I think a more practical option would be to just book other models.

it obviously is to some extend. if it wasn't, she would just book other models, right?

But on the the other hand the timeslot seems to be more important, otherwise she would've changed timeslots to accommodate the models.

But on the ... third hand, she is accomodating the models, by starting the show late and allowing them to be there for her show.

Anyway, after all this, some models from Dior are at Marant, lol.

We all know that Raf doesn't care for black models. He is reprehensible.

simons used black models for almost all of his own menswear collection (if you wanna check back: try ss03, ss04, ss05 to name but a few). and he did all the castings himself in his earlier years. calling somebody reprehensible (implication: racist) because he doesn't cast black models (which is, as stated in the other thread, not necessarily his fault but the casting directors', although i agree he could influence the casting choices if he wanted to) is, in my humble opinion, disrespectful and short sighted.

Where are the black models now? Its not like I'm pulling this assertion out of my @ss. Yes, he has used black models in the past but they are for the most part few and far between. He doesn't seem to care about diversity so I don't care about calling him out on it. His last two Dior shows have sent a clear message... "This label is for people with pale skin, no dark complexions wanted/needed."

What now? Does every show HAVE TO BOOK black models? Positive discrimination is as bad as negative discrimination.

That's such an unfair accusation, he had many black girls in his castings.

I read somewhere that Kristen McMenamy's daughter will walk the show.
