Fashion Chooses Diversity

Color and fashion are changing the way the world looks at women

Fashion is a form of expression, and that expression is best shared with people around the world. But what does that expression look like when such a broad range of diverse cultures are thrown into the picture? It looks amazing. For me, diversity is great when a black model opens an LV show because it demonstrates that diversity is really going places if a luxury brand has taken interest in honoring it.

Celebration of diversity in fashion in Western societies also demonstrates that color is winning in a world where women are made to feel that looking beautiful means always pertaining to change who you are by going against your society’s tide of celebrating freedom of fashion-expression for all, and have your freedoms slashed off – it’s the worst form of fashionable self-expression because the best kind only celebrates freedom and staying true to yourself, no matter what society in the world that is.

The atmosphere in fashion is always such that rail thin white models reflect Western society perfectly, so to have the concept of society tilt towards a lesser-explored territory is most certainly a great beginning. And that’s not all: some of the biggest names in the modelling word today belong to black models, like Chanel Iman, Joan Smalls and Jordan Dunn. Furthermore, this year an increasing number of fashion advertorials featured more colored models than before and NYFW had a sizable number of colored models walk the runway for its fall offering.

True, diversity is not always explored in a very satisfactory manner as magazine covers demonstrated this year by printing out a lesser number of colored models than before but the point remains that the victories for diversity are worth celebrating. Societies are built with unique concepts of their own but sometimes they clash over how they express themselves (in fashion) and in an environment like that, when colored women demonstrate they can be true to themselves and rise through challenges, it’s an inspiring moment, particularly for advanced societies, which celebrate freedom of expression in fashion.
