The second annual Derby Diversity Week fashion show brought diverse, local designers, milliners and fashion collaborators into the Derby spotlight.
This global fusion event was held on Tuesday, May 2, at Fourth Street Live, and featured African dancers, an aerialist and acrobatics along with a diverse group of local fashion designers, collaboratives and companies who support ethical, sustainable or fair trade practices.

Fashions were modeled by a diverse group of Heyman Talent models who were directed by Chad Broskey while DJ Stacey Broadway mixed global fusion music Broskey selected to highlight the show’s theme.
