Following the WHAT SHE SAID International Women’s Day special where guests were invited to #PressForProgress and explore the future of multi-discipline female connectivity, the talk series returns for its 11th edition with a panel of game-changing models setting the new agenda across a range of fields. The discussion will be chaired by inspirational co-founder of Female Narratives and model, Tijana Tamburic who will welcome model and mental health campaigner, Jada Sezer, transgender model and LGBTQ+ advocate, Maxim Magnus, model and actress with a passion for activism, Fola Evans-Akingbola and men’s knitwear MA graduate Jennifer Koch, who is re- spinning the ‘granny’ and 'housewife' stereotypes associated with knitwear. The evening will explore how they are all making waves by using modelling as their platform to go beyond conventional beauty standards, overcoming stereotypes and redefining public perceptions.
The WHAT SHE SAID talk series launched in 2016 at W London with legendary designer and icon Diane von Furstenberg and is part of a global initiative from W Hotels that brings passionate and progressive women together. The events provide powerful women with a stage to share their personal stories, as well as encourage the audience to join the conversation, voice their views, mix, mingle and network in W’s unrestrictive surroundings.
This year, W London has partnered with Female Narratives, a London-based creative agency and collective of almost 100 female freelancers, who will co-curate and produce each WHAT SHE SAID. Throughout the year, the discussions will address topics covering film, fashion, design, travel and technology and will welcome guest panellists to share their point of view and exciting real-life stories. This edition of
WHAT SHE SAID is equally co-curated by Linden Staub, a new modelling agency that stands against the grain of traditional agencies focusing on building careers and harnessing passions rather than ignoring them. Linden Staub is the mother agents to two of the evening’s panellists.
