Model Diversity at London Fashion week 2013

In uni at the minute we’re doing a project on Diversity in the fashion industry and I feel that it’s opening my eyes to new ideas of what fashion in the future could be.  In the past 20 years we’ve seen the rise of the supermodel; ‘heroine chic’ and size zero, and more recently the use of plus size models on the catwalk.

The models look happy and confident, which I think should be promoted more in the industry: regardless of shape/race/age/class.
