donbleek.com is all about diversity in the fashion industry and will continue to post models of all races and ethnicities; especially models of color. Personally, I feel like it is a lack of models of color in the fashion industry. Black male models doesn’t get the same recognition that White male models gets. So, our website try our best to give Black male models a platform.
During the inaugural New York Fashion Week: Men’s, five noticeable models of color walked the runways for various shows. Take a look below and on the next few pages to see Michael Lockley, Sheani Gist, Torin Verdone, Hamid Onifade, and Adonis Bosso walking the runways.
