Inclusion is in style. The Givenchy Fall 2010 ad campaign will include a transsexual model via WWD.com. Riccardo Tisci, the brand's creative director, opted to cast transsexual model, Lea T., who is also his personal assistant and former fit model. And she looks incredible in the ads!
Tisci noted that including a transsexual model in his ads demonstrates the "masculine-feminine dichotomy" that epitomizes his brand.
I am thrilled to see this kind of inclusion, especially on the helm of the fashion industry embracing plus-size and ethnically diverse models as well. Fashion is for everyone. Bravo Givenchy!
What do you think of Givenchy's decision to include a transsexual model?
