Desigual’s new model reflects diversity in the fashion world

Desigual's new model: Alicia Borras, 70, was Miss Spain in 1965.

Desigual’s new model for its Spring-Summer 2016 Exotic Jeans campaign video is Alicia Borrás, 70, who was Miss Spain in 1965. She retired from the fashion runways 40 years ago but was recently convinced to do a campaign for the Barcelona-based brand, which she talks about in this video:

She is also featured in the campaign for Desigual’s home/living collection:Alicia-Borrás-Desigual-Home-Living-collection-SS2016

Borrás isn’t the oldest fashion model and not the first grey-haired model used by Desigual. Last fall, the company featured a grey-haired man modelling a shirt (below):

Desigual earlier featured a Canadian model, Chantelle Winnie, who has a skin condition known as vitiligo; she was Desigual’s brand ambassador last year.

Desigual has also featured two men kissing in a video and two women kissing. It’s an effort by Desigual to reflect diversity in the fashion world. Desigual’s slogan is La Vida es Chula (translated from Spanish: Life is Cool)!
