So Canadian designers Dsquared marched their models down the runway of Milan fashion week in “tribal inspired” outfits, hashtagging #dsquaw with every outfit picture they posted to instagram. These two designers ACTUALLY USED A SLUR TO DESCRIBE THEIR NEW LINE. A line full of native rip-offs and appropriation. I am livid.
Gemma Ward Returns to the Runway After 8 Year Absence
Gemma Ward, who ushered in the era of the “baby doll” models in 2004 along with Sasha Pivovarova and Lily Donaldson, returned to the catwalk—opening Prada’s Spring 2015 show today—after an 8-year break. The Aussie model who worked with every top designer from Prada to Balenciaga, bid adieu to fashion in 2006, to focus her energy on an acting career, appearing in films like “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” and “The Great Gatsby”. Earlier this year the 26-year old model also gave birth to a baby girl. Are the Aussie models having a major comeback? Abbey Lee also made a catwalk appearance during NYFW after taking a four-season break to pursue a film career.
