On Sunday, Steven Tai looked to Sofia Coppola's 1999 film "The Virgin Suicides", and specifically how the director perceived the 1970s in the drama for his eponymous brand's line.

The Canadian designer used several models living with disfigurement for the presentation of fitted flared trouser suits, safari-like and floral jackets, ruffled skirts and looser outfits with tied rope detailing.

The models feature in a picture project by Tai, photographer Rankin and charity Changing Faces, which aims to challenge how beauty is viewed in the fashion industry with portraits of women with visible scars, conditions and disfigurements.

Several designers have been casting a wider range of models for their shows this season. At Temperley London, women ranging in age and profession walked the catwalk alongside professional models, while at New York Fashion Week, Rihanna's Savage X Fenty lingerie line show featured models of different sizes.
