Diversity Report Redux:
Milan Is Falling Short
:

Comments

I'm so sadened by the low numbers. although, I must say it's an improvment from last season.

Sadly, Milan has been well-known for their hesitance to cast a diverse model lineup. It's really a shame, but bravo to Bottega Veneta for working on it,

It is truly disappointing that after so much discussion about the issue over the past year or so, that there is still so little progress.

Frankly, I find the argument that has been coming from the NY designers that there were not enough quality models of colour, a poor excuse.

It really is just dependent on what they see as 'quality'. They really need to be more specific when throwing about such an excuse. Were the minority models too short or too curvy for the clothing or did they have a poor walk?

To me, the argument sounds like a thinly veiled excuse for 'we don't find these women beautiful enough or worthy enough'.

However I really, really must commend shophound for keeping on this issue. Other publications have been talking the talk but you have really walked the walk by putting the numbers out there, and in so doing, forcing other, larger publications to take more notice as well.

I have linked to your post on NY Fashion Week on my own blog islandista and I will be writing a post about this as well.

Keep it up! :)

disappointing! let's hope for next season.

WHO THE FUCK CARES... WHOEVER IS THE PRETTIEST SHOULD MODEL, STOP LETTING THE LIBERAL AGENDA OF DIVERSITY RULE THE WORLD.
