However three brands were called out for bringing down this percentage: Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen’s brand The Row, New York-based label A Détacher and the UK’s Victoria Beckham.
“Victoria Beckham failed to adequately represent women of colour, casting only five non-white models in her 31-strong lineup (in other words, 16%),” the report states.
Beckham is no stranger to criticism over her model casting.
In 2015, journalist Piers Morgan was among those bemoaning the fact Beckham’s models were all “painfully thin”.
“They’re young, they’re thin, but that doesn’t mean they’re ill.
“Our casting director spoke to the [model] agencies, and we know that all our girls are healthy.
“People are mean on social media, whoever you are. It’s a shame people have to be that way,”
HuffPost UK has contacted Beckham for comment on the latest criticism and will update this piece upon her response.
