Last week fashion activist in New York, London, Milan and Paris, urging them to make it unacceptable for designers to "consistently use one or no models of colour" on the catwalk, reigniting the debate about racism in the fashion industry.
Now model Jourdan Dunn has weighed in on the issue, saying that some designers treat diversity as a 'trend':
"[T]here was a season where ethnic models were being represented and then it went back to the same routine of just using one or none at all. It seems like [non-white models] are only cast when it's hot for one season and everyone jumps on board. It's a look." she told fashinista.com.
It's not the first time Jourdan has spoken out against discrimination on the catwalk. Earlier this year, on discovering she'd been dropped from the Dior show at Paris Couture week, she tweeted wryly: "I'm normally told I'm cancelled because I'm 'coloured' so being cancelled because off my boobs is a minor : )"
Speaking after walking in the Jason Wu show at NYFW, Jourdan expressed her support for Hardison's campaign, saying:
"I hope more people speak out, then hopefully people listen and realise it's not right and something needs to be done."
