Jezebel crunched the numbers and determined that this season's New York Fashion Week was the least racially-diverse in years. Of the models featured in shows covered by, 84.8% were white. Rodarte, Vera Wang, and Donna Karan, among other labels, cast particularly one-note shows, while 3.1 Phillip Lim, Costello Tagliapietra, DVF, and Tracy Reese were among the designers whose shows reflected a little more diversity.
