Johannes’ mission is to expand, enhance and experiment with fashion writing and criticism, which is why he founded Address – Journal for Fashion Criticism. He is course leader of MA Fashion Media Practice and Criticism as well as MA Fashion Cultures courses based at the London College of Fashion where he is working with the next wave of fashion critics, influencers and thinkers. To further his understanding of fashion criticism, Johannes is researching the topic as part of his PhD, also based at the London College of Fashion. When he has extra time, he writes about fashion for a number of international fashion publications.

Aïcha studied Fashion Design as an undergraduate at the University of the Arts Berlin, where she explored the narrative and critical potential of fashion. This led her to pursue an MA in Design, which allowed her to reflect on her practice and its social implications. Aïcha’s focus expanded to include alternative design approaches and new expressions for textiles and fashion. Her motivation is to help to redefine the roles that the industry offers. Fascinated by the complexity of the fashion system, she hopes for a future where more people can engage with fashion and clothing without having to perpetuate the system’s ethical failures.
