Bucking Trends - Spring/Summer 2014

American Vogue embraces the Spring/Summer 2014's free-spirited iconoclastic approach to dressing with an eclectic mix of the season's top catwalkers. Photographer Craig McDean trains his lens on a motley crew of established models and rising stars. Industry veterans Suvi Koponen, Karlie Kloss, and Joan Smalls are flanked by red hot newcomers Imaan Hammam, Vanessa Axente, Sam Rollinson, and Amanda Murphy decked out in pieces from the awe-inspiring Spring/Summer 2014 collections of Prada, Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Calvin Klein, Oscar de la Renta, and Céline styled by Fashion Editor Grace Coddington. The Spring/Summer 2014 runways offered a wonderful procession of diversity both in terms of racial and age demographics. Models in their mid-to-late twenties including Amanda Murphy, Drake Burnette, Amanda Murphy, Ava Smith, and Natalia Siodmiak imbued the Spring/Summer 2014 runways with a womanly sophistication that is borne through life experience. Black and Asian models were granted access to the runways that mattered most with Calvin Klein including five black models in its cast, and Céline which had never previously featured a model of colour on its runway opening the flood gates with the inclusion of four black models and one model of Asian descent in its line-up. IMA looks forward to witnessing a level playing field at the Fall/Winter 2014 collections in February where Beauty in all of it's incarnations is celebrated and embraced.
