The Financial Times today launches Fashion Matters, a weekly newsletter on the intersection of business, culture, politics and style. 

The newsletter intends to shine a light on the $2tn fashion industry and explore how this sector has culturally influenced the music and entertainment industries, politics, climate policy, and those in the public eye. 

Fashion Matters will feature exclusive newsletter-only content on how the fashion and luxury industries operate and is designed for readers interested in clothing, branding, consumer culture and sustainability. 

FT fashion editor Lauren Indvik said: “Fashion Matters will give readers an exclusive, unvarnished opinion on the fashion industry, delivered in a frank and occasionally funny way. We know there is demand for more coverage on the business of fashion, on menswear, and how ESG intersects with fashion and business and we wanted to address these topics directly with our readers in a more intimate way."

Fashion Matters is edited by Indvik, with contributions from correspondents in France, Italy and China. Prior to joining the FT in 2020, she was the founding editor-in-chief of Vogue Business and previously reported on business and technology in New York. Indvik was awarded Fashion Journalist of the Year at the 2020 Press Awards.

Fashion Matters is available for FT subscribers and will be published every Thursday. Further information can be found here. Read more about all newsletters from the Financial Times here.
