We have a Fashion student in need of your help

Good afternoon Beaumont Society members, 

My name is Eduardo Gil, I´m reaching you as a third-year Fashion Buying and Management student at the University of West London. Currently, I´m working on my final project in which the theme is about; The lack of fashionable and wider & larger sizes within the footwear market and the physical and mental consequences it has for transwoman and non-binary people.  
I´m contacting you guys because I believe your point of view on this research will provide rich and valuable information as out there´s a lack of academic data regarding this topic. Because of this, I´d like to contact with anyone – age ranged by University guidelines between 20-60 – that would like to express their opinion on this confidential questionary. 
Through a survey with 14 open-ended questions – which shouldn´t take more than 8-10 minutes – the participants will provide honest and true opinions on the topics mentioned below, helping me in this way to develop my research. 
  • Self-identification / Demographics / Foot size. 
  • Understanding the importance of Fashion within the different self-identification processes.  
  • Size inclusion strategies focused on apparel.
  • The lack of support from high-street retailers in providing a wide range of sizes. 
  • Understanding mental health issues in relation to the lack of fashion and footwear choices. 
  • Physical issues when not wearing your size. 
  • Transwoman & Non-binary shopping interests towards sustainability.
The data collected will be confidential and managed in a secure and responsible manner to protect participants personal information following ethical data principles and GDPR & University guidelines. In addition, the information acquired will be eliminated after the research has been presented to the academic court and course leaders.  
As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I´ve developed a big part of my University assignments about both communities and I take this project as the culmination of those. 
Please, feel free to ask me any questions you might have. I hope you guys would like to participate, it´d be much appreciated it 
In case you would like, I attached the link to have access to the Gmail survey.
