This is a new day, and I am happy to report that the 2010 A/W Women's RTW Fashion Week runways around the world displayed more ethnic diversity than ever before! I’m not saying that there is racism involved within the modeling industry, but I do think that all women are beautiful and that needs to be translated on the runways. With economies growing in places like Africa, China and South America, the face of fashion needs to reflect the women who are buying high end designs.

In the past, European models dominated the runways. Don’t get me wrong, these women are beautiful, but it is nice to know that the fashion industry is taking notice and realizing that unique and extraordinary faces don’t just come from Europe! I just hope that the next step will be to see more women of color in fashion editorials and cosmetics campaigns. Anything is possible because it’s Obama time…time for change!
