We like to keep tabs on the top models during New York Fashion Week to find out who sauntered down the most runways in a season. For Fall 2018, close to half of the top walkers were models of color (8 out of 19). While that’s a pretty good statistic, none of the models were plus-size, over 50 or transgender (supermodel and transgender advocate Teddy Quinlivan just missed the list by booking nine shows). With Milan and Paris still to come, we’re hoping this stat may change.

Out of the 82 shows and 2289 castings we examined, find out who racked up the most runway mileage at New York Fashion Week Fall 2018 above.
