Vogue Italia Black Issue

The July issue of Vogue Italia features only black models has sparked controversy in both the fashion industry and popular culture. Franca Sozzani, editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia, created the “black issue” to draw attention to the lack of black models used in the fashion industry. The issue features over 100 pages of prominent black models such as Jourdan Dunn, Naomi Campbell, and Tyra Banks. This isn’t the first time Vogue has sparked racial controversy but, to Vogue’s credit, the controversies trigger discussion, which is always a good thing. posted on
