Last night BET aired a show about the lack of black models in the industry. Black women spend an estimated 20 billion dollars a year in fashion adn still we are not represented on the runways and in ads for designers. BET aired a special last night that discussed all of this in detail with guests such as Bethann Hardison , Iman , Tyson Beckford, and Naomi Campbell to name a few. European Vogue decided they would do something about this . I think as black women we need to speak out against this I know myself as an avid consumer lol , I contribute to a good bit of that 20 billion.
I also want to commend designers such as Kimora Lee Simmons and Sean Combs for utilizing the black model and showing that we come in all colors and variations .
Congrats to Noemie for this cover it looks gorgeous.
