Paris, Black Fashion Week

© MEDIATV PRESSE

It’s time for the second edition of Black Fashion Week here in Paris. The location: rue Cambon, just a few steps away from Chanel. The event highlights the cultural richness of the black diaspora. Its goal: to bring a wider audience to "black fashion" which is not always African, and show that diversity on the runway is possible and more importantly, beautiful! Diversity in the fashion world leaves something to be desired. Only 9 percent of models are Asian, and just 5 percent are black.
