Survey Results: Diversity On The Runway

In February 2019 we (along with Own Your I Am) surveyed 62 models of color from fashion weeks in New York, Milan, London, and Paris about their experiences as runway models backstage and in fashion.

Who were the 62 models we surveyed:

87.1% Female

11.3% Male

1.6% non-binary

71% Black
10% Hispanic
12% Asian
2% Arab
6% Mixed

The Results:

Models of color this season, although more represented than ever, did not feel welcomed and invited at castings and backstage. There is a lot of work still to be done in the Fashion Industry.
