Diane von Furstenberg Calls Out the Fashion Industry
Our favorite person, Diane von Furstenberg, penned a letter (along with Steven Kolb) urging the fashion industry to encourage diversity and healthier standards for models as we approach New York Fashion Week.
The letter reads:
Let’s remember that beauty is health and health is beauty. It is also important to remember that beauty is diversity and as an industry, we stand by these two principles. It is essential to remind ourselves of this as we spread the message to the world.
Both are also urging designers to stop using models under the age of 16 on the runway.
Go, you two! Let's see if designers actually listen this time. Read the entire letter here.
