Naomi Campbell asked to create Vogue Africa
Supermodel Naomi Campbell invited Condé Nast International to create an African version of Vogue. During the fashion week in Nigeria, Campbell said that an African publication would help recognize the continent’s contribution to the global fashion industry, which is criticized for its lack of diversity.
“There must be Vogue Africa,” Naomi said, “after the launch of Vogue Arabia, the African edition would be the next progressive step, Africa could never break out of its continent, although their fabrics, materials and design are used all over the world, .
Publisher Condé Nast International at the moment has not commented on the supermodel’s proposal.
Naomi Campbell made a very good time with such a proposal. Over the past few years, the global fashion industry is often criticized for the fact that most of the models that participate in the shows and advertise the famous designers and the Fashion House are the owner of white leather.
“Now people understand that skin color does not determine your ability to do your job well or badly,” says Campbell. According to her, the fashion industry is already becoming more diverse, as evidenced by the appointment of Edward Enninfull as editor-in-chief of British Vogue in April 2017. Anninful, who was born in Ghana, became the first black editor in the history of Vogue and the first man appointed to this position.
