According to the site, 63.1 percent of castings featured white models while 36.9 percent were nonwhite. The statistics are a slight improvement on New York’s Fall 2016 season, which was formerly considered the most racially diverse with 31.9 percent non-white models.

To calculate these averages, editors examined over 94 flagship shows and tallied 2,601 runway appearances. Although it’s an improvement over past fashion weeks and other global fashion weeks, the industry certainly has plenty of room to grow.
