ON RACE AND RUNWAY RELEVANCE

One + Saint's massive New York breakout star, Kai Newman at Calvin Klein SS14.One + Saint's massive New York breakout star, Kai Newman at Calvin Klein SS14.

A great story behind the story that was the freshly concluded SS14 session of #NYFW was the response posted to the call to arms issued by Bethann Hardison and Iman in Eric Wilson's Aug 7th article in the NY Times. Titled "Fashion's Blind Spot", it was a redux of the brouhaha that exploded 5 years ago on the subject of black models in fashion, with the customary shifting of responsibility where clients blamed the agencies, and the agencies damned the clients for imposing a "quota" system on the use of "models of color".

What was new and what made the issue freshly relevant was Iman's use of the "B" word...as in boycott. “It feels to me like the times need a real hard line drawn like in the 1960s, by saying if you don’t use black models, then we boycott. If you engage the social media, trust me, it will hurt them in their pockets. If you take it out there, they will feel the uproar...” , Iman passionately stated in the article.
