LONDON, United Kingdom For designer Stella Jean, enough is enough. Its time to turn the page and demand fashion reform, she said. Last month, alongside Milan-based designer Edward Buchanan, Jean issued letters to Carlo Capasa, president of the Camera della Moda, and to the organisation's 14 executive members in what Jean described as an historical appeal to bring to the forefront for the first time in our history, the paradoxical taboo topic of racism in Italy and also to support Black designers who are still invisible in the business of Italian fashion.

In the latest episode of The BoF Podcast, Jean sat down with BoF Founder and Editor-in-Chief Imran Amed to share her personal history growing up the daughter of a Haitian mother and Italian father, discuss the systemic racism within Italys fashion sector and focus on fostering change.
