How do you feel the fashion industry needs to change?

The fashion industry changes all the time and that’s good. During the last few years the industry made some huge improvements regarding diversity. In my opinion, the next step is to do more to create absolute gender equality. For example, most top designers and photographers are male but female models are paid more than male models.
