Models of colour in Fashion
ILLUM FASHION SHOW, style, fashion and lack of Diversity
Two weeks ago I was at the Illum fashion show, the second one this year. The show was an amazing one hour of fashion inspiration on the latest trends, a chilled glass of white wine, water and some smoothies were served.
I love how they played with proportion and colour in the styling of the different outfits. There were different types of looks, from preppy, sport luxe to glam. I loved some of their looks and could see myself trying them out with what I already have in my wardrobe.
One thing that always capture my attention apart from fashion is the people wearing the clothes. Were there any women of colour walking the runway? Yes, but it was like a drop in the ocean. I would have loved to see a more diverse representation of models.
Let us see if things will change. On a fashion note though, feast your eyes on these images.
What is your opinion on the lack of diversity generally?
