Black Beauty... But Not So Beautiful in Fashion?

"The blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice", although the Fashion industry certainly does not have this way of thinking. I came across this great documentary on Sarah Young's blog and I definitely had to share this with all my followers. The documentary highlights that only 6% of Cat Walk models are Black, 6% are Asian, 1% are Latino and 87% are White. Plan and simple this is racism and the shocking thing is, the Fashion Industry gets away with it. Its about time we question... WHY?

Would love to get a debate started on this one, please leave your comments and thoughts below.
