Fashion: Black Urban Style categorized in separate section called “Vogueista Black” in Vogue Italia by @sleeptillnoon #w2tm Via @TeamMoet

yesterday morning in ‘The Business of Fashion’, journalist Jason Campbell highlights in his op-ed the fact that ‘Vogue Italia’ openly has an entirely separate section for documenting all things black and in fashion. some people could say this is an effort to give “special” focus and attention to an underrepresented segment of the fashion industry(-_-+), Campbell hones in on how this form of presentation separated street style images of stylish black men and women in a section of the site’s “Black Blog” called “Vogueista Black.”

the fashion industry is no stranger to criticism on its sometimes blatant displays on racism, body discrimination, and even borderline slave-like mannerisms(http://fashionista.com/2014/01/model-in-china/), so instead of continuing to harp on those truths Campbell chose to rationalize Vogue Italia’s actions with a broader perspective, he said, :

“At the crux of the matter is the fact that, at fashion companies, senior decision-makers and their teams are largely composed of white people and there is zero initiative to change the status quo. As the lack of racial diversity continues to plague the industry, misguided decisions, such as the one to launch ‘Vogue Black’ and segregate coverage of stylish blacks, are often taken because fashion’s boardrooms and editorial meetings are missing people who could bring alternative perspectives.”

Campbell also makes mention the efforts of people like Riccardo Tisci, Umit Benan, and the Diversity Coalition to eradicate defining difference by skin color.
