Fashion Week kicked off in Australia just a few days ago, but all everyone's talking about rn is the Misha Collection show from Monday.
Because although the clothes were lovely and Bella Hadid looked fab leading the pack of models on the runway - people are actually pretty pissed off with the show.
It turns out that the show's finale soundtrack was that of Beyonce's 'Formation' - a song that's pretty much an anthem for powerful Black Women around the world - but there were absolutely no black models in the show.
It was Yahoo News who pointed out that people were questioning the song choice (since no black models were cast in the show) when IMG Models posted the finale video to instagram.
"No black models yet they're walking to a song about black empowerment? 🤔🤔🤔"
"How you gonna use black songs but not black people smh."
"Y'all catch on to our songs real quick, but still can't implement us into your fashion shows"
"Idk how blind you have to be to see what's wrong with that statement. the reason people complain is because there is a obvious be blatant lack of POC in the industry. there has NEVER, I repeat never, been a lack of white models in this industry. people complain because representation matters. that's really not too difficult of a concept."
"This song is an ode to powerful black women around the world, so where are the black women??"
"Why are there no women of color walking to Formation? This is insulting. I almost wonder if you guys did this on purpose because it's so problematic. You can't really be that clueless."
"Wow how clueless can you be. black song and no black models. disgraceful."
There's definitely a conversation to be had about the lack of diversity that still goes on in fashion - and perhaps this has brought attention to it fiiiinally. But what do you make of all this? Tweet us @sugarscape and let us know
