37. Des Fashionistas Noirs



It's very easy to forget the fact that fashion has an ongoing diversity problem. Of course, there are the June Ambroses and Naomi Campbells and Pat McGraths and Julia Sarr-Jamoises thrown in for good measure, but the bigger picture is actually quite startling once you dust off your specs or rub your eyes and take a closer look.

Do you think that other fashion sites should follow suit with sections celebrating fashion from "black people" only (I use quotations because I've never been a fan/user of the phrase, but it's the only one which illustrates my point)? Or do you think that there should be better diversity in fashion in general - such that street style blogs (for example) will give us something other than the Marant and Céline-wearing, pin-straight haired, Caucasian (often French) waif?*

Check out the Voguistas Black section of online Italian VOGUE via the link below:

*Nothing against Marant and Céline-wearing, pin-straight haired, Caucasian (often French) waifs, of course.
