Barney's New York Campaign Features Transgender Models

Barney's New York Campaign Stars Transgender Models: For its Spring 2014 campaign entitled "Brothers, Sisters, Sons, & Daughters," luxury retailer Barney's New York selected 17 transgender individuals to model spring collections by the likes of Alaia, Balenciaga, Saint Laurent, Givenchy, and Lanvin. The models, shot by Bruce Weber, will be showcased in a limited-edition portfolio and will star in a series of short films by the legendary fashion photographer, highlighting "both the struggles and triumphs a trans person may face in relation to their gender identity." For the campaign, Barney's partnered with the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) and the LGBT Community Center (The Center) "to help break stereotypes and build social acceptance of transgender people."
