Comme des Garçons Parisian show was one for the brand’s history books, and not just because the fantastic dresses on show were some of the most memorable to appear on a Paris catwalk in recent years. No, the show was momentous because it was the first time Creative Director Rei Kawakubo hired dark-skinned women to model her clothes in more than 20 years. It was a refreshing surprise to finally see inclusive casting in Kawakubo’s show. Four out of the 16 models who walked were black (a tremendous jump from 1 in over 20 years), with two black models getting the coveted spot of opening and closing the show. May this be the first diverse Comme show of many.
