Those worried about the race balance of models in the fashion industry, turn your heads to PPQ. Designers Amy Molyneaux and Percy Parker have just staged the first-ever all-black show at London Fashion Week.
"During our castings for this show one gorgeous black girl after the other turned up and they just looked so amazing, we decided to snap up all of the best black girls for the show," Molyneaux told Grazia. "All the models today have been so great, calm, no tantrums, no hissy fits, it's been totally chilled."
Added Parker: "It’s not something we really considered. We just wanted to find the most beautiful models and those were the best ones."
Critics have been saying it's just a ploy for extra coverage, but we give the label props, and so does Michelle Williams, who saw the show front-row. "I don’t want to turn this into a race issue but I know this is what people are going to talk about," she said. "And it’s great that it’s happened here. I thought they were really regal."
