Diversity among the fashion industry has been an issue for a while now. We at Fashom are happy to see someone in the fashion world take on diversity head on. Los Angles based model Deddeh Howard recreated some of the most well-known fashion advertisements made famous top models at the moment such as Michelle Williams for Louis Vuitton, Kendall Jenner for Calvin Klein and Candice Swanepoel for Victoria’s Secret. Howard called the series of photographs“Black Mirror”.
Deddeh Howard had this to say about diversity, “In a time where black people too often are in the media for being underrepresented at important events such as the Oscars, or make headlines for being targeted by the police, I felt it was time to do something positive and inspiring about my race.”
“We live in a globalized world with nowadays many interracial couples producing mixed babies. Why can’t the big brands not embrace our diversity more and give all of us visibility?” Howard said.
Let’s change the fashion world & start encouraging diversity!
