Paid Freelance Editor - This Generation
In 2015, This Generation was born to address the lack of information on how to get to where you want to go. Our aim is to develop a widely accessible and comprehensive view of the fashion industry. We believe this is one of the many steps for creating a more diverse incoming (this) generation.
In November 2018, we are relaunching as a media company with team members based worldwide. Our interviews feature a wide range of individuals: from those who are just starting out, to those who are more established; collectively they make up the industry we are in today.
