Diversity on the runway has been a major theme this fashion month.
Now, H&M is proving they too are embracing diversity, by casting models of different ages, sizes, ethnicities and gender identities in their fall/winter 2016 Studio show in Paris.
"Size-sexy" model Ashley Graham, transgender models Hari Nef and Andreja Pejic and 65-year-old legend Pat Cleaveland were just a few of the heavy-hitters to storm the catwalk to a jam-packed house in Paris on Wednesday in looks that H&M says "expressed a woman's individuality, and the diversity of the female character."

"This collection is about the strength and beauty of women, and how we express that power through our style," says Ann-Sofie Johansson, H&M's creative advisor, in a press release. "I love the contrast of strong tailoring with handicraft touches of Swedish heritage and folklore."

And indeed the runway was filled with bohemian and western-inspired looks, with tailored pieces adding structure to the feminine silhouettes.
H&M's limited-edition Studio collection will be available in 200 stores, as well as online, starting Sept. 8.
