Fashion should celebrate diversity: Michael Kors

London: Designer Michael Kors thinks that the modelling industry should celebrate diversity.

The 54-year-old American designer has revealed that he deliberately chooses girls with wide-ranging looks and ethnicities so that his shows do not become boring, reported Contactmusic.

"I like the idea of models that can be chameleons. I don`t like it when the models all look the same. To me it`s so incredibly boring to turn them into mannequins, it`s so much more interesting if we have different ages, ethnicities, body types, heights.

"We run the gamut from Frankie Rayder who`s in her late thirties and Karen Elson, to girls that are just starting out who are 17; we go from the fairest of the fair to the darkest complexions," he said.

His comments came in the wake of Naomi Campbell and Iman`s condemnation of the racist practises in the fashion industry.

Kors also believes it is important for a model to have the personality to match her strong look. PTI
