Diversity doesn’t mean downmarket to Edward Enninful
Interviewed by The Guardian, the director of British Vogue is clear: diversity has nothing to do with the low-end.
“Diversity doesn’t mean downmarket – high fashion can be applied to all races, sizes, religions (…)
They said black girls don’t sell magazines, so I put Rihanna on the cover, and I styled her myself.”
Those who follow the up-market fashion magazines have not failed to see a certain trend going on at Vogue UK for two years: more and more afro models posing in the magazine. This is to the credit of Edward Enninful, at the helm of the magazine since 2017. It is not by chance that the very creative director of Vogue UK received in 2016 a distinction from the British Empire for his contribution to the promotion of diversity in fashion. ©Dzaleu.com
