BBC Culture : The Transgender Model Breaking Boundaries
Last October, at the Louvre, a 23-year-old model called Krow Kian opened the Louis Vuitton spring/summer show, wearing a sleek grey suit with oversized jacket. Six months later, after many high-profile campaigns and covers, Krow was back on the Vuitton catwalk, to close the entire women’s autumn/winter season. The news, apart from those razor-sharp cheekbones and that clear-eyed gaze? Krow is a transgender man – the first ever on a womenswear catwalk.
