In an editorial centred around the menswear industry, I wrote about dressing well and the impact it has on mental well-being. @photographybymiles shot some of London’s most prominent tailors, brands, writers, bloggers and content makers, and I spoke to them all about their individual stories. From struggles and experiences with depression, anxiety, body dysmorphia to why dressing well has helped them in an otherwise cutthroat industry.
What purpose does depression serve? What good does it do? Why does it have this particular effect? Why does it exist? What, ultimately, is depression anyway? Is it a personal experience that only you and you alone can truly understand? Or is it a blanket term for anyone going through a difficult time? I discuss why the conversation around depression is imperative to find our purpose.
