Celebrities as designers

Kanye’s Madison Square Garden Yeezy Season 3 show turned heads as it broke the conventional rules of what a fashion show should be, Rihanna’s Puma showcase sold out as fast as her concerts and Kendall and Kylie Jenner too, are jumping on board as being designers of their own collection. The power of celebrity involvement must not be underestimated as these stars are making a mark in the fashion industry – who wouldn’t want to rock designer shades designed by the princess of pop?

Model diversity

Current runways have showcased variety in race, size and age more than ever before. Designers are using their model line-ups as a way to make a statement about their political and cultural views. Kanye West casted only coloured women in his Yeezy Season 3 showcasing the origins of streetwear while H&M recently casted women of age for their presentations.
