CAIRO - 16 September 2017: The first ever runway to include at least one model of color was last February's New York Fashion Week.
Elle Magazine wants to encourage this phenomenon of women in color and plus-sized models into the fashion industry. Therefore, they are going to join forces with YouTube and create a video series and panel event that promotes the industry's increased emphasis on inclusivity. The event or the move is called “Fashion for All.”
Elle.com will set up shop at the YouTube Space in New York Chelsea Market on Tuesday, to host a debate on the importance of changing faces and bodies of fashion.
This event will be moderated by Elle fashion director, Nikki Ogunnaike, Christian Siriano, Keke Palmer, models Precious Lee, Candice Huffine, and Andreja Pejić, and Planned Parenthood Director of Constituency Communications Alencia Johnson.
According to Elle.com, this 45-minute event will be live streamed on YouTube at 6:30 p.m. EST.
