Just saw an article in Elle magazine, and I would like to share with you the lines that caught my attention.
…”And yet we’re in a moment where fashion is celebrating individuality and having open conversations about racial diversity and gender fluidity. Those discussions are reflected in the casting. Trans model Hari Nef walked the Gucci runway in a show-stopping all red look. Creative Director Alessandro Michele also handed the reigns of the brand’s Snapchat to her so she could record her fashion week adventures.”…
YES! The changing is happening. New designers are coming, with innovation and a totally different set mind.
And here is the point: … “So are times changing? Slowly. An AW16 diversity report fromnotes that less than a quarter of all the models who walked this season were people of colour. That means that in all four cities combined, 75.25% of the models cast were white…”
As you can see we are still talking about colours, what to say about plus-sized and disabled ?? Yes, things are changing slowly but we need more.
My question is: – What do you suggest for us to make this change and integrate more diversity and equality in the fashion industry?? All comments are welcome.
Lets opening it to debate, I would love to hear your opinion, and maybe together we can find a “solution”.
