Some interesting articles about race / ethnicity in the fashion world I've stumbled across in the last couple weeks:

NY Times Op-Ed column: High Fascism - John Galliano's recent tirade and subsequent firing from Dior and how it ties in with France's past relationship with facism. I have loved Galliano for years, and his recent scandal saddens me - but the author brings up some interesting points.

New York Magazine: Why Fashion Keeps Tripping Over Race - The use of black models and black face in high fashion. Taboo? The author delves into the history of ethnic models of the fashion world. A compelling read.
