I’ve recently made a very honest, personal decision regarding my attendance at fashion events.

Does it represent people I care about and their work? If yes, then I’ll go.

Does it represent innovative, artistic, and especially inclusive ideals in fashion? If yes, then I might go.

Does it seek to create a feeling of elitism by actively excluding various voices on the basis of socioeconomic status or any other materialistic factor? If yes, then I refuse to “be seen” there.
