oh God I'm so happy right now for this news.

This is great! Could you imagine the number of new faces we could see in those pages and the exposure they will get the models, designers, makeup artists, hair stylists, stylists, editors. I really want there to be a strong black presence behind the scenes no whitewashing, no cultural insensitivity, no trite concepts for editorials.

gotta give it to her for investing as much time and effort in African/Black models and fashion in an otherwise not so friendly to black industry
check out her blog on the Vogue Italia website she wrote about her travels

I remember a photog in France who was trying to get support to start/establish a Vogue Africa but it never went anywhere. Maybe this is the reason why ^^

tru dat, hopefully this will show them that the industry is more than ready. Nigeria alone can sustain its own Vogue, same goes to South Africa
