We Asked For More Diversity At NYFW, And Here's What Happened
By Cocktail Culture Staff

This season, HuffPost Lifestyle asked for more diversity at New York Fashion Week. We wanted NYFW to be an inclusive event for people of all skin tones, genders, sizes, shapes and personalities. To help in our effort, we launched the hashtag #NYFW4ALL to earmark any moment over the course of the week that helped to democratize the event. 


Over the past eight days, we have worked to highlight runway shows that feature more body diversity, the unique struggles that face models of color models and many other initiatives that worked to make fashion week more inclusive. 


Although the industry has a long way to go, we were pleasantly surprised by many of the positive changes we saw. Check out some of the best moments below. 


1. Not only did Ashley Graham partner with Canadian retailer Addition Elle to launch her own line of lingerie this summer, but during NYFW she modeled the collection alongside a number of other beautiful plus-size models.
