Is Alaïa Making a Statement Featuring All Black Models?
Updated: Jul 3, 2020
With COVID-19 still affecting the fashion world, brands are finding new ways to share their collections. Just this morning, Alaia shared some behind the scenes shots of a presentation held for their Spring/Summer 2021 collection. But not only did the brand share their collection, they also showcased it on all Black Models. Why is this important? Well, while this is in the middle of COVID-19, a major Civil Rights movement, the Black Live Matter movement, is also underway and many brands are making statements of inclusivity and diversity from the board rooms to the runways. While Alaia has included models of color, the brand choosing ALL BLACK models makes a major statement in the fashion world.
Let us know what your thoughts are on their SS2021 Presentation? What are your thoughts on diversity and inclusivity in the fashion industry?
