Hey guys, I'm currently doing the EPQ myself (with the AQA exam board) and I completely agree that it is really difficult to find a good project focus. Just remember not to overlap your question with your current studies!

Perhaps you could explore concepts of diversity in fashion, presentations of different ethnicities and style in music or fashion. Or, linking to media, explore the accuracy of images portrayed by the media in the fashion industry - and possibly relate the effect of a media-saturated society on the youth of today, perhaps linking to mental health issues and the socially unrealistic expectations.

Here's a couple of extra tips to try and help!

1) Make sure you structure it so that there is room for evaluation. Rather than having it entirely research based (e.g. What is the Marxist understanding of society) try and make it more evaluative so that you are assessing the application of the question (a better example would be: to what extent does the Marxist understanding of society appear plausible in 21st century Britain - also note the deal in this question).

2) Remember not to worry about the specifics - part of the EPQ mark scheme is about improvement, so don't worry about confining your title at this stage as it is expected to change and improve.

Oops.

At least the second person might benefit.

Wonder how the project went in the end. ☺
