Nicki Minaj Slams Designers for Lack of Diversity at NYFW: ‘Designers Get Really Big Off Our Culture’
Nicki Minaj slayed New York Fashion Week over the weekend with her performance at Phillipp Plein’s Spring/Summer ‘18 fashion show. During her performance, the Queen Barbz slammed fashion designers for their lack of diversity on their runways.
However, she gave props to Phillipp Plein for being culturally inclusive with his clothing line.
“Thank you, Philipp Plein, for including our culture,” she said. “Designers get really big and really rich off of our culture, and then you don’t see a motherf---er that look anything like us in the front row half the time. So let’s make some noise for Philipp Plein tonight.”
Other performers who rocked Plein's “Good Gone Bad” show included Yo Gotti, 21 Savage and Rae Sremmurd. Rapper Future closed out the show with assistance from Teyana Taylor, who performed a steamy dance routine.
