Italian Vogue's Black Issue
This explosive issue conceived by editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani, and shot by Steven Meisel from a roster of 18 new, established and former stars, the July 'black issue' sold out in Britain on arrival.
Vogue editor Franca Sozzani talked to reuters about the magazine’s incredibly successful “Black Issue.” And further quoted, “America ... is ready for a black president, so why are we not ready for a black model?”
The “black issue” was created to draw attention to the lack of black models used in the fashion industry according to the editor-in-chief. The issue features over 100 pages of prominent black models such as Jourdan Dunn, Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks and many more.
