Vogue September 2015 issue cover star – Emma Watson – continues her HeForShe campaign (and general amazingness), quizzing fashion designers on gender equality for a new Vogue video. See it here…

United Nations Women Goodwill Ambassador, actress and Vogue cover star Emma Watson, has quizzed a handful of influential fashion designers for a special video. The 25-year-old HeForShe leader questions how the fashion industry can assist with the mission to promote gender equality, questioning Stella McCartney, Jonathan Saunders, Erdem Moralioglu and Bella Freud.

Watson asks the leading fashion creatives what their "hopes and dreams" for gender equality are, as well as asking what part the fashion industry plays in the issue as a whole...

Stella McCartney argues that the fashion industry needs "to give a better message to women of all ages, all sizes and all nationalities. We need to allow women to feel comfortable with who they are." Whilst Bella Freud says that equality between the sexes "is about fair pay, about equal pay," and that there should be "maternity leave for men as well as women." And Jonathan Saunders declares that he is "absolutely a feminist."

Take a look at the Kathryn Ferguson-directed film, which launched on the Vogue video channel today (August 6) above now. What do you think?
