Often times during international fashion weeks its always a thing of pride to see dark skinned models struts their stuff on the run way,but lately their has been a lack of “Black Models” at these fashion weeks…
Italian fashion house, Gucci teased their followers on Instagram with videos from their recent model castings in London and guess what? all nine of these models were black which is music to our ears…. In the videos, the models could be seen dancing and answering quirky questions like, “What’s your spirit animal?” and “What does it mean to have soul?”
The captions to these short videos were taken on January 26, 2017 in London for the brand’s pre-fall 2017 campaign. If gucci comes through with this it would be a bold step and the very first for the fashion power house.
You can find the videos on their Instagram page.
