Leomie Anderson has praised Moncler for their use of black models during their show at Paris Fashion Week.

Leomie’s tweet comes a week after she walked in Philip Plein’s S/S14 show, a show which featured only black models.
The 20-year-old walked the Moncler Gamme Rouge runway with a number of black models including Devanie Joy, Samantha Archibald and Michelene Auguste. The Premier model has always been open about racism in the fashion industry. In 2011, Leomie wrote an article for the Sunday Times revealing what it feels like to be a black fashion model.
The French company were praised by other guests at the show for their diverse cast of models.
