California native Devanie Gobir's glowing cocoa-complexion immediately caught our attention
California native Devanie Gobir's glowing cocoa-complexion immediately caught our attention at Catherine Malandrino especially in this azur wrap dress, but it was the model's take on diversity in the fashion industry that stuck with us. "It's unfair because the bookings you get are based on the color of your skin. The lighter you are and the closer you are passing for a different race other than black, the more likely they are to book you; and the darker, almost the worst," Gobir shared with us backstage. On a brighter note, "I think it's important to not only pay attention when they get it wrong, but celebrate when a designer gets it right."
