In the recent years, the model industry has made some significant strides in reconstructing the imagery of what is considered beautiful and acceptable in the fashion industry. Fashion retailer Barney's New York has joined the bandwagon and is releasing a new Spring campaign featuring 17 Transgender models. The campaign, entitled "Brothers, Sisters, Sons and Daughters," is meant to promote awareness of transgender issues and includes photos, video and a short film.
Still, it is certainly refreshing to see this move from Barneys, a major player in the fashion retail world. We hope other major department stores will follow suit.
