Naomi Campbell has never been shy to speak out about important issues, racial diversity within the fashion industry being one of particular significance.
Joining Michael Kors, who shared his views on the matter recently, the supermodel told Vogue.co.uk that the situation appears to be improving:
"I've seen a huge change this season already. Giorgio Armani used four models of colour in his show, and a model of colour opened his show, which is something that I haven't seen in a very long time. Jil Sander did; I'm naming names because this is a big improvement."
We couldn't be happier that the top designers are making the correct changes. But Naomi warns that we shouldn't believe that the problem is completely solved:
"We don't want this to be a trend; that designers begin using models of colour just because we are raising our voices. We hope they will keep doing it and we're going to keep raising our voices until they do. It's a long-term plan."
Long may it continue. Thoughts?
