Harper Baazar together with Gucci is celebrating the beauty of diversity in its April cover issue using Five African American Models as cover stars in its April Edition.
One of the models fronting this issue, Jourdana Phillips, speaks to Bazaar saying the fashion industry has an ability to make the less visible, visible.
She is pictured on the cover alongside Nykhor Paul, Grace Mahary, Ajak Deng, and Lameka Fox.
The Inspiration for the story is the sentiment of Gucci’s Creative Director, Alessandro Michele who told Harper Baazar after his A/W 17 show, “if we are going to push the conversation forward then we have to look beyond simply talking about models on the runway, and focus instead on individuality and faces that show humanity.”
