Fashion show to open with transgendered female model in support of diversity Friday 18 September 2015 PDF Print I have worked in the fashion industry for over twenty years and this would have been unheard of just a few years ago Transgender model Johanna Londinium will open the F.U.S.E show during London Fashion Week at the Montcalm Hotel on Sunday 20 September. The fashion industry influences people across all sections of society and has an important part to play in making the world a more inclusive place. Petra Truneckova, director of Bellus Events and the UK’s LGBT wedding expert, cast Johanna for the lead role: “We are all influenced by familiarity and I hope the show will help our audience and the fashion industry to be more accepting of the transgender community. I have worked in the fashion industry for over twenty years and this would have been unheard of just a few years ago. The world has changed but there is a long way to go.” The show will start with the appearance of the fascinating and sophisticated Londinium elegantly bodypainted by the leading body artist, Bobbi Bicker. Petra Truneckova commented: “It will be a creative and colourful opening that will certainly be a talking point.” Johanna Londinium, whose ambition is to represent the transgender community at a higher level and to a more mainstream audience commented on the fashion show: “The only way to educate in a positive way is if people are exposed to transgender people like me at events like the F.U.S.E show." Note to editors: Photographs of the event will be released first thing on Monday 21st September.
