Fashion Show Praised For Including Model Breastfeeding

The fashion industry has tried to become more inclusive on the runway, but we rarely see breastfeeding and pumping moms represented. So designer Rebecca Minkoff is doing her part to change that by including a breastfeeding mom model in her New York Fashion Week show.

Shots from Minkoff’s recent show show model Mara Martin breastfeeding her daughter against a background of magenta shoeboxes. She’s looking directly into the camera and propped on the table next to her are a purse and a bright pink breast pump. People are praising the designer for normalizing breastfeeding and showing some of the many layers of working moms.

"Such an incredible experience,” Martin shares on Instagram. “To be apart of a show that represented women of different sizes and ethnicities, while celebrating the working woman was such an honor.”
