Designers Refused to Dress Ashley Graham for 'British Vogue' Cover
“The shoot was put together fairly last-minute and we are all very grateful to the people at Coach who, under the creative direction of Stuart Vevers, moved speedily to provide clothes for us that had to come from outside their sample range,” Alexandra wrote.
“[Coach was] enthusiastic about dressing a woman who is not a standard model…Sadly there were other houses that flatly refused to lend us their clothes,” she continued. “It seems strange to me that while the rest of the world is desperate for fashion to embrace broader definitions of physical beauty, some of our most famous fashion brands appear to be traveling in the opposite – and, in my opinion, unwise – direction,” Alexandra wrote.
