to women who live what I call 'interesting but ordinary lives' in cities." And Lyn has a message to everyone who thinks they want fame and to be special: the real secret is to just be okay being you. Lyn Slater is a professor of social work, a cultural influencer, a model, a writer, partner, mother and grandmother. She started her blog, Accidental Icon, in September 2014 because she could not find a fashion blog or magazine that offered an urban, modern, intellectual aesthetic and also spoke to people who live “interesting but ordinary lives” in cities. People (like Lyn) who are not famous or celebrities but are smart, creative, thoughtful, engaged, socially responsible and most importantly clear and comfortable with who they are and reflect this in how they dress. At the age when many people retire, Lyn Slater has reinvented herself as an influencer of popular culture, fashion model, and global icon. Lyn’s rejection of age as a variable to be considered in how one dresses has resonated and her blog has fans from around the world. Her Instagram has over 250,000 followers, most of whom are young.

Are you Wearing your Future? | Manou Messmann | TEDxKEA
 
13:29
If you thought that clothes are superficial, you might change your mind after seeing this TED talk by Manou Messmann. You will not only see the clothes you wear in a new light - you will also understand the power of what your wear.

Manou Messmann has a Master's degree in communication and psychology - a combination she uses to produce the latest consumer knowledge. Manou established her company Manou.dk in 2014, from where she brings state of the art consumer know-how to the fashion industry.

The high cost of cheap clothing | Trisha Striker | TEDxTownsville
 
11:40
No one wants to support child, forced or sweatshop labour. Yet, how many of us actually know how and where our clothing is made? Let's use our buying power and our voices to change the direction the fashion and clothing industry is taking the world, and help end exploitation. Trisha was born in and spent the first sixteen years of her life in India. As a little girl, Trisha was always burdened by the stark differences in living standards between the ‘rich’ and ‘poor’ and the ill treatment of the most vulnerable in society. This burden only grew as she became more aware of the world and its many problems until finally, she decided to leave India in search of answers. Armed with the desire to understand the world and the determination to develop the knowledge and skills needed to be a part of the solution, she came to Australia in 2004. Trisha is passionate about culture, education, freedom and equality. She is also passionate about finding smart, inclusive, culturally sensitive and sustainable answers to big issues such as gender inequality, poverty, education and exploitation. It was in pursuit of these goals that she began studying Economics at James Cook University, a decision that continually challenges her and broadens her mind.

The Wardrobe To Die For | Lucy Siegle | TEDxSalford
 
17:59
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. An expose on the fashion industry written by the Observer's 'Ethical Living' columnist Lucy Siegle, examining the inhumane and environmentally devastating story behind the clothes we so casually buy and wear. Taking particular issue with our current mania for both big-name labels and cheap fashion, her talk sets an agenda for the urgent changes that can and need to be made by both the industry and the consumer. Far from outlining a future of drab, ethical clothing, Lucy Siegle believes that it is indeed possible to be an 'ethical fashionista', simply by being aware of how and where (and by whom) clothing is manufactured. Lucy Siegle is one of the UK’s most recognisable opinion-forming journalists on environmental issues. She has been an Observer columnist since 2004 and also contributes features and comment pieces. Her mission is to re-brand ecology and wider environmental issues as relevant and accessible and she launched the Observer Ethical Awards in 2005. Her work is underpinned by rigorous research and scientific debate (she does not believe in the healing power of crystals). After guest slots on BBC Breakfast, Newsnight and Live Earth, her playful authority was spotted by the makers of The One Show, BBC1 in June 2007 and she was commissioned to present five films on recycling. She quickly established herself as a regular reporter, and has now made countless topical, current affairs and eco related films for the show and appears regularly in studio. She is also a regular expert host for television including: The Money Programme for BBC News 24, UKTV Food, Sky News Sunrise, GMTV and Tonight with Trevor McDonald.

"Freedom of Fashion: Dress Codes and Sartorial Liberty" | Nathaniel Adams | TEDxJerseyCity
 
14:12
Dressing is a function as basic as eating or drinking and, in the right conditions, putting together an outfit can be as pleasurable and rewarding as cooking a good meal or mixing a good drink. We value our right to dress as we please and bristle at dress codes that tell us what we can and can’t wear. Yet in our increasingly globalized and multicultural world people’s sartorial choices and traditions come into conflict, and clothes become as potent a source of contention as words. From freeing the nipple to banning the burqa, the arguments over values, identity, equality, and liberty can revolve around clothes in a profound way. Can (and should) there be true sartorial liberty? Nathaniel Adams is a writer and menswear designer living in downtown Jersey City. He is the co-author, with photographer Rose Callahan, of I am Dandy: The Return of the Elegant Gentleman, and the co-founder, with Dr. Lee-Jon Ball, of the Secret Empire custom suiting firm. An expert on the topic of dandyism, Nathaniel has spoken at New York University, the Fashion Institute of Technology, Pratt Institute, the National Arts Club, and Disneyland. His has written for The New York Times, Harper’s Bazaar, Men’s Journal, The Rake, and The Chap, and is currently writing a biography of 19th-Century champagne magnate Charles Heidsieck as well as a second volume of I am Dandy.
