I try and follow the fashion season as much as possible; living in New York helps drives that. But its always refreshing to a runaway full of beautiful black models, all ranges of brown. PPQ's spring line in my opinion a new way of mixing spring color and trends with modern African Tribal patterns with a hard edge adding leather jackets and spiky shoes. Sadly, I wish Black models wouldn't just pop up every once and a while; thanks to Chanel Iman though, who makes it a point to be in every show possible.
