Men’s New York Fashion Week (NYFW) occurred this week and was met with rave reviews…The Huffington Post reports, over 90 models had appeared throughout the Men’s NYFW.

My runway is reality.” However, Snyder’s reality is not shared with the NYFW for women… That particular fashion week is going on its 20-plus year stretch and lacks terribly in hiring models of color.

The percentage became significantly lower for the Spring 2015 shows and London, Milan and Paris’s Fashion Weeks.
