Naomi says the Fashion Industry is Racist

naomi2

In an interview with German Vogue, Naomi Campbell talks about racism in the fashion industry.
“You know, the American president may be black, but as black woman, I am still an exception in this business. I always have to work harder to be treated equally…In the past, there were more opportunities for black models but the trend towards blond women has again become extreme. In magazines, on the catwalk, I see blond, blue-eyed models everywhere.” Source

Since I’m not in the industry I can’t say I truly understand. But from what I can see, I thought that the fashion industry was becoming more and more open to ‘different’ types of models. I guess I’m wrong.
