In a recent post on the supermodel’s Instagram page, Naomi Campbell shared her thoughts on diversity in the staff at Condé Nast publication, British Vogue. Her caption read;

This is the staff photo of @britishvogue under the previous editor #AlexandraSchulman. Looking forward to an inclusive and diverse staff now that @edward_enninful is the editor ??????‍♀️??????let’s hear your thoughts ?

The issue of diversity in fashion has always been a hot topic; with race and sizes as well. However, there are some groundbreaking developments that are slowly changing the narrative on this subject.

In April, Ghanaian born Edward Enningful was confirmed as the new editor of British Vogue. Hopefully, in his reign, we get to see more variety.

    Edward Enningful will surely stick out like a sore thumb in the midst of these folks, just look at that picture again, zero diversity.

    The picture says it all. Not just in.fashion. It’s a joke Lots of loose talk on diversity and inclusion being bandied around when institutions who should lead are guilty.

      I’m telling you. I’m quite disappointed tbh. I thought there were more strides made. I mean it’s British Vogue!!! Britain with all its immigrant communities and all. Jeez. Hopeful about the future tho. The duo of Edward and Naomi will most certainly move things forward. Not just in terms of race. Gender, Sexuality, Religious inclusiveness too.

    That’s why Africa has to have our own kinda vogue and not kiss ass to these white mutherfckers.

    Invest in great quality mags and photoshoots. You can’t go cheap and compromise with vogue. You invest in quality you get ad money

    The white British like the white Americans generally feel the same about diversity, the Americans are just more open about it. This is exactly why there are so many non-white people who bleach, starve, wear coloured contacts etc. because “beauty” is basically what one race promotes to all others – the white aesthetic…

    Anyway, if you’re stupid enough to fall for it, you can only blame yourself…

    Welcome to United Kingdom. This is the picture you see in 95% of British companies and organisations in UK except healthcare where they need people to do their dirty jobs.
