This Swimwear Brand Is Under Fire For Their Lack Of Diversity



US brand Solid & Striped shared a snap of their '#swimteam2018' on IG. Commenters were quick to point out the lack of diversity between the high profile models .

The campaign has a lack of different body shapes and Jourdan Dunn is the only black woman (out of 13) on the shoot.
Solid and Striped CEO and founder, Isaac Ross's statement  :
"[...] When I embarked on this project we reached out to a broad and diverse pool of talent. The women with whom we collaborated had a genuine interest in taking time out of their schedules to be a part of the team. The intention was never to exclude anyone. I'm genuinely sorry Swim Team failed to represent a more diverse group of women. I acknowledge the problem and we will do better."
