WHITE SHIRT | Naomi Sims, just killing it in a white shirt with subtly feathered white trousers. She was the first black supermodel and the first African-American model to appear on a magazine cover in 1967. She was frustrated with the racial prejudice of agencies, so went straight to the photographers. Once she had booked one job, she sent copies of the work herself to advertising agencies with the phone number of a model friend Wilhemina who later started the agency by the same name. “Naomi was the first,” the designer Halston told The New York Times in 1974. “She was the great ambassador for all black people. She broke down all the social barriers.” #NaumHouse #WhiteShirt .
