Lately theres been a tendency of returning to the same non-white faces at the runway shows.

As the runway conversation around gender and body diversity continues, we wonder if the discussion surrounding models of colour got pushed into the corner somehow. Last October, Business of Fashion reported that out of the 3,875 models strutting down the runway during last September’s Fashion Month, only 797 were models of colour. The tendency for designers and casting directors to return to the same non-white faces shows upon the same sentiment. Whether casting directors, designers or model agencies are to blame for the thorough thin white girl cast, it has been argued that a quota regulation may be the only solution to equalise the race representation at the global fashion weeks. This New York Times article discusses it further.
