MODELS OF DIVERSITY holds a fashion show at Oxford Fashion Week during The Oxford Style Show & Macmillan Clothes Extravaganza March 19, 2011 in Oxford Town Hall from 12noon - 4pm.

This event will produce catwalk shows throughout the day with at least 500 attendees, held in association with Macmillan Cancer Support, featuring an extravaganza selling vintage clothes to raise funds for the charity.

The Oxford Style Show provides a platform for exhibiting designers, and Models of Diversity will be the first non-designer group to be taking a runway show. As far as we know, this will be the only major Fashion Week that will send short, mature, plus-sized and/ or disabled models as well as models of all colours down the catwalk – we think this is very important and will create a big stir in the press. Fashion TV and Vogue.com will be covering the event.

Other designers exhibiting during the runway shows in the Oxford Style show include Miss Selfridge, French Connection, Reiss, Gap, Crew, L.K. Bennett, Fat Face, Aspire Style, Yelena Strelets, Oxford & Cherwell Valley College, and the Macmillan Clothes Extravaganza.

Models of Diversity is a London-based non-profit organization which advocates for more diversity in models, and demands that the fashion and marketing industries recognise the beauty in women and men of all races, ages, shapes, sizes and abilities. Our mission is to change the face of fashion and modeling! We are a campaign founded to stand for equal rights and opportunities within the modeling and fashion industry.
