RUNWAY LOVE: SHAHIDA PARIDES

Fashion designer Shahida Clayton, of women’s luxury resort and ready to wear clothing brand Shahida Parides, debuted her Fall/Winter 2017 collection on the runway during STYLE Fashion Week LA. As an immigrant—she's originally from India—as well as a Muslim woman, Shahida chose to utilize her runway as a platform to not only showcase the beauty and richness of cultural diversity, and celebrate the grace of all women despite their race, religion or gender identity, but also to manifest our need to unify as a people against injustice, intolerance and oppression.

Celebrities who took to the runway include: actress and celebrity DJ Caroline D’Amore with her two year old daughter Isabella Viking, Bollywood actresses Pooja Batra and Kalpana Pandit, transgender model and America’s Next Top Model contestant Quei Tann, Claudine Osgood, wife of former NFL star Kassim Osgood, and actress and Supermodel Angie Everhart.
