Fashion is fast becoming one of the most progressive and fast moving segments in society. Designers have become more aware and have also begun to take measures to improve the environment. Putting more thought into sustainability, designers and brands like Stella McCartney and Balenciaga have stopped using fur and animal skins and have even created funds for the environment. 

But taking idea of progression a notch higher, the first openly transgender creator presented her work at the New York Fashion Week. Pierre Davis made her debut on Fashion Week and further shook up the event that also previously featured transgender models. She made NYFW history with her brand No Sesso, which opened with a parade of outfits that were beautiful and whimsical.

Davis is a trans woman who was born with the attributes of a man. The designer hopes that her works will inspire more people to keep the community in mind. She said that she wanted people to "realise not everything is just about aesthetics or commerce. it is also about humanity." The designer also believes that everybody should be given a chance irrespective of their identity. "The playing field isn't level in the world and it is even more difficult in fashion," she added. 
For many years, trans models have been walking the ramp for NYFW and there were even exclusive shows that had only trans models. Clearly, the world is transforming, and how!
