Time for Change.

I guess they took notice.  

In the past couple of months, leading up to New York FW, there has been a lot of talk about the lack of black faces gracing the fashion pages or walking the catwalks. It was obvious that some fashion designers tried to make a statement by having women of color in the Spring ’09 shows, but only having 1 or 2 black faces throughout an entire show that may contain 24 to 45 looks is still unacceptable.  

Women of African Descent make up a large portion of the customer base of beauty products, accessories, and attire in different prices ranges.  However, their numbers are disproportionate when it comes to catwalks, magazines and ad campaigns.

I would like to see more diversity within the fashion industry. With voices like Andre Leon Talley, editor-at-large at Vogue, designers Stephen Burrows and Tracy Reese and other  individuals who supports this industry like myself, it is only a matter of time. Hopefully sooner rather than later.
