Normalcy is the word for white models on the catwalk, from Kendall Jenner to Gigi Hadid and Cara Delavingne, it’s no surprise to see white-skinned beauties adorn the fashion week stage.
Asides the cute hats which sat prettily on the models, something intriguing caught our attention at the Chanel runway show during the Paris Fashion Week. Karl Lagerfeld, head designer and creative director, Chanel, placed in the mix of models on the catwalk, more than twenty models of colour.
With the introduction of a multicultural model cast at the Chanel runway, we are optimistic for next season as this heralds the promise of a bigger future on the catwalk for models of colour.
From Korean beauty Hyun Ji Shin to Midwesterner Alanna Arrington, we’re keeping our fingers crossed!
