Designers Are Striving For Diverse Runways
After Christian Siriano dropped a hint about his diverse runway, we could hardly wait to attend the show. When women of different races and sizes graced the catwalk, we heard excited voices whisper, "Yes!" and people clap passionately. Then, Jenna Lyons presented a J.Crew collection on friends of the brand, rather than supermodels, and Opening Ceremony included a mix of both in its runway show, enlisting Natasha Lyonne and Whoopi Goldberg. Sandy Liang and Tracy Reese also followed suit at their own presentations.
