It's true about the lack of ethnic models on the major runway shows now a days. Can someone tell me why the fashion industry decided to go backwards instead of moving forward? You would think with the world forever changing other medias would change along with it. I just don't get it??!!!
With different women of all shapes, sizes and ethnic backgrounds purchasing their clothing on a daily basis you would think they would start having models representing the different ethnic backgrounds showing up on various catwalks.
Hopefully, maybe the next wave of talented designers will pave the way for change because we certainly need someone to shake things up in the fashion industry. Showing that unity and change is a beautiful thing!!!!
