In my last posts we were talking about brands of color and now we will keep talking about it but let’s see what about the fashion industry. I would like to say what thinking top models such as Naomi Campbell and Iman. According to them the lack of racial diversity in the fashion industry is a serious problem that need to be fix it, the absence of people of color on the runways and photography help that girls of color think that they are not beautiful enough and acceptable. They also mention that the diversity that we have in the world has not show on the runways. The models, how we see are also aware about the problem and last year November 2013 Naomi Campbell and Iman launched a campaign to raise awareness of racism in the industry.
