Female Leaders in Art and Design: Flore Morton

Passion and talent are but some of the criteria that should be considered when looking for people to hire for the job. School of Fashion’s Flore Morton has more nuggets of wisdom to share.

Women pursuing careers have historically been made to feel overlooked or have their achievements minimized. Academy of Art University’s fashion school associate director begs to disagree.

When it comes to advocating for gender equality in art and design industries, women should make themselves heard. In fact, anyone who is in the fashion industry should be their own advocate, but especially so for women in art and design.

“If you’re a woman, don’t feel shy to say what you’ve achieved—write it down. And just ask for what you want. The worst thing you can have is a no.”

Flore Morton, Associate Director School of Fashion
