Vogue Italia I applaud you

"Now a counterattack to the racism of the fashion industry is coming from an unlikely source: Vogue Italia. The July issue of the fearsomely cutting-edge quarterly will feature black models almost exclusively, shot by the photographer Steven Meisel."

Lets hope this will turn the tide rather than being a "novel" one-off. Either way I'm proud of Italian Vogue for trying to take a first step - and making the fact that they're doing so a normality.
