Join us on our adventure of becoming the most iconic diversity catwalk ever seen!
Diversity Fashion Week foundation is preparing the Winter Wonder Land fashion show for SS22/23 held on 28-29-30 October 2022.
By organizing an annual event, the foundation wants to break through the "standard" image of (ideal) beauty. Together with the team and sponsors we can create awareness and provide a platform for all kinds of talent.
Diversity in the fashion industry has grown exponentially in recent years, with a stronger focus on the representation of people of colour, plus size models and a range of sexual orientations and gender expressions. With this in mind, we think it is important to cultivate this growing change in the Fashion Industry, and make
Diversity Fashion Week not only diverse but inclusive – allowing all types of models to express themselves and offer a platform for all talents.
This is why we are launching our event 3 days long, to allow all people of all races, shapes and sizes to feel supported, as we seek to break through an industry full of stereotypes.
Just a little sneakpeek of the program on 28-29-30 October 2022.
