It takes a look at the ‘dying breed’ of black models and speaks to veteran runway models like Beverly Johnson, Tyra Banks, Pat Cleveland and more who talk on their experiences in the fashion industry and say ‘Black models are ambassadors representing far more than the physical grace of Black people; they also represent our pride.’
To buttress their point, the have recruited a new crop of black models who are not only making a statemented for Black skin, but also for the many shades that comes with it in a 10-page editorial. We get to see Chantelle Winnie (Winnie Harlow), Milan Dixon, Diandra Forrest, Samantha Archibald, Fatima Siad and Marquita Pring look fierce, model this Summer’s hottest trends and showcase the diversity of black skin.
