Speaking of The cup, the point of sale also recently reflected on the evolution of diversity on the track. For example, in the 1970s there was a clash between European designers and American designers over who was running the industry, and from these battles emerged the first models. Nov. On December 28, 1973, there was a fashion show that was allegedly a showcase and fundraiser for the Palace of Versailles, but “in reality, everything was ego,” notes the Cut.
Of the 36 American “Battle of Versailles” models, only ten were black, but they exhibited “an attitude, something no one had ever delivered in traditionally sultry and snoozy fashion presentations.”
Pat Cleveland was one of those models, but as The Cut recalls, there are more black women who have paved the runways in fashion. As a result, the outlet named 10 people who should be household names, including Tyra Banks, Beverly Johnson, Beverly Peele, Deborah Shaw, Karen Alexander, Kara Young, Lana Ogilvie, Kimora Lee Simmons, and none other than the editor. in chief co-founder of The Glow Up, Véronique Webb.
