Fashion Week: On the Runway

Although diversity in the world of fashion continues to be an infuriatingly endless battle, we have a bit of hope after seeing several striking Latinas grace various runways at Fashion Week, taking place now in New York City. Latina cover model Sessilee Lopez has been extremely busy, walking in shows for Marc Jacobs, Diane Von Furstenberg and Narciso Rodriguez to name a few. We also spotted new fashion darling Arlenis Sosa Peña and Brazilian stunner Gracie Carvalho. She's definitely one to watch. Here's a look at our favorite models working the runways this week, as they change the fashion world's perceptions of beauty one catwalk at a time.
