In the shadow of the monster that is “THE ALLLLL BLACK ISSUE OF ITALIAN VOGUE”, the current issue of Vogue(with Nicole Kidman on the cover) has a timely & relevant article on the race issue that is plaguing the fashion industry. I wasn’t going to read it cuz I was sure there would be a lot of things in it dispelling the fact of the lack of color AND THERE WERE JUST SOOO MANY WORDS, but I took a minute to stop being a douchebag & forced myself to read it. I must say that I was thorough pleased with the content. It really took a hard hitting look at real problems in this field. There were so many points and facts that were made that mirrored my own stance on the “white-out” in fashion.
I really believe that, as the article states, that it has been a tough past decade for models and that of course it’s REALLY tough for models of color. I believe that now that the dialogue has been established, what with legendary models of color Iman & Bethann Hardison holding forums, I just know we’re in the market for a revolution in the industry.
