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 captures my attention apart from fashion is the people wearing the clothes. Were there black women/ 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?
