Marco Marco makes history, shows at New York Fashion Week with lineup of only trans models

Trans people are increasingly making their mark on an industry that is notoriously difficult to break. In 2018 alone, trans woman Paris Lees covered Vogue. Last week, Aaron Philip, a seventeen year old trans woman with cerebral palsy, was signed by Elite Modelling, a major modelling agency. And now, at New York Fashion Week, Marco Marco showed its newest collection using 34 trans models in a show "hailed as a groundbreaking moment in the fashion industry."

Laverne Cox, who started the hashtag #TransIsBeautiful three years ago to celebrate diversity and empower trans people, attended the runway show and posted a video of the models on the runway on her instagram:
