Do Diversity Reports In Fashion Actually Work? - Refinery29

In addition to the CFDA's findings, editorial platform theFashionSpot releases a more in-depth diversity report each season, for runways and ad campaigns. Each season, theFashionSpot calculates how many models of color, plus-size/curvy models, models of different genders, ages, and abilities walked the runways of New York, Paris, London, and Milan, and contrast the data with the season(s) before. From spring 2015 to spring 2019, the percentage of models of color on the combined runways has risen 19%, from 17% to 36%. Yet still, the headline "[Insert Season Here] Was The Most Diverse Ever" manages to supersede any semblance of actual, lasting progress. It means we're applauding those who hire even just one or two more Black or trans models than the season before, reaching a new — and arbitrary — bar of "ever".
