We are delighted to be able to host another beautiful event this year.
Consequently we proudly present this year's edition of our fashion show series:
Diversity Fashion Week Switzerland
The main purpose of the event is to say no to racism and to create awareness about the need to come together and unite as one.
In the wake of Black Lives Matter people have been condemning racism in different ways, including through holding protests.
Human rights are not things you put on the table for people to enjoy.
These are things You fight for and then you protect.
- Dr. Wangari Maathai, Nobel peace prize winner
Black people's lives are human rights.
We cannot keep condemning others as a way of stopping the vice. Pointing fingers at others and expressing anger will unfortunately not end racism. Unity is required to achieve a world free of racism and prejudice. After all, an eye for an eye makes the world go blind.
In this spirit the models chosen come from a myriad of cultural backgrounds. Diversity is imperative to our vision and supporting our rich cultural community in Switzerland and abroad is an integral part of our goal.
We are more than just a fashion show, we are a movement!
