Zendaya x Tommy - This is how you do inclusion
With no signs of slowing down, Tommy Hilfiger gave the reins to Zendaya to make sure he continued kicking goals after a killer collection with both Gigi Hadid and Lewis Hamilton.
The best part was that right as we transitioned out of Black History Month and into Women's History Month, actress, singer, and now, fashion designer, Zendaya showcased a euphoric and soulful collection with Tommy Hilfiger in celebration of diversity. The show opened with Toronto/Scarborough native Winnie Harlow (Woot!) and had a surprise appearance by Grace ‘mothereffin’ Jones!
An outspoken activist who uses her platform to shed light on important issues, Zendaya has repeatedly voiced the importance of the Black Lives Matter movement, as well as, racial representation in pop culture. Featuring all-Black female models of various sizes and ages, Zendaya's #TOMMYNOW collection was inspired by the 1973 Battle of Versailles show, which put American fashion on the global map.
“We’re paying homage to these women who changed our legacy and allowed for me and so many others to be here,” Zendaya shared in an interview with WWD. “Size inclusivity has been important to me always, if women in my family can’t all wear it, I don’t want to make it.”
