in yet another astounding post on jezebel, the numbers from new york fashion week
were crunched to reveal the terribly skewed racial lines in the world of fashion.
"of the 142 shows out of the 184 that showed at mercedes benz fashion
week for spring/summer 2014*, there were 4637 looks.
of those close to 5,000 looks, around 80 percent
were modeled by white women."
it is shocking to think that it is 2013 and some designers are still
choosing to give such a limited view of who their "ideal" customer is.
when the world is so diverse and colorful, why just rely on
one type of look?
a designer who has been applauded for the diversity of her shows
is my personal favorite, diane von furstenberg, who seeks always to
glorify women- of all colors.
yet another reason why she's the best.
