This is game-changing. In my 28 years working in magazines, I can categorically say this has NEVER happened. All of these mainstream fashion mags, including @elleuk, feature black women on the covers of their September issues (and we all know how important this issue is). More importantly they feature a hugely diverse (scrap that word, let’s say representative) mix of strong, powerful and successful women, all with something different and important to say.
I am so proud to be part of this shift. This is just the beginning, and we need to build on this, celebrating and nurturing more inclusive talent across our industry.
This is a joyful, impactful, inspiring moment nonetheless, and one we should collectively celebrate and recognise. #PowerofPrint
