Bethann Hardison's Balance Diversity campaign is gaining steam--and some very famous advocates in Naomi Campbell and Iman, who spoke about fashion's lack of diversity on Good Morning America.
Earlier this week fashion activist Bethann Hardison (yes, that's on her Twitter bio) put out a call to action: she sent out letters to the governing fashion bodies in each major fashion city (New York, London, Milan, Paris) stating that it can "no longer be accepted" that designers "consistently use one or no models of color." The result of using an all-white model cast, she said, is "racism" regardless of the reasoning behind it. She went on to call out every offending designer. (See the full list here.) We caught up with the Jourdan Dunn, one of five models of color that walked Jason Wu's show yesterday, to get her take on Hardison's campaign.
