back in black
I was a huge fan of the all-black issue of Vogue Italia. And upon its release, I was perhaps over-confident that it symbolized a shift in fashion. But sadly, after the collectable issue was off stands, so were women of color in general. Thank goodness for i-D. The magazine features Chanel Iman, Sessilee Lopez, Arlenis Sosa Pena and Jourdan Dunn on the September cover. Hopefully, at some point women of color will be featured on the covers of magazines without the event seeming newsworthy. But for now, I want to promote i-D's September issue as much as possible.
