September is fashion show month, and I noticed that fashion publications are increasingly paying attention to diversity and sincerity:
- Refinery29 rounds up the best natural hair moments from New York Fashion Week.
- Fashionista reports that “cool was out and sincerity was in“, and that “the most exciting shows came from designers who weren’t afraid to wear their hearts on their sleeves.”
- What Fashion Week is like for model and body positivity activist Hunter McGrady.
- Ten empowering moments where diversity ruled the runways.
- What Fashion Week is like for a curve model.
