Dancing Towards Greater Diversity at Fashion Week

Eden Miller was the first designer to show a plus size range at New York fashion week and I responded with some scepticism (or perhaps... restrained optimism would be more accurate). Well at Paris Fashion Week, designer Rick Owens decided to use an American college step team rather than models to showcase his clothes. His show, and his eschewment of the usual tall, skinny models, has won him considerable praise and and some decent press coverage too.

Read about it here... and then watch the video here...

So I'm upgrading my optimism levels from restrained to gentle.
