This New York Fashion Week Was Likely the Most Diverse Ever


This past February, New York Fashion Week recorded an achievement that will hopefully sound less and less like one as the industry continues to make progress: For the first time ever, every major presentation included at least one model of color. What’s more, by the time the Europe shows had finished up, it turned out that the Fall 2017 shows made up the best Fashion Month yet for models of color; the Fashion Spot’s biannual report found that overall, the 241 major shows stretching from New York to London to Paris to Milan were made up of 27.9 percent models of color—a noticeable increase from the previous two seasons’s 24.7 and 22.4 percents.
