Fashion designer casts only Asian models for landmark NYFW show

In a historic moment during New York Fashion Week, Claudia Li‘s Spring 2019 show featured an all Asian model cast. This is a monumental step forward in fashion’s diversity movement.

Li grew up in New Zealand where she was ‘surrounded by the mountains, fields of flowers and low-lying clouds,’ but she was still a minority in this vast sea of nature. Nor did she represent the stereotypical version of how western society views Asian people.

This fashion week marked Ralph Lauren’s 50th anniversary, and you can be sure the brand pulled out all the stops for it.
