our commitments

Giving a sense of opportunity...We wanted to have a very inclusive community, participating in fashion should be a form of hope through getting together and collaborating.
STEVE NGUYEN
Editor in chief
We want to connect students who have a vision of something they want to create with a professional platform so that they can access the industry and showcase their work; interacting in a different way than they can on their own.
SAMANTHA CASS
Creative Director

FUTURE STEPS FOR ACTION AND ACCOUNTABILITY

As we relaunch our digital platform and commence content production for the 2020-2021 term, we recognize our position within an industry that actively profits from Black bodies under the guise of diversity and inclusion, while jeopardizing and silencing Black creatives through lack of representation and mistreatment. We acknowledge that, in participating in the fashion industry, we have profited from this as well. It is now our responsibility to take affirmative action towards dismantling the systemic racism that is present in Toronto, the grounds upon which we operate, and elsewhere.

In effort to erase performative activism, our actions are structure to be long term goals which we will continue to commit ourselves to meeting. The following is a part of a collective agreement that StyleCircle and its contributors must all take initiative to acknowledge. This is an evolving list as we continue to recommit ourselves to amplifying Black and marginalized voices and supporting Black creatives.

1.

QBIPOC+ creatives will be prioritized when seeking opportunities through all assets of the publication and freelance contributors for submissions.

2.

We will hold accountability for all contributors to be responsive to initiatives upheld by the StyleCircle platform.

3.

We will develop safe spaces that encourage conversations which includes, but is not limited to, racism, decolonization, inclusion, as well as promoting transparency.

4.

We will utilize this platform to highlight Black-owned businesses, brands, artists as well as sharing donation resources and petitions to actively participate

We recognize the Black Lives Matter movement as one whose significance cannot go unnoticed. What needs to be done is tangible action that supports the community. The most effective forms of redistributing wealth and taking stance in solidarity is to support local Black-owned businesses, brands and artists. Help us in giving them opportunity and a platform to let their voices be heard.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

The land where StyleCircle operates has an important history, present and future that we need to understand and acknowledge. This land is called Turtle Island, and it is originally the home of many Indigenous peoples. It is the unceded traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, the Haudenosaunee, the Wendat and the Mississaugas of the New Credit. We acknowledge and respect these nations as the past, present, and future true inhabitant people of this land. What is today known as Toronto is located in the Dish With One Spoon Territory. The Dish with One Spoon is a treaty between the Anishinaabe, Mississaugas and Haudenosaunee that bound them to share the territory and protect the land. We want to recognize that we are sharing this land on which Toronto sits with each other.
