 It’s not secret people have complained about the lack of racial diversity in the modeling world, especially when it comes to big events like New York Fashion Week. Well this year it seems as though Gucci plans to shake up that thought patterns. Recently they have been uploading snippets of their Pre-Fall Auditions to their Instagram an it has been quite interesting. So far there has been 9 uploads an they have all been African American. From male’s to females rocking their natural hair. They ask them questions like “What does it mean to have soul,” and “What is your spirit animal”. A few reporters tried to get them to answer about why they have chosen such a selective group of people, particularly African Americans an Gucci have been mum on the subject. If this is any indication of how their fall line will look at their fashion show, it’s safe to safe they will gain alot of support.
