Designers casting more diverse models for their shows is refreshing and shows a welcome change towards representing groups of people who are not normally represented, especially in high-fashion settings. It is a very welcome change in the fashion industry and is slowly but steadily becoming commonplace. Hopefully, it truly becomes a normal part of the fashion industry.
