Multi-million pound empires, A-list pals and gilded lifestyles… so why have so many of fashion’s brightest stars tragically taken their own lives?
..."Fashion designer Myriam Loda, founder of a new brand, Heroes Collective couldn’t agree more and believes the industry is incredibly tough on designers, especially commercially.
“There is a pressure to constantly come up with original designs and to stay ahead of everyone else,” says Myriam. “In the past, before the internet, we only did two seasonal collections a year and it would take three months for companies to see your designs and copy them.
“Nowadays it can take just 10 days to see your designs copied which gives you a very small window to make your designs profitable and means you need to start coming up with more ideas.
Myriam also believes the 24/7 working lifestyle of designers is to blame for compromising their mental health. “I left the fashion industry for 16 years because I found the lifestyle so pressurized and it’s only recently I’ve felt ready to come back,” she says.”
