Emma began by telling the camera: "I want to get this conversation, this dialogue happening specifically within the fashion industry to ask the leading voices about gender equality."

Stella McCartney voiced her concerns about improving the messages that are sent out to women from the fashion industry.

While Jonathan Saunders told Watson that moves need to be made to ensure fashion bosses project the right image as well.

Emma herself also revealed high hopes that the industry is moving in the right direction. She said:

I have big hopes for gender equality in the fashion industry. I think it's really improving. I've seen some very positive steps towards equality in the industry. I think there's a lot of racism, I think there's a lot of sexism. I'd really really love to see a more diverse representation of women and men in any way that makes them feel empowered.

Bravo yet again, Emma, bravo. 👏 👏 👏
