New York Fashion Week is not exactly known for their inclusivity or progressive casting. In fact, the sliver of plus-size models who make up castings is getting smaller and smaller — at a time when we need diversity the most. But there are a few key designers who offer a glimmer of hope for inclusivity in the industry, like Chromat.
Chromat is leading the charge towards a more accepting industry. And Friday, they made a big statement for the cause in one of the most diverse runway shows NYFW has ever seen.
Chromat's mission is to "design empowering garments for all bodies," and their SS19 runway show, as well as the t-shirt itself, hit the nail on the head.
