Milan Runways Not Very Diverse

Milan Fashion Week wrapped up today, and the Shophound has continued tracking the model diversity quotient of shows over there as it did in New York. Ironically, runways in the nation that brought us an all-black Vogue were not only less diverse than New York's but disappointingly white:

3 major shows, Giorgio Armani, Marni and Jil Sander had no Black or Asian models at all.
Gucci and Prada both had only 1 black model. Of the ones we surveyed (and in all fairness, we can't break down each and every designer) the only show to impress us with diversity was Bottega Veneta with 4 Black models and 1 Asian.


Fendi, Versace, and Missoni all cast only one black model as well. The blogger also noted houses like Armani, Gucci, and Prada are big enough to get the girls that they want, so it's unlikely they were forced into using such white casts because they lost a battle with a show in a competing time slot. Paris starts tomorrow, so maybe we'll see a mix of girls there?
