The fashion-world abandoned the usual model parameters for appearance, like perfect skin and a standard body shape, a long time ago. We keep seeing more women and men with unusual and memorable looks appearing on runways and becoming new idols. All this happens because society is starting to appreciate individuality and personality, instead of stereotyped and standardized beauty.
Enlighten found some bright representatives of the fashion industry that are conquering the world right now.
