Today’s news.
A casual gracing of covers...

“The place in which I’ll fit will not exist until I make it.” — Happy Birthday, James Baldwin. (August 2, 1924 - December 1, 1987) 🖤 ™@philaprint

Quoted repost via @yasminrjh ➡️”Dear @Forbes THIS is what a REAL self-made entrepreneur looks like. While the mainstream seems hell-bent on celebrating the vapid, the charlatan and the vultures I'm going to pause for a moment to share some real news... @patmcgrathreal was often the only woman of colour that I used to see regularly featured in @britishvogue when I was growing up. It was usually in the society pages - photographed at dinners or events. Always dressed in black, minimalist and demure.

It wasn't till I (@yasminrjh )was reading about her involvement in launch of @armani cosmetics (2009?)(featuring the model Sasha Pivovarova) that I discovered just how influential Ms Mcgrath was.
She isn't just a make-up artist. She is a real life influencer. Long before social media was a thing she's been collaborating with designers on looks to send down the catwalk since before I was born. That 'nude' look everyone still goes for... yup you have her to thank for that... She's built a long lasting career in fashion the hard way. The right way.
Her cosmetics company has been valued at $1billion dollars after only 2 years of trading.

@oprah @vogue Mother Superior in every way. She’s bestowed an abundance of awakenings on generation after generation. And she’s mightier than ever. The living personification of grace. How lucky we are. When my tiny daughters were about to meet Oprah they asked me who she was, and I said “Well, she’s Queen of the world”. They’re 17 and 13 now, and they still fully approve of the title. Thank you O, for everything x Thandie and the Human Race

Congratulations @tolucoker 🌟⚡️💫🌟⚡️💫 #fashiondesigner “So, the unbelievable happened last night. All Praises to The Most High🙏🏽 I won THREE @itsplatform awards. The Vogue Talents Award, The Diesel Award and a new Award that Illy and Swatch announced on the night to partner on, to give me an opportunity of artistic residence in Shanghai and partner with me on creating a brand new art for coffee project. What an incredible surprise! 😭

I cannot explain how grateful and humbled I am by this experience. To be recognised not just for my design, but now for my artwork is such a milestone for me.

Thank you Barbara and the entire ITS team. You truly planted a seed by sharing your platform with me.

When I created my collection, I had a vision for unheard voices, untold stories, and unlearning stigmas and representations of Blackness to be given a space and a platform. Thank you for planting the seeds for me to do this in Italy, and now the opportunity to take it globally. Thank you for caring about sustainability and bringing back art, craftsmanship, meaningful conversation and multidisciplinary practice into fashion. Thank you for letting me be an artist and story teller and not just a designer. Thank you for honouring my community.
Thank you to each and every one of the jurors for choosing me, for opening your ears, hearts and minds to receive my message and stories, and for believing and trusting in my vision.

Thank you
Barbara and the @itsplatform team
And every single juror!!! To all the other incredible, talented and graceful finalists that I met, I’m so grateful to have met you all. There was so much incredible work and how amazing to share this experience with you all.

To all the incredible people I met who shared with me word of encouragement, support, advice and reassurance, thank you.
Like I said in one of my three speeches, my mother is FREAKING out and has already told half the neighbourhood. .
Eternally grateful and excited for the future. I cannot wait to start creating with you all ❤️🙏🏽 ™@tolucoker

​Happy Pride! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜The eternally fabulous, beautiful and jubilant Sylvester performing his disco classic "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)" in 1978. ​❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 .

At the London Mastada by Christo and wife Jeanne Claude with @victoriamahoney
We’re mesmerised 💞
If you’re in the UK go see it! KayX ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
Based on the trapezoid shapes of mastaba, an Arabic word for bench given to Egyptian tombs and seats found outside homes in ancient Mesopotamia, the temporary sculpture is the realisation of the artistic duo's shared dream of creating a floating version of a form that has fascinated them for half a century.

The London Mastaba, which is made of 7,506 painted barrels secured to scaffolding and anchored in the lake, was entirely self funded and is free to view by all. #mastada #christo #jeannclaude

Beautiful testimonies all over the news about #Windrush. 70 years ago today, the SS Empire Windrush docked in Tilbury - a historic moment in time - proud Caribbeans bringing their skills and culture to the UK. London’s identity is laced with the style, sounds and vibrancy from those islands. ThandieKay honours that diaspora, now and forever! X Thandie and Kay
