With more and more curve models and models of color walking the runway at major fashion shows every year, there’s no question that the fashion industry has improved in diversity and inclusivity. However, that doesn’t mean that the work is done. In an interview with Coveteur, Victoria’s Secret angelLais Ribeiroexplained that many black models are still being discriminated against and turned away from castings because of the color of their skin.
The 27-year-old model, who is from Brazil and is one of two black Victoria’s Secret angels (the other beingJasmine Tookes), revealed that she no longer models in Milan Fashion Week after two experiences with racism. After she was told twice that Milan had reaches its “quota” for black models and that she wouldn’t be allowed to walk, Ribeiro said that she stopped auditioning for the Italian fashion week.
“Of course [representation] has to be better every year, but it still has a ways to go,” Ribeiro said. “For example, I don’t go to Milan anymore.
