The III Edition of Ibiza Inclusion Fashion Day advocated the need for "real inclusion in all spheres"
Hï Ibiza hosted the third Edition of Inclusion Fashion Day on Friday May 19th. The world's first 100% inclusive runway, took place in front of a sold out audience, who witnessed the strength, work, and emotion with which the project team works daily to spread this message of inclusion to every corner of the world. The live performance by singer Rebeka Brown was the perfect finale to this emotional event.
People with different abilities, ages, races, and advocates for the trans and LGBTQ+ movements on the island, along with international model Krys Pasiecznik, curvy model Raquel Villadiego, and Ibiza native Ana Vide, among others, walked the runway.
The event’s godmother, Irene Villa, a journalist and psychologist, emphasised the importance of the presence of each and every one of them on the stage, as "with their support, this event once again becomes a symbol of inclusion, promoting employment integration and recognising the work and talent of each individual." The elite athlete also emphasised the need to advocate for "inclusion at all levels" and stressed the importance of working on the inclusion of people who "without functional diversity, deviate from conventional beauty standards."
The fashion brand Trinidades Ibiza opened this inclusive fashion event, in which Lina Rojas, Etikology, Origens Pomar, Alfonso Sánchez, students from the Escola D'art D'eivissa, Madrid-based designer José Perea, Oscuro Ibiza, and Delfina Bianco also participated, dressing more than 50 models.
This new edition at Hï Ibiza brought together fashion, live music, technology, avant-garde, and a lot of emotion while supporting the Ibiza Inclusion Fashion Day family.
The CEO’s of the III Edition of Ibiza Inclusion Fashion Day 2023, Enrique Villena and Emma Torres, emphasised the importance of including people with different abilities and characteristics in this runway and highlighted the beauty of each of the models who participated. They both stated that they will continue working to ensure that different communities and countries echo this demand, thanks to the Inclusion Tour, a series of fashion shows.
Yann Pissenem Ushuaïa Entertainment and The Night League CEO added “Our differences makes us unique”.
The gala was held in support of the Adapted Sports Association of Ibiza and Formentera (ADIIF), through the sale of tickets and virtual donations through the permanent account number provided by Inclusion Events.
