With the likes of Iris Apfel, Vanessa Redgrave, Joan Didion, Ashley Graham and Iskra Lawrence gracing the fashion industry's most coveted fashion campaigns and magazines, it's never been more apparent that fashion has no age, and no size limit.

After all, fashion is a 'one size fits all' industry.

And, it appears this is a message that's being unapologetically displayed at New York Fashion Week this season, with some of the business' most famed fashion houses employing female models of all ages and waist sizes this season.

From the likes of Ryan Lobo and Ramon Martin at Tome to Tracy Reese's eponymous label, we take a look at the designer's championing diversity.
