For Tisci, it seemed like this decision was both that — a conscious choice — and an instinct. "There was a lot of talk this season in fashion [about designers not promoting diversity]," the designer told Style.com. "I was one of the persons who ended up not being touched by this. I discovered Joan Smalls, I discovered Maria [Borges]. I've always been supporting them. For me, I grew up in a family and I grew up in a culture, an education, that we are all the same." Tisci — preach! We're all looking forward to a time when true heterogeneity in fashion doesn't make the news anymore.
