[VIDEO] A Personal Take on the Fashion Industry and Disability

Feb 18, 2011
Tagged with:

According to the organization, Models for Diversity, a volunteer only group, discrimination in the modeling & fashion industry has been a problem since the 60’s when the beautiful but super skinny Twiggy first graced the catwalks. From that moment on the Industry set a standard… an unrealistic standard that is not in tune with the modern woman.

The Models for Diversity campaign is dedicated to raising awareness for models with various disabilities. See a “rant” by one of the members below and hear her take on models with disabilities in the fashion industry.

    In the mid 1990s, the Internet was still largely a research network populated by academics. But the strong appeal of this entirely new medium was made evident by the pioneering efforts of fashion’s early online entrants and the quick adoption by both independent and established fashion publishers, designers and visual artists soon followed.

    Fashions may vary considerably within a society according to age, social class, generation, occupation, and geography
    as well as over time. If, for example, an older person dresses
    according to the fashion of young people, he or she may look ridiculous
    in the eyes of both young and older people. The terms fashionista and fashion victim refer to someone who slavishly follows current fashions.
