“Diversity features in more profound ways, too. Fashion has, sadly, not always been quick to present us with a wide-ranging, all-encompassing sense of beauty at times barely recognizing ―let alone celebrating― different races and ethnicities. I am happy to report that things are finally changing for the better, with a broad sweep of young women from a variety of backgrounds appearing on the spring 2014 runways. There is simply no excuse for fashion to continue ignoring the gloriously heterogeneous makeup of the world. And while there are many, many wonderful things to wear and fall in love with in this issue, greater diversity is, if you ask me, the real fashion news to be thrilled about this season”. — Letter from the Editor, (US) VOGUE Magazine March 2014 | Anna Wintour.
