Naomi Campbell Urges Vogue to Launch African Edition
Campbell was visiting Nigeria's commercial capital, Lagos, when she said there was a need for better representation of the continent. “There should be a Vogue Africa,” she told Reuters in an interview. “We just had Vogue Arabia, it is the next progression, referring to the edition of the magazine aimed at a readership in the Middle East that launched last year. “Africa has never had the opportunity to be out there and their fabrics and their materials and their designs be accepted on the global platform … it shouldn’t be that way,” said the British-born Campbell.
Condé Nast International, which publishes Vogue, could not immediately be reached for comment.
