London Fashion Week is a few days away and volatile changes in the industry and economics are making the notoriously competitive fashion industry even harder. We asked a designer about her biggest challenges in her careers.
“The biggest challenge in my career is staying focus, keeping ahead in this fashion game and seeking innovative ways to expand”, says designer Mena Odi
Hoping to counteract the increasing stack of difficulties encountered by creatives and bringing more support for new and emerging designers as well as established designers is a series of free Industry talks that are taking place during London Fashion Week.
