Fresh Off The Boat Is The First Sitcom In 20 Years To Feature An Asian-American Family! See The HIGHlarious Trailer HERE!

Filed under: TV NewsInspiration

Hooray for diversity!

For the first time since Margaret Cho's show was canceled in 1994, Asian-Americans will finally have representation on a network TV sitcom.

Fresh Off the Boat is an autobiographical comedy about the boyhood adventures of celebrity chef Eddie Huang. Set in the '90s, the ABC show features a Taiwanese-American family that leaves Washington D.C. to open up a steakhouse in the far more homogeneous city of Orlando, Florida.

Hashtag culture shock!

The trailer for the show is friggin' HIGHarious — ch-ch-check it out (above)!

Ha! It even has Randall Park from Veep! We love that dude!

ABC hasn't unveiled a Fresh Off the Boat's premiere date yet, but we sincerely hope a show this diverse finds success!

Wheelchair-Bound Model Gives The Runway A Spin At NYFW! Her Message Will Illuminate You!

A model in a wheelchair graces a runway at New York Fashion Week for the first time ever!!

This past month, the fashion world has been FULL of inspiration!

Instead of perpetuating the idea that models must be abnormally tall and skinny to represent major designers, more and more brands are buying into the idea of marketing directly to the consumer — by recruiting models of ALL shapes and sizes!

And during this year’s New York Fashion Week, history was made when Dr. Danielle Sheypuk, a model who’s been wheelchair-bound since age five due to muscular atrophy, modeled for the Carrie Hammer runway.

Danielle is the FIRST-EVER model in a wheelchair to grace a catwalk at NYFW! Wow!!

The career clinical psychologist and 2012’s Ms. Wheelchair New York talked about the significance of her appearance, saying:

“I feel like the industry has gotten more accepting of diversity but you never hear of a model in a wheelchair and it’s just ludicrous. I would like the whole spectrum of fashion designers to tune in, all the way up to high fashion like Tory Burch, Gucci and Louis Vuitton because, why not? Many of us have successful careers and we have money and we want to spend it and we want to look good.”

Preach!!

And the runway diversity didn't stop at Danielle — in fact, Hammer's ENTIRE runway was made up of "role models" instead of "fashion models"! Dr. Danielle was surrounded by CEOs, entrepreneurs, and a former Miss USA when she made her runway debut.

Advertising is clearly becoming increasingly saturated with “real" and diverse groups of people, as demonstrated by Diesel, Barneys, and MCM.

So why not take that positive sentiment to the runways??

For more of this model’s inspiring words, check out additional excerpts from her outstanding interview…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Rick Owens really stepped up his runway game this season — literally!

The designer recruited several U.S. step teams to display his S/S 2014 collection at Paris Fashion Week on Thursday, and they delivered not only an AH-Mazing performance but also diversity in MULTIPLE ways!!

Naomi and Iman, look what you guys have started!

The dancers stomped down the runway to the beat of their own drums celebrating race, body, and creative diversity in a move that has EVERYONE talking.

Do U think this is the beginning of the end for traditional catwalks, or was the performance just a one-time thing???
