Another day, another idea for a Pinterest board!
As an increasing number of black models are being used for the beauty and fashion features in the mainstream British glossy magazines, I have decided to capture these images over the remainder of the year. Follow this board here!
As well as featuring vetran supermodels such as Naomi Campbell and newer faces such as Leomie Anderson, I will also pin the press features that depict a positive representation of the modern Black British woman – women like myself, who are educated, professional and wish to make a valuable contribution to the British society – as unfortunatly such coverage is still few and far between.
I have added this pin to my board which was featured recently in InStyle magazine’s SS12 Get Smart Workwear Special supplement. ‘How real women Get Smart’ was the title of the feature and it showcased 4 professional women and their working wardrobes. It was great to see Paulette Stephens, an interior design consultant, included in the group. I am looking forward to showcasing more women such as this!
Is there anyone missing? Do let me know!
