Minority Report, Vol.2

Long gone are the days of Claudia, Cindy, Linda and George Michael videos…nowadays the runways are not only nameless, they are colorless too. Created so for when you actually see a minority on the runway, you know their name, The Minority Report is back! For our second edition–we give you three Parlour favorites reppin’ England, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic with style & grace (well, maybe not the third one so much).
