Here's an interesting post on Stereohyped about former model and agency owner Bethann Hardison even on Wednesday, January 23rd. It was the Out of Fashion Forum and it was meant to address the lack of opportunities for models of color in the fashion industry. Its a good read, and kudos for Ms Hardison for holding such a forum.
“They’re not going to look for as many black girls as they are white.
That’s just commonality. It’s a white man’s industry – if you decide to
be part of that you know you’re not going to be in the majority with
them. You expect that.”
