The Diversity Coalition, led by activist and former model Bethann Hardison, sent letters Thursday to respective governing bodies of fashion weeks in New York, London, Milan and Paris alleging racism on the runways.
The Council of Fashion Designers of America, the British Fashion Council, the Fédération Française de la Couture and the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana each received an unsigned letter that included the claim.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
