DVF Demands Diversity

Unlike other runway shows that took place during New York Fashion Week, Diane Von Furstenberg was one of the few designers who embraced models of color.

Diane says she insists on having diversity on the runway saying "I insist. It’s my rule, and I always tell my casting agents. That’s it! Otherwise, I don’t hire them. I send everybody an e-mail right before Fashion Week to remind them to do it."

For her past show, 16 of the 43 looks were modeled by women of color, which is way above average.

And DVF hopes her way of doing things will catch on. She explains "It’s a habit. If you tell people it’s cool, they’ll do it. Changing human behavior takes a little while."

Sometimes a little too long, considering this is 2010, but we applaud Diane for leading the pack!
