Leading fashion designer Tom Ford includes trans model in autumn fashion campaign.

A vocal advocate for LGBT visibility and participation in fashion, Ford highlights the diversity of female beauty in his 2014 autumn fashion advertisement campaign.

Dutch model Valentijin de Hingh will join names like Gigi Hadid and Yaya DaCosta in advertising the collection.

“The concept is individual style, which was the idea behind my first women’s show in New York, ” says Ford. “The campaign is focused on the personal, individual style of different types of women.”

Valentijin de Hingh recently participated in Bruce Weber’s spring campaign for Barneys with 16 other trans models.
