It's a Vogue Idea

Italian Vogue

created a special "all black" issue. It was a project piloted by the late Franca Sozzani because of the lack of diversity in the fashion world. Loved my many, and hated by some, the issue received both praise and criticism.

I hope that at the very least it created a dialogue about inclusivity and euro-centric points of view, and as to why as a society we have to create "special editions" of magazines to bring attention to such important matters in our diverse culture. Will this solve the problem. No. But every little bit helps. And an open discourse may very well assist. -tM
