Black Models Mattered at Zac Posen's Fall 2016 Runway Show

Zac Posen made a big statement when he cast dozens black models to showcase more than 3/4 of the 48 looks at his Fall 2016 runway show. The stunning faces we saw included Aya Jones, Aamito Lagum, Cindy Bruna, Riley Montana, Grace Bol and Maria Borges.

Fashionista reports that Posen drew inspiration from an international source. "Posen was inspired by Princess Elizabeth of Toro, a Ugandan lawyer who became the first East African woman to be admitted to the English bar. She was also a successful model and covered American Vogue in 1968, and was briefly the foreign minister of Uganda in the 1970s."
