WHY FASHION INDUSTRY NEEDS EMPATHY
Empathy is perhaps the important factor that helps the working environment have understanding, caring, and civility. In the fashion industry, being independent in thinking but always knowing how to empathize with others will help us easily build relationships and achieve success.
CONTRIBUTE TO ELIMINATING PREJUDICE
Conflicting aesthetic preferences and ego can unintentionally create prejudice between individuals. Putting oneself in others' shoes and learning to recognize their strengths can bring a multi-dimensional perspective to design. Each person approaches ideas in a different way.
AN OPPORTUNITY TO RECREATE ONESELF
Empathizing with others also gives oneself the opportunity to integrate, develop, and accept more positive things. When the creative environment is civilized and healthy, each person has the best opportunity to express their design language.
EMPATHY TO ACCOMPANY
Many fashion brands have developed and gone further thanks to collaboration with colleagues and partners in the industry. For fashion students, empathy for each others' values will create mutual support, especially in difficult times such as graduation projects.
CONVENIENCE IN WORK
Empathy is applied not only in treating others but also in how we perceive creative ideas, empathize with customers and brands. This is an essential quality when we want to work in areas related to writing, marketing, styling, or images.
